Double Chocolate Whoopie Pies

My teen daughter Olivia has been in the kitchen baking again.

She took a break from her recent obsession, those utterly amazing Nutella Swirl Brownies.  She has made a half dozen times in the last few weeks.

Use the best quality cocoa powder you can find for this recipe.

Her latest triumph were these terrific whoopie pies based upon a favourite Canadian fudge sandwich cookie.   We’ve featured them before in our recipe for Homemade Fudgee-o Cookies.

These double chocolate whoopie pies are pretty easy to make. They would make a fun baking project with little kids. 

Great for after school snacks and lunchboxes too.

Double Chocolate Whoopie Pies - a.k.a. Fudgee-o Whoopie Pies - two soft, cake-y chocolate cookies filled with a creamy fudge frosting. The perfect lunchbox or after school treat.


  • 2 cups plus 2 tbsp sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1 cups sugar
  • 1/2 cup hot water
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup sour milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

For the Chocolate Fudge Filling

  • 2 1/2 cups icing sugar, powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter

  1. Sift together dry ingredients and set aside.

  3. Add milk, cocoa and hot water. Then add the dry ingredients.
  4. Scoop heaping tablespoonfuls of batter onto a greased or parchment lined cookie sheet and space at least 2" apart. Small sized ice cream or cookie dough scoop works really well too. Bake at 325 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until centers spring back when touched. Cool completely.

To prepare the Chocolate Fudge Filling

  1. Mix together the icing sugar, cocoa butter, vanilla and a couple of tablespoons of milk until smooth.
  2. Add more milk as needed to bring the frosting to a thick but smooth and spreadable consistency.
  3. Spoon between two of the whoopie pie sections and press together slightly.

Thanks Claudette. Any guilt trips would be pretty hypocritical of me! LOL!
