Thursday night of every week is officially deemed Dessert Night in our home. I needed to find a way to cut down on the constant requests for junk food from four hungry mouths and this seemed to be the perfect solution. We've had this system in place for a couple of years now. Typically, I lean toward the lazy side and scoop them some ice cream that we almost always have on hand. Then there are the occasional batch of brownies I whip up earlier in the day. I took some cake decorating classes a while back and we more cake than we could stand for 3 months straight.
I had the urge to make something different for this week's dessert, but didn't have much more than basic ingredients in my pantry. So I got to work, going through my cookbooks to see if there was a simple, yet yummy recipe I could make work with what I had on hand. Martha Stewart came to the rescue and I had just what I needed to make whoopie pies with chocolate frosting filling.
[Find the recipe HERE. I made my own frosting filling.]
I overheard Carter say they were better than Nana's whoopie pies. Gasp! A comment like that is unheard of from this boy, so I'll be adding this to our favorites and tuck it away for a future occasion.
