Wookiee-Approved Chocolate Whoopie Pies

by 

Amanda’s Whoopie pie recipe is THE BEST. I used it to make Wookiee Whoopies for our Star Wars Party. They are light and chewy and the filling is delicious! If you have never heard of a whoopie pie, you are missing out. Try this recipe and you will see what you’ve been missing!

It is very important to me to not make the very over-done “Wookiee Cookies” for this party. I want recipes that I haven’t seen before for a Star Wars party on Pinterest. I challenged Amanda to help me do more unique recipes and she delivered! Amanda created recipes for both these Whoopie pies AND Brookies (Brownie/Cookies) which we will share soon as well! Both were a total hit at the party!

This is the chocolate whoopie pie recipe you’ve been looking for!

Ingredients

  • For the Whoopie Pies:
  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour

  • 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder

  • 1 1/4 tsp Baking Soda

  • 1 tsp Salt

  • 1 cup Buttermilk

  • 1 tsp Vanilla

  • 1 Egg

  • 1 cup Brown Sugar

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) Unsalted Butter

  • For the Filling:
  • 1.5 heaping cups powdered sugar

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter

  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla

  • 1-2 tbsp half & half

  • 1/2 can of marshmallow fluff

Directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and prep 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • In large bowl/stand mixer, beat butter and brown sugar until creamy.
  • Add in and beat egg and vanilla.
  • In a medium bowl, sift dry ingredients together.
  • Alternate adding mixed dry ingredients and buttermilk into your butter/sugar mixture, adding a little at a time.
  • Using a cookie scoop*, scoop batter on to cookie sheet. It will look domed and that is okay.
  • Bake for 10 minutes at 350 F.
  • Remove from oven, allow to cool on cookie sheet for 5-10 minutes before moving whoopies individually to cooling rack to finish cooling. * I added some sprinkles while they were warm and they stuck to the spongy tops well.
  • While they cool, prepare the filling by combining the butter and sugar, adding vanilla and then 1-2 tablespoons of half & half. Add half of a can of marshmallow fluff.
  • Put filling mixture into a piping back or zip lock bag and cut a hole in the tip or corner of bag. When whoopies have completely cooled, fill the middle with filling (about 1-1.5 tablespoons) and close. * I added sprinkles to the inside filling for extra pizazz.

Notes

  • * I used 2 different size scoops. My medium and small ones so I could make enough to serve at our party. You need 2 whoopie domes for each whoopie pie.

We will be sharing a bunch of recipes from my daughter’s Star Wars themed birthday this month and included were these cherry “Han Pies” and this “Tie Fighter” Pesto Caprese Pasta Salad. Please enjoy all of the Star Wars fun and May the 4th Be with You, Always! 😉
