Chocolate and Mint Whoopie Pies


For the cookies:

  • Position oven rack to middle level and preheat oven to 180* C (350* F) Fan.
  • Line 5 very large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Beat the margarine and sugar in a mixer on high speed, using the whisk attachment. Beat for 4-5 minutes until light and fluffy. Add the 2 egg yolks, waiting for the first one to become completely incorporated before adding the next one. Then add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
  •  Sift the cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder and flour into a large bowl.
  • Add 3 tablespoons of the flour mixture and all of the milk to the mixer. Beat until completely combined. It might seem like the mixture curdles, but don’t worry about this.
  • Add another 3 tablespoons and continue beating. Continue adding the flour mixture in batches so that the butter can completely dissolve and not form any lumps. When all of the flour has been added and the mixture is smooth, remove the mixing bowl and continue by mixing with a spatula.
  • Put the dough in a piping bag. Pipe round circles of dough allowing about 7 cm of space between one other. (Each pan should hold about 6 cookies.)
  • Place one baking sheet in the oven at a time. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the cookies rise slightly and spread out but they should be soft.
  • Allow them to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes after baking. Then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Repeat the same process for the remaining dough, until all 5 baking sheets have been filled with the dough and baked into cookies.

For the filling:

  • Combine the chocolate and heavy cream in a small bowl. Cover with plastic wrap. Heat bowl in microwave, set at 800 watts for 1 minute. Remove from microwave and stir until the chocolate is smooth.
  • In a mixer’s bowl, add the butter, icing sugar, mint extract, vanilla and food coloring. Beat until a homogenous mixture is formed.

To assemble:

  • Fill a piping bag with the ganache and set aside until it cools.
  • Fill a second piping bag with the mint filling.
  • Pipe the mint filling on half of the cookies.
  • Pipe the chocolate ganache onto the remaining cookies.
  • Join the cookies together so that the chocolate ganache touches the mint filling, for  whoopie pies with double filling!
