Chocolate Whoopie Pies

So this morning I had the urge to make Chocolate Whoopie Pies. Since I like having something baked in the house to snack on, yeah its not good for me I know, but… just look at how delicious they look 🙂

. 247Well sadly for you, they’re even better then they look! You’re welcome to come help me eat them but you gotta bring some good cappuccino or hot chocolate along! But I will post the recipe in case you wanna make them!? They’re actually very easy to make.

1 1/2 c vegetable oil

3 c white sugar

3 eggs

1 1/8 c milk

1 c water

1 1/8 c sour cream

1 1/8 t salt

1 1/2 T vanilla

1 1/2 T baking soda

1 1/4 T baking powder

1 1/4 c cocoa

6 c flour

Mix together oil, sugar, and eggs, beat well. Add sour cream and vanilla and mix. add rest of ingredients and beat well. Drop by spoonsful on cookie sheets and bake at 400 for approx 6 min. (until you can touch in center with finger and the indent comes right back out)

Since i get tired of these greasy fillings that really don’t taste good I found a recipe that I like alot better.

Filling:

12 oz cream cheese (softened)

1 1/2 stick butter (softened)

3 beaten egg whites

4 1/2 t vanilla

9 T Milk

5-6 c powdered sugar

Cream together cream cheese and butter, add rest of ingredients and mix well. You want it to be kinda thick so it doesn’t squeeze out of the cookies when you’re eating them, so add powder sugar till the right consistency.

***Update*** 1-30-13

I made these again cause we ate the others so fast! And since the others didn’t have enough icing in them I would recommend using these amounts for the icing.

16 oz cream cheese

2 sticks butter

4 egg whites beaten

6 t vanilla

12 T milk or 3/4 cup would be easier 🙂

7-8 c powdered sugar

Wrap cookies individually with plastic wrap. These are great if you freeze them an eat them when they’re half thawed with a cup of coffee!

Enjoy!

  1. I have never tried that, but I suppose so, I would cover the dough with wax paper and probaly not refrigerate for more then 3 days… If you bake them all and then refrigerate or freeze they will stay good for a long time.
