Soft 'n' Sticky Chocolate Whoopie Pies

Saturday, 19 October 2013

I've heard it's National Chocolate Week and I haven't touched a single piece all week... So I baked these Soft 'n' Sticky Chocolate Whoopie Pies (mouthful) just in time. They consist of two cake like cookies sandwiched together with a fluffy marshmallow filling, yum! Here is a simple recipe adapted from here, I made fewer and fatter cookies than the recipe resulting in the indulgent treats you see above.

You will need:
150g chocolate (minimum 70% cocoa)
125g butter
225g sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
250g flour
30g cocoa powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
6 marshmallows (or more if your cookies are smaller)

Pre-heat the oven to 180C/fan /gas 4 and grease or line two baking trays (for 6 pies). Melt the chocolate and butter together in a bowl over a saucepan with water on a medium heat.  

Whisk the sugar, eggs and vanilla together in a separate bowl before folding in the chocolate mixture.

Sift the flour, cocoa and baking powder together and fold into the chocolate and egg mixture.

Until it looks like this...

Place 6 big tablespoons of the gooey mixture onto each baking tray and bake for roughly 6-8 minutes (the time will vary if you want your cookies to be bigger or smaller).

Remove from the oven and set aside half of the cookies and turn over the remaining cookies. Place a marshmallow on each cookie bottom and bake for a further 2-3 minutes.

Remove from the oven and set aside to cool slightly before sandwiching your cookies together.

Press the top cookie slightly so that the sticky marshmallow oozes out.

And then you can tuck into your big cookie sandwiches!
