Hey Everyone, I made these for the FIRST time this weekend for my besties baby shower, along with a ton of other desserts, and THESE WERE A HIT!! I personally didn't even think they were that great...I really didn't try a full one to be honest, but I am always nervous about serving guest desserts that I have just made for the first time. You know what I mean??
What if they hate it, and won't tell you? What if they taste horrible?
But this was not the case at all, EVERYONE loved them...some even took a few home for their husbands.
So, I thought I would post the recipe today...
Warning: I swear my hand started to spasm from all the mixing....I know....should have used the stand-up mixer, but I LOVE my hand mixer...
3 c. Sugar
1 c. Butter
1/2 c. Veggie Oil
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
6 c. all-purpose flour
2 c. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tbsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 c. Milk
Filling, recipe follows
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl of an electric mixer, beat the sugar, butter and eggs together until well combined.Add the oil and vanilla and beat again.
In a separate bowl, combine all of the dry ingredients. Add half of the dry mixture to the egg mixture and beat or stir to blend. Add 1 1/2 c. Milk and beat again. Add the remaining dry mixture and beat until incorporated. Add the remaining 1 1/2 cups milk and beat until blended.
With a large spoon, scoop out 32 circles of batter onto a greased baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool. Spread filling onto 16 circles and place remaining circles on top, to make 16 Whoopie Pies.
1 1/2 c. Shortening
3 c. Confectioners Sugar
1 1/3 c. Marshmallow Topping
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
1/3 to 1/2 c. Milk
In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine all ingredients except the milk and beat well. Add just enough milk to achieve a creamy consistency. Spread filling across cooled cookie circles.
