Whoopie Pie's with Peanut Butter Filling...

Here is a super fun recipe! I love me some Whoopie Pies and I love any chocolate and peanut butter combo. So when I found this recipe I was over the moon. Can you say yum?!

Whoopie Pie's with Peanut Butter Filling                                                                                                Original Recipe Found Here

Here's What You'll Need

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 cup hot water
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup white sugar
1 cup butter
1 egg

For The Peanut Butter filling
1 tablespoon butter
1 3/4 cups confectioners' sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup milk

Ruffled apron optional, but I'm sure it helps the process.

Cream the butter and egg.

Add 1 cup white sugar, vanilla and hot water and beat until combined. Don't be deterred by the ickyness look of this. Think of the end product and yummness (yup made that up!) that is to come.

Stir in the flour, cocoa, and baking soda and mix well. Place teaspoons full onto cookie sheets and bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 10 minutes. This recipe makes 12 whoppie pies.

To Make Peanut Butter filling: Blend 1 tablespoon butter and peanut butter. Stir in confectioners' sugar and add enough milk to make frosting soft enough to spread. Spread between the flat sides of two cookies and sandwich together. 

 I then like to beat on high for at least 3 minutes so the filling becomes light and fluffy.

Seriously yum, I could eat it straight from the bowl.

Make sure yo have a cute little person on hand to lick the beaters. Or do it yourself. Or have one each, that worked for me.

 Sandwich cookies together with Peanut Butter Frosting.

So good, and a perfect treat for after school. My sweet big girl was very excited to come home to them and a long glass of milk. Yum.
