Homemade Whoopie Pie’s

Leave a comment

Hey!

Whoopie Pies? What are Whoopie pie’s was my first thought. Well these small cakes originate from the US and are two small chocolate cakes sandwiched together with a yummy centre.

I have two recipe’s for Whoopie Pie’s but the recipe I’m sharing with you is the easiest and quickest to make.

This recipe was  made by Simon Rimmer.

To make these yummy easy treats you will need:

125g / 4.5 oz – Butter

150g / 5.5 oz – Fair Trade Chocolate (minimum of 70% cocoa solids)

225g / 8oz – Sugar (granulated)

3 large free range eggs

1 tsp Vanilla extract

250g / 8 oz – Flour (plain)

30g / 1 oz – Cocoa powder

1/2 tsp – Baking Powder

20 large marshmallows / bag of mini marshmallows

What you need to do:

1. Preheat your oven to 180 / Gas mark 4. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.

2. Melt the butter and chocolate in a bowl over pan of simmering water.

5. Place tablespoons of the mixture onto the tray – this should make about 36 biscuits (if it doesn’t make that many don’t worry)

6. Bake in the oven for 6 – 8 minutes (keep an eye on them as you don’t want them to burn).

7. Remove from the oven and set aside on a cooling rack.  Keep half the biscuit cakes on the tray and turn over. Place the marshmallows on top (if using mini marshmallows use as many as you like, I made sure mine covered the whole cake.

8. Return the cakes to the oven and bake for a further 2-3 minutes, until the marshmallows are going soft but not burnt.

9. Remove from the oven and cool slightly on the cooling rack. Place the other half of the cake on top.

 

Let them cool slightly if you can and enjoy the gooey marshmallow chocolate Whoopie pie.
