Whoopie Pie from Green Gracie Home

I am so happy to be here at Sugar Bee Crafts...thank you Mandy for having me and all of my zaniness!
I am Beverly from Green Gracie Home where I blog about running a little decor company while raising 4 kids and a hound (oh, and two frogs and a few hamsters). 
These are some of my favorites to make with my kiddos, mainly because I love to eat these treats when we are done...

Whoopie pie

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Whoopie pie (alternatively called a gob, black-and-white, bob, or "BFO" for Big Fat Oreo) is an American baked good that may be considered either a cookie, pie, or cake. It is made of two round mound-shaped pieces of chocolate cake, or sometimes pumpkin cake, with a sweet, creamy filling or frosting sandwiched between them.

If you have never had a whoopie pie, now is your chance - there are many recipes, but this is a quick, easy and delicious one!  It has all the best parts of a brownie - crunchy, chewy, moist. 



Ingredients:

  • 1 box Duncan Hines Chewy Fudge (important)
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips -  I use a 6 oz bag of mini chips
  • Frosting - I use Publix frosting that they have by the bakery, but Duncan Hines recommends their Homestyle Classic Vanilla
Preheat your oven to 350 and spray two cookie sheets.

Get a cute helper:



Place your ingredients in the bowl:



When you stir, it is very thick and you think you don't have enough liquid.  Keep stirring and you will get a large ball of batter.



Drop onto cookie sheet - I use a mini-scooper.





Your helper will wonder where her chocolate chips went.



Bake until just cracked and barely set in center - about 12 minutes.  Transfer to a cooling rack and let cool for at least 30 minutes (you don't want to melt your frosting).



Add a layer of frosting and make little sandwiches.



Try not to eat them all before lunch time!
