Hot Chocolate Whoopie Pies

These whoopie pie sandwiches are a bit of work, but totally worth it.


  • 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

  • 1 cup hot chocolate mix

  • 1 tsp baking soda

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1/4 cup milk

  • 1 tsp vanilla

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature

  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp icing sugar

  • 3/4 cup marshmallow fluff

  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, hot chocolate mix, cinnamon and baking soda. In large bowl, beat butter until smooth, then beat in sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs, then milk and vanilla. Add flour mixture, stirring until just combined. Dough will be moist and sticky.

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Drop heaping teaspoons of dough onto prepared sheets, spaced 1 in. apart. Bake until puffy and set around the edges, about 10 min. Cool on sheet 2 min, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

  • For the filling, beat butter until smooth, then beat in icing sugar. Beat in marshmallow fluff and vanilla until evenly mixed. Spread 1 tsp filling on flat sides of half the cookies, then top with remaining cookies. Serve the same day they’re made.

Make-ahead tip

Freeze unfilled cookies. Defrost and fill the day you wish to serve them.
