Chocolate and Marshmallow Fluff Whoopie Pies

I have never tasted whoopie pies before so have no idea if these taste as they should, but fancied having a go at making them. I must admit I was hoping for something light and they weren't, but the boys enjoyed them and have asked for them again so they can't be that bad!

So what do you need to make them? Well there are loads of different recipes on the web but as I had forgotton to order butter on my Tesco shop I went for one using vegetable oil instead.

To make 12 whoopie pies (24 halves) you need:

  • 250g plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 5 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 125ml vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 180ml milk

You just mix all the ingredients together and then place it in blobs on a piece of grease proof paper on a baking tray.

These were then put in an oven at 180C for 12-15 minutes.

I let these cool before filling with a layer of marshmallow fluff, and enjoy.

They weren't as fluffy as I had hoped. I would like to try a proper one to check it was right!
