Whoopie PIes


Whether you call them whoopie pies or gobs like we do in Pittsburgh you can’t deny they’re delicious! These bite sized chocolate cakes with rich marshmallow buttercream are so addicting!

Whoopie PIes

I’m not above buying these bad boys at my local bakery, but the homemade version is SO much better. Moist cake and creamy filling make it hard to stop at just one.



This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled. Best of all they don’t require a mixer or a whoopie pie pan!
