If this is your first introduction to the Whoopie Pie, the name may be worth a giggle, but it’s misleading! A Whoopie Pie is somewhere between a cake and a biscuit.

Whisk together the butter and sugar.
In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder and baking powder. Whisk in the egg. Beat well.
Fill a piping bag with the mixture and pipe 5cm round cakes onto the lined baking trays.

Allow to cool before adding your filling.
Whoopie Pie Marshmallow Filling
20 White Marshmallows
20 White Chocolate Buttons
Makes filling for 5 Whoopie Pies
Add the water to a metal bowl over a bain-marie on a low heat. Break the marshmallows in half and add to the water.
Stir for a few minutes and then add in the white chocolate buttons. Stir the mixture until the chocolate and marshmallows have dissolved. Let the mixture cool for 15 minutes.
Spoon the mixture on to one half the whoopie pie and sandwich the other half on top.
