My little whoopies ready to go to work!
My lovely sister-in-law, Jackie, gave me a whoopie pie cookbook for Chanukah and a special whoopie pie pan that was on backorder and just arrived this week. Of course, I had to test out some of the creative recipes as soon as humanly possible. I decided on the graham cracker whoopie (in hopes to produce a s'mores whoopie pie), but unfortunately couldn't find any graham flour. I had already made the classic marshmallow filling and the whipped chocolate ganache so instead of tasting like the intended s'mores, they taste more like generic-not-overly-sweet biscuits with chocolate and marshmallow filling. Could be worse!

Yes, I probably should have picked another flavor whoopie when I realized I didn't have the key ingredient that would make them taste like their intended flavor. Yes, a tick more research before using my whoopie pie pan might have yielded prettier whoopie pies. But, I had fun, made a huge mess and Brian said he thought they tasted great. Isn't that all that really matters?
