Chocolate Monster Whoopie Pies




Happy Friday! These chocolate monster whoopie pies are perfect for Halloween week! They are relatively easy, and you can make them any size you want. Here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

Cookies:
4 oz. semisweet chocolate
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup unsalted butter
3 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 tsp. salt

Buttercream filling:
1 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup unsalted butter
2 Tbsp. heavy cream or milk (more as needed)
3-4 cups powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Put Silpat on baking sheet or line with parchment paper. Melted butter and chocolates in the microwave at 50% power one minute at a time until completely melted. Mix with the rest of the ingredients. Scoop out dough by rounded tsp. or Tbsp. (depending on the size whoopie pies you want). I piped mine using a piping bag to make them more uniform and I made mine about a Tbsp. size. Bake for about 6 minutes (an extra minute or two if you make them bigger). Let cool completely.

Whip together the buttercream ingredients and put into piping bag.  Match the cookies that are the closest in size and shape. Pipe buttercream on one cookie and create a sandwich with the matching pair. Use a small dot of buttercream to adhere eyes to the top to complete the monster. Enjoy!

Have a great Halloween weekend!
