Whoopie Pies


These marshmallow filled biscuits are delicious and simple to make too!

Ingredients

4oz butter
150g chocolate (milk or dark is fine)
8oz sugar
3 medium eggs
1 tbsp vanilla extract
8oz flour
1oz cocoa powder
Fluff/20 marshmallows


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
Melt together the butter and chocolate in a pan on a low heat, stirring continuously. 
In a bowl whisk together the eggs, sugar and vanilla extract.


Fold in the chocolate and butter mixture.
Sift in the flour and cocoa powder and fold in.
Place tablespoons of the mixture on to a baking tray or in a muffin tray and bake for around 10 minutes until cooked and firm yet springy to the touch. 
Allow to cool.


Melt the marshmallows, in a microwaveable bowl for a few seconds, and spoon onto half of the biscuits.
Add another biscuit on top to create the whoopie pies

Scoff!

  1. Yummy! Did you know that Whoopie Pies used to be made out of leftover cake mixture then put into husband's lunch boxes? When they open their lunchbox and saw them they would shout 'Whoopie!' :0) x
