This recipe came from my Mother-in-Law, Marion. It is the one and only Whoopie Pie my husband and his family likes. They say that these are the BEST!

How to Make Chocolate Frosted Whoopie Pies

Step-by-Step

  1. MIX TOGETHER DRY INGREDIENTS:
    flour, baking soda, salt, cocoa powder & sugar
    THEN ADD:
    egg, cooking oil, vanilla & milk
    Beat together just until blended.
  2. Drop by tablespoon onto a cookie sheet (greased or lined with parchment paper). Leave room for spreading. Bake 12 minutes in 350 degree oven until edges are slightly firm. Let stand for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
  3. Using a mixer on medium-low speed, combine the ingredients for the filling.

    Spread the filling between two cookies.
    ***This mixture makes just enough filling to put a small amount on each pie. If you prefer to use more, you may wish to increase it the portions by 1/2 each.
  4. FROSTING:
    In a saucepan, stir chocolate and margarine over low heat until melted. Gradually add confectioners' sugar and warm milk creating a thin frosting (like a glaze). Spread the glaze on top of the whoopie pies and let cool.
