I’m not one for mushy Valentine’s Day celebrations, but I do like a holiday as an excuse to bake!  These little whoopie pies make a lovely treat for someone special ( I shared my batch with my lovely pals at work) or if you feel like having a bunch of them to yourself that’s fine too – you’ll definitely be feeling the love!

If you’re never had a whoopie pie before then you are really missing out!  It consists of two circles of dough which are baked freeform in the oven. The texture is sort of halfway between a cookie and a cake, and both halves are sandwiched together with marshmallow frosting.  The great thing about whoopie pies is that they are really versatile.  I made mine almost bite size, but you could make them cookie size, or even giant. The flavours can be switched up too – I used strawberry marshmallow fluff to make the frosting instead of regular vanilla, but you can add peppermint essence or other fruit flavours to the frosting if you like.
