  • Whisk flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking powder, and baking soda in a bowl. Beat 1 cup butter and white sugar in a separate large bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, until mixture is creamy. Beat eggs and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract into butter mixture.

  • Stir half the flour mixture into wet ingredients, followed by milk; stir remaining flour mixture into dough. Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto baking sheets. For 25 whoopie pies, make 50 cookies.

  • Bake cookies in the preheated oven until set and lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Let cool completely.

  • Beat 3/4 cup butter with confectioners' sugar in a bowl, using an electric mixer; beat 2 teaspoons vanilla extract and marshmallow creme into filling. Spread at least 1 teaspoon filling on the bottom of a cookie and top with a second cookie. Repeat with remaining cookies and filling.

Cook's Note:

Cookies keep best in the fridge or freezer.

This was not a good recipe. The cookie is dry and the cream was too runny. The cookies looked horrible with the cream in the middle; the cream wouldn t set and kept running down the bottom cookie. My kids liked the taste but I thought it was just so so since the cookie was dry. Read More

Very easy recipe but like one of the other reviewers I ran out of filling. I would say that 1.5 times the filling would be absolutely perfect! I also only cooked the cookies/cake for 8 minutes and that was spot on. Read More

We liked this! We made a little extra filling and found that it was too much for our liking. We also added a 1/4 teaspoon mint extract and some oreo crumbs for texture! Rich and delicious. Read More
