Baked Sunday Mornings: Chocolate Whoopie Pies

This week's Baked Sunday Mornings was chocolate whoopie pies, a fairly straightforward mix of 2 chocolate cake cookies with a marshmallowy frosting.  These were easy to put together -- the cake didn't even require a mixer and the frosting came together quickly.

I enjoyed these, as did the two events I brought them to (the recipe said it would make 15-17 small pies, I got 24 small and two very large).  However, knowing the enormous amount of butter in the filling made me think that they could have been just as good with a less rich filling.  Even at a small size, one is really enough.  I was thinking that the filling could also be made in other flavors -- salted caramel, mint, or raspberry (which would make a nice Valentine's day pink color) all came to mind.  I will certainly try that in the future.

You can find the recipe and all the other bakers' creations on the Baked Sunday Mornings website.


  1. These were fun to bake and much more fun to eat. I agree that the filling was quite rich...I will do something different next time. For me, the butter overpowered the chocolate flavor...or maybe I used too much filling. Anyway, I like the filling, but for something else, and I loved these light, tasty cookies and I like your filling flavor ideas...I had thought to do raspberry which would be wonderful, but decided on Cherry, which also worked well.

  2. salted caramel?! sounds super good! your whoopies look great!

  3. Please try them with a salted caramel frosting and post the recipe here for all of us. That sounds incredible!

  4. I agree - these have a lot of potential for different fillings & flavor combinations. They were easy to make & would be a terrific alternative to cupcakes for any kind of gathering.

  5. Oooh... salted caramel filling. I'm in.
