OMG! Eating these Whoopie Pies is like being transported back in time to 1960 to your Mommy's kitchen, scraping the bowls clean, helping her put the filling inside the cookies, and getting a bellyache because you ate too many...
I made these for a impromptu party, so "whoopie" seemed appropriate. The ingredients are definitely old school - marshmallow cream, Cool Whip, instant pudding and a prepared cake mix. But, it's balanced with Philly and semi-sweet baker's chocolate, or at least that's what I rationalized. Put it all together and you have one rich, filled cookie that will have your guests begging for more. You'll be very popular.
Others complained the cream filling tears the cookies when you combine the two. This was not my experience. The cookies were cooled for about ten minutes and the filling - which I kept in the fridge and was careful not to over whip - went on smoothly. The results were perfection. I would highly recommend this treat for your chocolate loving friends, and they're perfect for a party. Refrigerate before serving. You should probably just ignore the fact Cool Whip, marshmallow cream and instant pudding are far from "natural" and fix these for a special occasion. That's what I did.
