CHOCOLATE STRAWBERRY WHOOPIE PIES
- 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.
