Classic Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Peanut Butter Filling

'Nuff with the macarons, make way for whoopie pies instead! :D

Classic Chocolate Whoopie Pies
From Whoopie Pies
(Makes about 12 medium-large whoopie pies)

1 2/3 cups of all-purpose flour
2/3 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking soda
1/2 teaspoon of salt
4 tablespoons of unsalted butter
4 tablespoons of vegetable shortening
1 cup of brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
1 cup of milk


1. Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F) and have all ingredients at room temperature.
2. Beat the butter, shortening, and sugar together.
3. Add in the egg and vanilla extract.
4. Sift together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt
5. Add half of the dry mixture and half of the milk to the wet ingredients. Mix until combined.
6. Add in the remaining half of the dry mixture and the milk. Mix until completely combined.
7. Using a spoon or ice cream scoop, drop 1 (mini) or 2 (medium-large, what I made) tablespoons of the batter onto your parchment paper. Remember to evenly space the batter.
8. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cakes spring back when lightly tapped. Remove from the oven and let it cool on the tray for 10-15 minutes.
9. Gently remove the cakes from the parchment paper and allow it to cool.
10. Make your favorite frosting to fill the whoopie pies!

Since I'm craving peanut butter at that time, so I opt peanut butter filling for my whoopie pies and it was so damn yummy!

Peanut Butter Filling


4 tbsp of unsalted butter
3/4 cup of peanut butter
1/4 cup of confectioners' sugar
1/2 tsp of salt


1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl of an electric mixer and mix it until smooth. Transfer filling and it's ready to use.


So chocolatey good! But pardon the rupa of the whoopie pies. :D
