So, I attempted to make some strawberry shortcake fudge for Valentine's Day baskets. I was terribly upset when it refused to set up- it tasted delicious, but fudge it was not. Out of nowhere, like a beacon in the darkness, I had a Eureka moment- whoopie pies! But, I had never made them before, and surely I could never pull it off. With nothing to lose, I opted to try my hand at this recipe. These gorgeous little fluffy rounds of chocolately heaven could not have been simpler to make. I then set to the task of making my "fudge" more frosting-like. I was able to get it to a good, spreadable consistency, and filled the little whoopie pies with the strawberry yuminess. I found I had to tightly wrap them immediately in plastic wrap in order to stop them from sliding, and then they set up beautifully in the fridge. This creation is a bona fide masterpiece. It is too bad I am not likely to ever be able to recreate it (with my luck, when I go to try the fudge again it will work, since I actually won't want it to)!!!! But, no matter, for the next time I will try the filling recipe that goes with the cookies in this recipe. I can't wait. These ARE the whoopie pies (gobs) I have been eating and loving ever since I moved to Pennsylvania. They are the real deal, and everyone should make them! Today! Right now! Quit reading, and get in your kitchen! Are you still here? Go! Thanks Nancy :)
