There's an Amish market about 15 minutes from me that makes and sells the most delicious looking Whoopie Pies. So far I've resisted; they're a bit steep at $5 each —and you know I could never buy just one!
A traditional Whoopie Pie consists of two bun-shaped pieces of chocolate cake with a white creamy filling sandwiched in the middle. And while that's a great combo, I figured if I was going to make Whoopie Pies... why not take it up a notch! Here's my version, made with brownies & raspberry buttercream, just in time for Valentine's Day.
Heart Shaped Brownie Whoopie Pies Recipe
- 1 box dark chocolate brownie mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1 cup butter; softened
- 4 oz raspberries
- 2 cups powdered sugar
Prepare brownies according to box directions. Allow to cool.
Remove from pan and cut as many heart shapes as possible with cookie cutter.
Puree raspberries in food processor or blender.
In a medium bowl, cream butter and raspberry puree.
Add in powdered sugar 1 cup at a time. Mixing until smooth and creamy.
Transfer filling to piping bag.
Pipe filling around the edge of one of the brownie hearts. Then fill in the middle. Top with another brownie heart, gently pressing down to make a sandwich.
For the finishing touch, dust the tops with powdered sugar.
