Chocolate Whoopie Pies And Salted Caramel Filling

Blog-checking lines: The December Daring Bakers’ Challenge had us all cheering – the lovely and talented Bourbonnatrix of Bourbonnatrix Bakes was our hostess and challenged us to make fun, delicious and creative whoopie pies! Delicious little cake-like cookies sandwiching luscious filling in any flavors we chose… And I made Chocolate Whoopie Pies With A Salted Caramel Filling. What else is there to say but “Whoopie!”

It is really difficult to make something you have never tasted or seen. I have no idea what whoopie pies taste like, and I have only ever seen them on one blog. So when this month’s daring bakers’ challenge was for whoopie pies, I turned to my copy of Miss Melicious Cupcakes for help. I adapted the recipe on page 71 for the chocolate whoopie pies but decided to make a filling using my salted caramel as Dave has not stopped raving about it since I made my ice cream. I had a visitor for dinner the night I made these and so they were served as dessert. They went down a treat and I am sure that they will make a perfect dessert for any occasion. If I were to host a tea party, these chocolate whoopie pies with a salted caramel filling would definitely make an appearance.  The chocolate taste was really enhanced by the salted caramel.

  4. That looks delicious Tandy! I’ve had Whoopie Pies a few times and they’re kind of like a cross between a cake and a cookie or really more a muffin top sandwiched together. The salted caramel filling sounds divine!

  5. I know exactly what you mean! I love to try recipes from around the world, but often I can only judge “do I like this?” and nothing about the authenticity.

  6. Lol! I know what you mean… I made Red Velvet Whoopie Pie without ever having tried a “real one”. This recipe sounds awesome… YUM Salted Caramel, yes please!!

  7. they look divine–i have to give your salted caramel a try sometime soon–however i know if i do make it–i will have a constant spoon in the jar
