Chocolate Whoopie Pies

There's just something about this recipe that reminds me of Valentine's Day. Hmmm.  What could that be.  See title.  That being said, my photos might not be exactly sigh inducing.  But this really is a good recipe.  So be sure to make some for your sweetheart this year. 

 The pies...

Mix the dry ingredients.

1 2/3 cups flour
2/3 cup sifted unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

In a new bowl mix 4 tbsp softened butter, 4 tbsp oil and 1 cup packed brown sugar.  Mix in 1 beaten egg.  Then add 1 1/4 cups milk and 1 tsp vanilla.  Now stir in the flour mixture.  Drop dollops of the batter onto two parchment lined baking sheets.  Bake at 375 for around 10 minutes.  Now for the filling.  

Mix 1 8 oz. softened package of cream cheese, 1/4 cup softened butter and one 7 oz jar of marshmallow fluff.  I use a standing mixer for this.  (And for a special Valentine's addition.  You could add red food coloring to the fluff.)

Spread the fluff mixture and sandwich between your cooled cookies. My food photography leaves much to be desired.  You can't even see the fluff stuff.  oh well.

a couple of years ago, on my first trip to Maine, a friend suggested we buy some and I had no idea what they were. Oh, my. Addictive. And these look wonderful. I wrote down the recipe. Thank you. I think. :)
