I’ve had a hankering for chocolate cake and chocolate cookies for the last little while, but this weekend I really wanted to make something different and didn’t want to have a cake in the house to tempt me every time I passed it as I walked past. So I decided I’d make Devil’s Food Whoopie Pies instead. That decision may have just been my undoing. Do you know how many whoopie pies a person can eat before you realize you’ve eaten them?

Yeah, well, I’m not telling.

Let’s just say it is a whole lot more obvious when hunks of cake are missing than it is little whoopie pies.

So take that as a warning before you make these and are home alone. You really should make them with people around. Like, someone should be in the kitchen with you at all times. And then, you should pack them up immediately and rush them to your neighbor so you don’t eat them all.

This is golden advice, friends.

I started with the recipe from Better Homes and Gardens and then changed it a good bit here and there. And because I fiddled with the recipe, testing it with this change and then that change and then another, we were covered up in Devil’s Food Whoopie Pies around here.

It was like a dream come true. Well, with the exception of my hips. And my diet. And all that stuff that I don’t want to think about when I start baking and testing recipes like this, but really should.

Any who, these little babies are amazing and I think you need them in your life. Like now.

I just wish I could ship you a batch without the creme filling getting all gross. Because you know I would in a heartbeat.

    Yum! Fall means whoopie pies!! And I bet your family loves all the test whoopie pies along the way!

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Yes, we’ve been in whoopie pie heaven this weekend. And my freezer is definitely stocked. But now, I’ve definitely got the bug to make all sorts of them.

  6. MarshaMarshaMarsha says:

    what’s the best way to store these?

    1. Robyn Stone says:

      Hey Marsha, the best way I’ve found to store them is in a shallow airtight container in the refrigerator. If you have to stack them, then put a sheet of waxed or parchment paper in between them to prevent them from sticking together. Also, if you are making them ahead, I have flash frozen the cake portions and then stored in the freezer in a ziptop bag. Then, I allowed them to thaw in the refrigerator and then assemble. But really, they are best just gobbled up when they are freshly made. πŸ™‚
