Whoop-Dee-Doo! It's Whoopie Pie Time! Well, My Version Anyway

First a disclaimer.  These are not actually Whoopie Pies. These are just what I CALL Whoopie Pies, because I find the name so amusing. Whoopie Pies are actually chocolate cake/cookies filled with marshmallow cream (or sometimes buttercream). THESE are Toll House cookies sans chocolate chips, nuts or anything else for that matter, sandwiched with marshmallows and then some other stuff as well. Think Whoopie Pie meets S'More

I halved the recipe on the Nestlé chocolate chip bag. (WHEN am I going to be brave enough to add browned butter to my chocolate chip cookies?) That made exactly 16 cookies shaped with my levelled-off 2 tablespoon (1 oz.) ice cream scoop. 

First, I put marshmallows on one half and chocolate chips on the other. 

I nuked them on high for about 30 seconds. (My microwave is REALLY old. Any others less than 10 years old, try 15 seconds first.) Hmmm...pretty good.  

Then I added peanut butter UNDER the marshmallows.  

Definitely the way to go.

I don't really care what I call them. Whether they're  counterfeit Whoopie Pies or Toll House S'mores, they are whooping (whopping?) good...

Yummmmmm... not much else to say about this one.

Counterfeit or not, you came up with a great idea. They are like s'mores without the graham, or like a marshmallow chipless-wich. Delicious none the less, Sue.

Oh my ~ you have been busy. These look decadent. I'm on my way to whip up a batch.

It sounds a whole lot better than "real" whoopie pies -- as I remember they're basically oreo cookie filling (lots of shortening and sugar) and marshmallow fluff mixed together. For those times when you care enough only to make the most shelf-stable food!

I went to college in Lancaster County, PA where whoopie pies were a way of life. They varied in quality, depending on who made them, but they tended to be a bit overrated. Too much about the sugar. These look way better. They're sort of like Tollhouse cookies with the chips in another location and a marshmallow freebie.

It looks so delicious
Thanks for sharing

Sue said...

Thanks Jen.

True, Adam. I love chipless-wich! That's just what they are.

Tell me how they are.

Hi Kimmi,
Thank you!
PS That URL didn't work... :(

Now that you mention it, I don't think I've ever had a real Whoopie Pie. I may need to...just for comparison purposes...

That's funny.

I vote for marshmallow freebies for everyone!

Hi John,
Welcome! Thanks for stopping by.

Oh WOW. I can't make these.. I wouldn't be able to stop eating them. Cookies, peanut butter, marshmallows, chocolate, DELICIOUS!

I like your version of a whoopie pie much better.
