It’s kind of funny because, for the longest time, I’ve wanted to try a good whoopie pie. They aren’t really the most exciting treat in the world. I just wanted to try one for myself. Problem is, they don’t usually sell them in stores, and the store-bought mix I once tried, specifically made for whoopie pies, mind you, didn’t turn out very good. I can’t remember why. I just didn’t like it. Recently, a day came when I said enough was enough. I was going to eat a whoopie pie, and there was nothing anyone could do to stop me.
Throwing caution to the wind, I…bought some devil’s food cake mix. The last recipe I tried was no good, so why not start with something I know I’ll like. After that, I found that the innards could be made with marshmallow cream and vanilla frosting, with the ratio being just a tad more marshmallow cream than frosting. I bought two jars of marshmallow cream (you can never have too much marshmallow cream) and one jar of rainbow chip frosting for added fun. I don’t know what the chips are, but nothing with rainbow in the name can possibly be bad.
Once home, I mixed the cake batter together and placed round scoops of it onto pans and got cooking. Problem was, some small bit of…something from the tortilla casserole from yesterday’s dinner (it’s delicious, you have to try it!) had apparently gotten free in the oven, and as the whoopie pies cooked, the food burned and made a lot of smoke. There was nothing I could do at that point but keep going. When I got the first batch out of the oven, they tasted like smoke. Yuck. It’s just not meant to be, is it?
Luckily, I had just enough batter left for two more whoopie pie-halves. By now, the smoke was gone, and these last ones came out of the oven. I added my frosting and marshmallow concoction and gave it a nibble…and it was delicious! At long last, I finally made a tasty whoopie pie, and if it weren’t for my oven troubles, the entire batch could have been quite special. Now if any of you want to try this treat, you know a super easy recipe. You don’t need any fancy recipes online or special baking mix. Just cake mix, frosting, and marshmallow cream. Just remember not to burn yesterday’s dinner into your oven like I did.
