Chocolate Whoopie Pies

Just because hubby and I are not eating desserts for Lent, doesn't mean I can't share one with yall right?!

I made these Chocolate Whoopie Pies awhile back (before Lent that is) for one of our weekly dinners with Brooke. I found the recipe on a site called Eat Better America. The BEST part is that each one is only 100 calories!! So you don't feel bad about eating one or two or...


Chocolate Whoopie Pies
from Eat Better America, makes 16 pies

Ingredients:
1 cup flour
1/4 cup unsweetened baking cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 egg white
1/2 cup 1% milk
3/4 cup marshmellow creme

Heat oven to 425. In medium bowl combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. In large bowl beat sugar, butter, and egg white for 2 min or until fluffy. Stir in flour mixture. Stir in milk until just blended. Drop dough by rounded tablespoons onto large ungreased baking sheets. You will need 32 drops of dough. Bake 5 min or until tops spring back when lightly touched. Cool completely on rack. Spoon marshmellow creme onto bottom of 16 cookies and top with remaining 16.



I actually halved the recipe when I made it... let me tell you I had to get quite creative to use 1/2 an egg white (don't ask). Might be easier to not try to cut it in half. The marshmellow creme applying step is very sticky!

mmm oozing marshmellow

I have tried a few recipes from that website before but never a dessert one so I was pleased with the results. These were quick and easy to make and very light tasting. Everyone enjoyed them! Let me know if you try them out! Next time I might add a few mini chocolate chips around the outside of the marshmellow layer. YUM!
