Whoopie pies are something I discovered in the last 5 years or so. Wasn’t really familiar with them until I visited an Amish bakery where they are gloriously laid out and almost impossible to pass up! Here I put together a collection of my personal favorites ranging in all colors and flavors.
After trying the traditional chocolate whoopie loaded with a marshmallow filling, I was instantly hooked. Oh mercy, they were so good and just had to learn how to make them.
Gratefully, I was able to get my hands on a Amish cookbook where I found some recipes to experiment with!
Over the course of years, I have developed some favorites that my family, friends, and myself have come to really love. Admittingly, the chocolate whoopie by far, ranks #1.
NOTE: All the chocolate versions use the same chocolate cake recipe!
Chocolate Raspberry and Chocolate Coconut
First up is the chocolate raspberry and chocolate coconut. One chocolate cake envelopes a dreamy raspberry and coconut filling. They are so divine and super simple to make. Check out the recipe here. I haven’t decided which one of these is my favorite?…..
Love the contrasting brown and pink on the raspberry version. Coconut gives some great texture both crunchy and chewy.
German Chocolate Whoopies
Second, this creation was inspired by one of my favorite cakes: German Chocolate! Oh, how I love this cake. The filling is so scrumptious and rich, loaded with texture of the coconut.
The German Chocolate version satisfies both your chocolate craving and ooey gooey, chewy goodness!
Spiced Whoopie Pies
Fall definitely needs a whoopie pie flavor so I developed this one after one of my favorite spiced cupcakes. Lightly sprinkled with fall spices these whoopie pies satisfies your craving for something fall and goes perfect with apple cider!
Super simple recipe and I hope you try this one in the fall and share with all your family and friends.
Birthdays definitely need a whoopie pie! These are fun as they are colored with multi-colored sprinkles and filled with a vanilla buttercream for a bright and cheery version of a delicious sandwich cake. You can get the recipe here.
These make perfect gifts and area fun alternative to cupcakes!!
Strawberry Shortcake is one of those desserts that totally remind me of summer. With that, this whoopie pie celebrates this dessert with a creamy filling surrounding strawberry jam and sprinkled with a vanilla wafer crumb topping to boot.
Mothers Day/Spring Whoopie Pies
Spring… is the inspiration for these pastel colorful yummies, as well as, my mom. Multi colored pies decorated with a crumb topping and sprinkles sandwiched with a vanilla filling makes these guys fun for everyone, including mom! Oh, there is also a delicious blueberry filling inside….
The batter is easily colored and the pastry bag does the work for you in marbling the colors. Learn how to make them here.
Oh my goodness, this one is absolutely heavenly!!! These Brooklyn Blackout whoopies are to die for. Replicated after the classic Brooklyn Blackout Cake, filled with chocolate filling and sprinkled with cake crumbs. Totally a chocolate lover’s trifecta dream come true!
Finally, a super colorful and totally fun whoopie pie is the Mardi Gras version. It’s an explosion of colors both inside and out. But mostly, love the glitter topping that just showcases celebration!
I hope you try each one of these version and let me know which one you like the most! Currently, I’m always thinking up creative ways for new versions and stay tuned as a few fun ones are coming for fall!
