Chocolate Covered Cherry Whoopie Pies
These Chocolate Covered Cherry Whoopie Pies twist the classic confection in a new way.
I love chocolate, I love cherries… so I have to change that image (Besides, wearing mules and a satin robe around the house would cause the kids to collapse in gales of hysterical laughter.)
And in all honesty.. those candies are kind of yucky.
HOWEVER… Chocolate Covered Cherry WHoopie Pies ARE YUM!!
The cookie is a rich dark chocolate, sandwiching a light chocolate buttercream. The kicker…. a bit of cherry pie filling in the center. ummmmmm
Now… if you are making these for adults, you can add a soak of Kirsch Liquor…. (for adults only…. don’t go thinking it might make the little darlings sleepy! first of all… it’s just wrong, second of all…. the sugar will hype them up and counteract the effects)
These might be a tad messier than other whoopie pies…. the filling googes out the sides (it’s sooo good though, just lick the edges like an ice cream sandwich). You can still easily pack them into lunch boxes or take them along to potlucks or picnics, just slip them into cupcake wrappers.
Make a batch…. watch them vanish… but save one for yourself so you have something to nibble while watching cooking shows on TV.
I’ve written up the recipe for all the components here… and illustrated with step-by-step photos below. You can’t go wrong.

Whoopie Pie Carriers
Packing up your Chocolate Covered Cherry Whoopie Pies to go? First put them into cupcake liners… then carry them in one of these cupcake carriers.
They will arrive looking as perfect as they did in your kitchen. I prefer a squared off carrier with deep holders, but the round one makes a great display as well as a good carrier.
