Chocolate Strawberry Whoopie Pies

By  | 

Whether you’re hosting a big deal Valentine party and need ideas for a sweet dessert table or just celebrating with your nearest and dearest, you’ll want to serve a special treat. Something that will make their faces light up with delight. Something that makes them shout, “whoopie!”

I submit this sweet little recipe that is likely to do both.

And the thing that will also put a smile on your face? It looks and tastes special, but it is not a difficult recipe. Chocolate and strawberry are classic pairings with a color scheme that looks like it was made for Valentine’s Day.

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg

In a large bowl, mix together all ingredients until well blended. Make sure that the cocoa powder is mixed in well and no “yellow” batter spots remain.


Use a muffin scoop and scoop the batter onto a greased or parchment paper covered cookie sheet. You should be able to make 16 patties with the dough (that will make a total of 8 whoopie pies). Bake at 350 degrees for about 12 to 15 minutes. Let the pies cool completely before adding the frosting.


  • 1 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • ½ cup butter
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons strawberry milk mix

Mix all of the frosting ingredients together well or whip together with an electric hand mixer. Place a large dollop of frosting into the middle of one of the whoopie pie patties and top with another patty. Enjoy immediately or store in the fridge until ready to eat.
