I’ve become quite infatuated with sandwich cookies in many forms, and whoopie pies are one of my favorite varieties. The cookies are puffy and cake-like, and just adorable when sandwiched with a yummy filling. Recently my friend Sarah asked for help making chocolate marshmallow whoopie pies and I jumped at the chance. Even though I have tried pumpkin whoopie pies and red velvet whoopie pies, I had yet to try the chocolate-marshmallow combo, which to my understanding is the “classic” whoopie pie flavor.
So we made them, and we loved them. The cookie was rich and chocolatey and the marshmallow filling was just right – good marshmallow flavor but not too sticky. As is often the case, I actually thought these tasted even better the second day after the flavors had time to meld. If you’ve ever had a classic whoopie pie or even if you’ve never tried one, I bet you’ll like these.
