I made these really easy, super cute Whoopie Pies for Valentine's Day to share with all of you. I wish you could taste how delicious they are. Yum!!! These are semi homemade Whoopie Pies. I used big soft cookies from the store bakery and then fill them with the heavenly filling. There are two kinds in this batch, peanut butter cup cookies and chocolate chip cookies. I think the peanut butter cup cookie Whoopie Pies were amazing. I loved them. It was reminiscent of marshmallow fluff and peanut butter for any of you who like marshmallow fluff / peanut butter sandwiches. I thought it was absolutely delightful. The chocolate chip ones are scrumptious also. Are there enough adjectives describing these Whoopie Pies for all of you? I was trying to be creative.
I first made them at Christmas for my daughter in law's birthday. She requested them for her birthday party. I didn't have time to make the devils food cakes for the Whoopie Pies, so I bought several different kinds of soft bakery cookies from the grocery store and then filled them. She was very happy with this tasty alternative. Everyone at the party thought they were really good also.
Anyway, here is the recipe.

Whoopie Pies for Valentine's Day
12 large soft bakery cookies (any flavor you would like)
4 cups Marshmallow Fluff - 16 oz plastic tub
2 cups Crisco Baking Sticks All Vegetable Shortening, 20 Ounce
3 cups powdered sugar
3 tsp OliveNation Alcohol Free Gluten Free Vanilla Extract - Add Great Depth of Flavor in Baking and Cooking Recipes - Size of 2 oz
any type of Valentines Mini Hearts sprinkles
*Marshmallow Fluff, Crisco, Olive Nation, and Culpit are not paying me to give you my opinion. If you’d like to order any of these products, though, click the Amazon* links above (who will pay me a small commission for your purchase).
Put the marshmallow fluff, shortening, and powdered sugar in you mixer and mix using the whisk attachment until well blended.
Next add the vanilla.
Spread a several large spoonfuls on one cookie, then top with the second cookie. I used a lot of the marshmallow frosting
Then, over a plate sprinkle whatever sprinkles you have on the frosting edges. I did this way rather then rolling them in the sprinkles, because it worked better.
Finish putting the rest of the cookies together and put them on a serving plate and you are done.
The only way these would be easier would be to buy them, or maybe buy the frosting. This frosting is so good though, that you can be really proud of serving this for dessert. They look and taste like you worked really hard on them.
I hope that you enjoy these Whoopie Pies. I always love hearing from you.
Have a great week.
