Newest Video Recipe - Halloween Whoopie Pies


New Video Recipes Every Thursday by Noon Eastern Time.

Catch up on all the latest videos by clicking    in the above player.

Chocolate Whoopie Pies take two round domed shaped chocolate cookies and sandwiches them together with a sweet vanilla flavored filling. While the filling is usually white, to dress them for Halloween I colored the filling orange and used some of it to pipe cute Jack o' Lantern faces on the tops of the Whoopie Pies.

Halloween Whoopie Pies are made with chocolate cookies that are wonderfully soft and moist which makes them seem more like a small cake than a cookie. In fact, they are often described as a Devil's Food Cake in cookie form. Their dark chocolate color and flavor comes from using unsweetened cocoa powder (either Dutch processed (my favorite) or natural) and the addition of buttermilk helps to contribute to their moist texture. You can use store bought buttermilk or buttermilk powder, or you can make a good substitute. Just stir 1 teaspoon lemon juice or vinegar into 1/4 cup (60 ml/grams) milk and let it stand at room temperature for about 10 minutes before using. The other liquid in these cookies is coffee, but if you are making these for the kids you can just use water.

What makes Halloween Whoopie Pies exceptional is that they are sandwiched together with a vanilla flavored filling that has a soft and creamy texture and almost marshmallow flavor and that is due to the addition of shortening (if you can't find shortening replace it with an equal amount of butter) and light corn syrup (can use golden syrup or brown rice syrup).
