Chocolate Whoopie Pies
Oh my! How did I ever let this one slip by? As I was going through some old pictures I found this one of Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Dulce de Leche frosting that I made back in the Fall. These were a huge hit, they were insanely delicious, and yet I somehow completely forgot to post them. Wow! My bad!
I had some leftover Dulce de Leche Buttercream Frosting after making a batch of Tres Leches Cupcakes (which you need to make if you haven't yet!). I couldn't bear the idea of tossing the frosting, bit I wasn't in the mood for more cupcakes. So, after thumbing through a bunch of my cookbooks, I settled on the Chocolate Whoopie Pies from Baked Explorations (you can't go wrong with those guys!). Their recipe called for a Swiss Vanilla filling, but I used my leftover Dulce de Leche buttercream frosting, and it went together perfectly! The whoopie pies are a deep dark chocolate, and I think for my first time making whoopie pies, they don't look half bad! These got rave reviews from everyone, including the hubby!
Check out the recipe for the Whoopie Pies at Modern Domestic, and the frosting recipe at Bakers Royale......and Enjoy!
