Chocolate-Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies

I made these today and everyone loved them! I got the recipe from Better Homes and Garden.


12-oz. pkg. miniature semisweet chocolate pieces

2 Tbsp. milk

3/4 cup butter, softened

1/4 cup creamy peanut butter

1-1/2 cups granulated sugar

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. baking powder

2 eggs

1/2 cup milk

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 recipe Filling


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Set aside 1/4 cup chocolate pieces to sprinkle on cookies. In microwave-safe bowl combine 1 cup of the chocolate pieces and 2 tablespoons milk. Microwave on 50 percent power (medium) 1 minute or until melted; stir once. Set aside.

2. In bowl beat butter and peanut butter with electric mixer until combine. Add sugar, soda, baking powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt; beat to combine. Add eggs, 1/2 cup milk, vanilla, and melted chocolate; beat until combined. Beat in cocoa powder and flour until combined. Stir in remaining chocolate pieces. Drop by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. Sprinkle with reserved chocolate. Bake 9 minutes or until tops are set. Cool on sheets 1 minute. Transfer to wire racks; cool completely. To assemble, spread flat sides of half the cookies with Filling; top with remaining cookies.

3. Filling: In bowl beat 1 cup softened butter, 1 cup creamy peanut butter, 1 cup marshmallow creme, and 2 cups powdered sugar with electric mixer until combined. If needed, beat in 2 tablespoons milk until spreading consistency. Makes 30 servings.

There are some p-nut butter sandwich cookies on "Our Best Bites" that I keep making and Mike always says they need some chocolate in them - so these sound perfect! I'll have to try them!

They were VERY good - but mine turned out dark brown, not light brown like the picture. They were still delicious!
