Whoopie pies are a great summer treat for they are fattening, chocolately and absolutely delicious. They are convenient and readily available at many commercially known supermarkets, or you can find homemade ones at local mom and pop stores. Or, you could try making your own!

Chocolate cake is the go-to cake for birthday celebrations throughout the year and although it's fabulously delicious each time, it has become a bit repetitive. Try making homemade whoopie pies for they are quick to bake and assemble and you'll be snacking on these decadent delights wherever you are. Pack them in your cooler for a day at the beach and add some birthday candles for a unique birthday treat. Enjoy!

Does it get any better than this?

I've never had a whoopie but have been wanting to. Looks like I may just make my own now that I've found your recipe!

Hello! These really are great, chocolately and so creamy. These are the second time I made them, better than the first. Perfect consistency this time, previously the filling was a tad too oozy. Yummy. Thanks for the votes and shares!

Hi kelley - I don't know a whole lot about gluten free baking, but I do like eating gluten free. I've tried gluten free brownies and other treats from local stores and I find them delicious. I'm glad you know how to adapt this recipe to fit your needs. Enjoy! Thank you for stopping by :)

Hi thranak- In summertime we have whoopie pies quite often from a local store. They are quite good, but homemade ones are a really special treat! You are right, they are very special. Let me know how you like these if you try them. Thanks for stopping by :)

I love whoopie pies but never really knew a recipe or how to make them. I remember eating these things as a child almost every week. It was a special dessert. Ill have to try to make them up sometime!
