Wednesday, when I was snowed in, I (along with my coworkers, via email) decided it was time to whip a little something up! I was totally clueless as to what I should bake next, since the Peppermint Patties might be a little hard to top. “Something with peanut butter!!” was suggested and so I went on a hunt for something that looked delicious and didn’t use a ton of peanut butter, because I’m not sure if I mentioned this: I was snowed in. (We got almost 30 inches of snow at my parents’ house in Massachusetts…eeeek!)
So I happened upon this recipe. I had all the ingredients in my house and just enough peanut butter to make them. Who doesn’t love whoopie pies? A childhood favorite of mine, there are only a few variations that I truly love (besides the original), which include pumpkin whoopie pies and red velvet whoopie pies…and now these!
Half cookie/half cake, the chocolate tops and bottoms are the perfect way to sandwich the creamy, sweet peanut butter center.
Bake, cool, assemble and enjoy with a cold glass of milk!
