How To Make German Chocolate, Coconut Cream Filled Whoopie Pies

Updated on October 23, 2012
The chocolate layers and the coconut cream filling are a great combination.

The Pleasure Of Chocolate Whoopie Pies!

My husband is on a quest. His goal is to create the most sensational, extraordinary, delectable whoopie pies a person can imagine. Last month, his creation was a pumpkin variety that absolutely sold me on his adventurous culinary journey.

This month he has made a German Chocolate, Coconut Cream filled whoopie pie. The smooth chocolate pie coverings are a deep, rich, smooth flavor with a soft texture, which makes this dessert a superb after dinner treat. My first filling preference was marshmallow, but the coconut cream was surprisingly delicious.

By the way, did you know that German Chocolate Cake was not created in Germany? The original name was in honor of Sam German who made a chocolate bar in 1852 for the Baker's Chocolate company. The cake was commonly referred to back then as German's Chocolate Cake recipe.

A Little Humorous Background Story

In order to maintain a healthier diet, we use organic, natural, fresh ingredients as much as possible. The recipe listed below is from the book written by S. Billngsley and A. Treadwell, Whoopie Pies. The recipe ingredients are posted as listed in the book. However, we substituted with our natural foods where possible. For example, whole wheat, organic, flour instead of the all purpose.

As my husband was baking in the kitchen, it suddenly dawned upon him that we could have used our own coconuts for the recipe. Now, we already had the natural, organic coconut milks and flakes, but the notion to go a step further was exciting to him. Not to me. Climbing up the tree was totally out of the question.

However, for sake of curiousity, I went outside and looked up at the tree, which rose up from the ground over 100 feet, and decided the risk was not worth it. As I stood looking up, circling the tree, my toe suddenly hit upon a small coconut the size of a walnut. Shortly thereafter, another fell to the ground a few inches from this one. It became quite clear, as I gazed upwards, a squirrel was up there tossing down coconuts.

I realized that he considered my presence a threat to his treasure of coconuts. I, on the other hand, considered him a great nuisance. The thought occurred to me to go back inside, reach out through my upstairs window, and pelt him with his own coconut missles! But instead, I just quietly retreated inside and informed my hubby that it was way too dangerous a mission.

Yesterday, I saw my squirrel friend eating a coconut in the tree as I walked by on my way to the gym. I could have sworn I heard chuckling!

The Typical Coconut Tree

We have three coconut trees in our front yard.  Here is a view of the crown of the tree from underneath looking upwards.  Where is that squirrel?

Coconut Tree Trivia

Coconut, is the fruit of the coco palm (cocos nucifera), a tree widely distributed through topical regions. The seed is peculiarly adapted to dispersal by water because the large pod holding the nut is buoyant and impervious to moisture. The trees therefore establish themselves naturally on small islands and low shores bordering the topical seas. The tree grows to a height of 60 -100 feet, with a smooth cylindrical stem marked by the ring-like scars of former leaves. It bears at the top a crown of frond-like leaves or white blossoms.

The number of nuts varies; a well-cared-for tree may yield 75 to 200 annually. The mature fruit as it comes from the tree is encased in a thick, brown fibrous husk. The nut itself has a hard woody shell, with three round scars at one end; the embryo lies against the largest scar and emerges through it as a developing plant. Through this easily punctured spot the "milk" of the young coconut may be drained. (Source: Fact Monster.com; coconut)

Note: Coconut Trees only grow in the topical areas of Florida and Hawaii in the United States.

Coconut Cream Filling

Ingredients:

  • 4 tbs unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 3/4 c confectioner's sugar
  • 3 tbs sweetened shredded coconut
  • 2 tbs unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 3 tbs coconut milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

In a medium to large bowl, using low speed, beat together the butter and sugar until combined. Add the sweetened coconut, unsweetened coconut, coconut milk, and vanilla. beat on low until smooth about 5 minutes

  • Variation: Add 1 tablespoon solid coconut oil.


Optional:

You can roll the completed whoopie pies in 1 1/2 c toasted coconut mixed with 1 cup chopped pecans. We placed shredded coconut on a lightly oiled baking sheet, broiled it in a 350 degree oven for about 5 minutes to brown. However, some ovens may take shorter or longer broiling time to brown the shredded coconut.

After the coconut is toasted, let it cool slightly (about three to four minutes) and mix with the chopped pecans. You can roll the edges of the German Chocolate, cream-filled, whoopie pies in this mix for a tasty finish.

      Love your background story and I can imagine how delicious those coconut cream whoopie pies must be. I grew up with coconut trees in the backyard, so I've to say, I chuckle along with your squirrel. Rated up.

      I don't know why, Dianna, but the first thing I thought of was that is the ugliest squirrel I think I have ever seen. Then my thoughts went to German chocolate, which is my favorite cake, and now I'm drooling. Wonderful recipe which we will be trying. :)

      The squirrel story is priceless. They are such a nuisance up here for we have shorter growing seasons than down your way. About one chance to grow things per year.

My standard milk substitute is almond or coconut milk; oil for baking. I sometimes think it's the same squirrel making all the trouble! Take care dear one.

      I have never eaten a whoopie pie of any kind but this one of yours certainly sounds delicious. Loved seeing the squirrel eating the coconut. I never even gave that a thought that they would go after them as they do nuts. One thing is sure...at least for the large coconuts, you won't have to keep pulling up trees from them burying the coconuts as we do the oak trees from acorns continually being planted by the busy squirrels in our area.

      Ignugent, I didn't know squirrels loved coconut, I do now. They are busy up in the trees collecting them over the winter season in Florida. Thanks for coming by.

      Peggy, it is a cute video isn't it? You wouldn't think they could get through the tough shell of the coconut, but they do. You will have to try a whoopie pie some time, they are yummy. Enjoy your weekend.

      Patty, you may have something there. At least all the baking and mess would be out of the home... just kidding. Be well and strong today.

      Wow, I am amazed that squirrels can get through coconut husks! I lived in Hawaii as a child, and I recall when people would come around to trim the trees. We'd have coconuts galore for months! I also recall how a machete was required to cut through the tusks.

      I love the way you intertwined whoopie pies, squirrels, coconuts, and the origin of the name for German chocolate.

      A thoroughly entertaining, delightful, informative hub!

      Dancing Waters, maybe the squirrels find those coconuts that have weak spots and it's easier to break through the husk. Don't know but seeing is believing, I am a believer.

      Teaches, you're killing me with this one. Want. One. Now.

      As for the squirrel, well, I'm dedicating this short rap poem to your friend:

      Why you hating on the squirrel? He's just a businessman.

      He's getting his and you must do what you can!

      He's the one percent, sitting up so high,

      You can just forget about your coconut pie.

      Bom bom bomp bom bom bom bomp. :-)

      An engaging recipe hub! Your squirrel-story is cute. The directions are clear and the step-by-step photos are helpful. The video and photos of freshly-made whoopie pies look delicious! I am a huge fan of coconut-based desserts! You are a wonderful cook and no wonder that your unique recipe hubs went viral! Way to go!

      I missed this one, Dianne. I loved the story of your squirrel! ha ha. The video turned out very good-they look delicious. So, I was in a bookstore not too long ago, and saw the Whoopie Pie cookbook at the end of one group of books. Oh, I wanted to buy that and send it to you-you were the first person I thought of, lol. Thanks for the great recipe. I'll give it a try one of these weekends. :) UP/U/I/A and funny. /sharing.

      Denise, Anamika, Camgment:

      Thank you for stopping by to visit this recipe idea. It is one of my favorites when it comes to chocolate and cream. Thanks for your supportive votes and sharing with others.

      Denise, you gave me a chuckle, I think those whoopie pie cookbooks are the downfall of me! I can't resist them!

      How in he world did I miss this? No offense to you or your husband but the idea of the Pumpkin Whoopie Pies didn't do a thing for me. But German Chocolate? Oh my heavens, it sounds incredible. :)

      Thank you for the detailed instructions and for the delightful story about you coconut tree and squirrels. Have a great week. :)

      This sounds like a winner to me. When I was back in southern Maine, a friend that lived near the police station where I worked would drop me off a few every time she made her whoopie pies.

      Hey, Jackie. It is a chilly day here in Florida and this recipe would go great with a cup of coffee. Maybe that will help us through the chill and wish it were summer again. Blessings, dear lady.

      ChitrangadaSharan, my hubby would agree with your thoughts about coconut making the best desserts. Hope you are having a wonderful day.
