S’mores Whoopie Pies

What’s black and white…

And smothered in gooey marshmallow fluff?

S’mores Whoopie Pies!

A few weeks ago, my first attempt at s’mores whoopie pies went terribly awry. So terribly awry that I won’t even post a photo. Let’s just say they looked more like whoopie pancakes than pies. I wanted to give the experiment another go for Sunday’s Oscars party.

If it didn’t work, I had a backup: Secret Peanut Butter Cookies.

But I really wanted it to work!

The whoopie pies were perfect to represent the black-and-white theme of The Artist. Luckily, my second try was a big, fat (literally) success. And, as it turns out, I picked a great dessert for the night; The Artist won Best Picture!

The whoopie pies definitely won Best Dressed.

And best taste.

But they are chocolate, after all. So really, it was no competition.

S’mores Whoopie Pies

(makes 12 circles)

Categorized here: Cookies and Bars.

  • 1/4 cup milk of choice
  • scant 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1/2 cup whole-wheat pastry flour (or white flour)
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • just over 1/8 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup evaporated cane juice (or white sugar)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons oil (coconut or canola/veg)
  • 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 375 F. Mix vinegar into milk, and set aside. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients and mix very well. Then put all the other liquid ingredients into the vinegar mixture and stir. Pour wet into dry, and stir to combine. Drop tiny circles (a little over the size of a silver dollar) onto 1 or 2 cookie trays. (Or, if you have a whoopie pie maker, you can use that! I don’t have one.) Bake around 8 minutes.

Marshmallow Cream:

If you don’t want to use this recipe, or if you can’t find marshmallow flavoring, you can use Ricemellow Cream or Smuckers marshmallow fluff instead. Both are vegan.)

  • 2/3 cup Mori-Nu silken-firm tofu (140 g) (I’m sure soft-silken would work too!)
  • 6 tablespoons coconut butter or raw cashew butter
  • scant 1/8th tsp salt
  • 8-10 drops marshmallow flavoring (like this one)
  • 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • sweetener to taste (stevia, agave, sugar, etc.)

Blend everything in a blender, food processor, or Magic Bullet cup. This frosting is thicker when cold, so it’s a good idea to make it up ahead of time. But don’t frost the whoopie pies until just before serving (or frost them and then store in the fridge).

**For a soy-free frosting, add the vanilla and marshmallow extracts to the following recipe (and sub the pb for coconut butter or raw cashew butter): Soy-Free Option.

And, of course, the chocolate…

I used my favorite chocolate recipe: Hot Chocolate Butter.

If you prefer, feel free to use your favorite hot fudge sauce, chocolate frosting, or melted chocolate chips. Just be sure to add chocolate in some form. This recipe (well, any recipe!) is nothing without chocolate Winking smile.

Question of the Day:

What whoopie pie flavors would you like to see?

Now that I have a successful base recipe, I’m excited to experiment with new flavors: What about red velvet, or chocolate chip cookie dough, or cinnamon roll pies…

Or maybe whoopie pies from my Pumpkin Cream Cheese Bars.

  1. Sarah the official CCK drooler-we pick Rick says

    OH MY WORD!!!!!! These look perfect for a Ladies Night i’m going to tomorrow with my friends. Will try NOW!

  2. Zestful Lou says

    Wow! So adorable. Birthday #25 is coming up shortly. Perhaps I should consider throwing a black and white party?!

    These whoopie pies would be making a cameo appearance, of course. 😉

  3. Bethany @ Bananas for Smoothies says

    Oh my goodness, Katie, you’ve done it again! I think s’mores are one of the bestest treats, ever. I love to go camping and hiking, and no trip is complete without s’mores. Now I don’t have to wait until summertime to enjoy my favorite treat!

    And thanks for the tip about the marshmallow flavoring – I’m going to look for some!

  4. Lauren (PB&G) says

    Oh wow! I didn’t know that smuckers marshmallow creme was vegan! I’d much rather make my own but I don’t know that marshmallow flavoring is in my budget right now. Thank you so much for the awesome recipe!! =)

  5. Liz @ Tip Top Shape says

    Ohh, these look divine!! Do you get annoyed when your baking experiments go wrong? I have a long standing I-cannot-bake-you-for-the-life-of-me relationship with sugar cookies and I get so upset every time it goes wrong!

    • Chocolate-Covered Katie says

      Sometimes… especially when it means I waste ingredients or a lot of time :(.
      But other times, it’s a great learning experience… or I am lucky and can even turn the recipe failure into something else! I did that with a failed cookie recipe once; it made great granola bars!

      • Morgan says

        I feel the SAME way about waffles. I love, love, love waffles and I can’t get them right for the life of me! It’s so weird! These look so yummy, Katie! I can’t wait to try them! Thanks for persevering!

  6. Anna @ The Guiltless Life says

    This is a really impressive recipe to come up with – you have to veganize the marshmallow cream, then the chocolate spread, then the whoopie pies – I don’t blame you for having one fail (though I would love to see that pic! I love fail pics sometimes, they’re like a blooper reel at the end of a movie!) but these finished products look fabulous!

  7. Amanda @ xo,Amanda says

    Hey Katie, just curious if you’ve seen any ricemallow fluff in stores anytime recently? I live in the Dallas area too and used to pick it up at Central Market, but can’t seem to find it ANYWHERE now. Just thought it was worth a shot to see if you’d seen it….

  8. Erica says

    I would like to see chocolate with peanut butter OF COURSE! Ooooh maybe a lemon filled whoppie pie….or for kids a birthday cake whoopie pie 😛

  9. DawnW says

    I’m so sorry,I screwed up! I went back to see if I could vote (I wasn’t sure if the nomination counted as my vote) and I accidentally voted for the wrong blog. Quick,somebody go and cancel out my vote! Katie,you can vote for yourself 🙂
