Blend softened butter and cream cheese with vanilla. Add powdered sugar and stir until smooth. Fold in chocolate chips. Spread on 12 cakes and top each with another cake.
These look much better than the shortening filled ones. I love your new soup blog!
I've never had a whoopie pie. I think they are more popular in parts of the country where I haven't lived
Oh my god. *drool* I need to make these now.
Never had a whoopie pie, but I want one just because I love the name! They do look scrumptious! And messy. Or maybe just messy for me!
Yum, that filling is calling to me! I know the cookie part is delish but it's always been the filling I savor.
These look really good! I've never had a whoopie pie, but I'd love to try one of these. :)
I recently posted a recipe for pumpkin chocolate cookies, but I really like the idea of making them into Whoopies!
Anne, these look so good. I also have never had a whoopie pie. How did I get to this age without a whoopie pie?
These look great! I have never made whoopie pies myself, I'm inspired. I bet they are a 100 times better than the ones you buy at the market. I wish I had one for breakfast!
These sound too delicious! I'm definitely serving these on Thanksgiving for the kids. The adults will love them, too, with a rich cup of Kona coffee.
Thanks, everyone! They were really yummy - and yes, Kathy - MESSY!
Ooooh, love these! Would be a fun dessert for the kids at Thanksgiving dinner.
Love love whoopie pies! Originally from New Englnd...very popular there and a staple dessert!!
