My Fabulous Baker Boy - Chocolate Delights

Whoopie Pies!
I have found some great foodie blogs lately and have started to follow more foodie types on Twitter and I have noticed that 'Whoopie Pies' kept getting a mention. I had not heard of these before so I hit the magic Google button to discover what they are.

Historical note of interest: Amish women would use the cake leftovers to make pies similar to these to pack in their husband's and children's lunchboxes, when they found them they would shout "Whoopie!" - apparently!

Back to the baking - they ticked all the boxes: Do they look yummy? check Do I have the ingredients? sort of but check
Ok then let's give it a go!

Big sister "E" is still on holiday so she joins My Fabulous Baker Boy again to help, and no doubt lick the spoons!

The following comes from a mish mash of different recipes I found online, the sponge mix worked but I feel I could tweak the filling.

Collect all your ingredients:

100g/4oz stork or butter
50g/2oz caster sugar
50g/2oz soft brown sugar
2 eggs
4 tbsp cocoa powder
225g/5oz SR flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
120ml/4 fl oz milk

Put all of the above in a mixing bowl.......

....and MIX!

Dollop onto baking paper lined trays. I got 12 dollops from the above mixture and remember to space out!
Lick the spoons!

Bake for about 15 minutes, 170c fan oven

For the filling:

200g/8oz caster sugar
100g/4oz butter
100g/4oz melted marshmallows
1 tsp vanilla extract

Mix together all of the above then spread over half of the bases.

And sandwich together and enjoy!
