S’mores Whoopie Pies

funsweets

I don’t presume to think that everyone who comes to visit me here on my internet space actually READS what I write.

I am sure the majority of people don’t, actually.

A quick glance at the sugary treats and they are on to more important web-business like facebooking and pinteresting and twittering.

Yep, that was totally a shameless plug for all my social media hang-outs.  Sorry.

 

So anyway, I decided to do an experiment.

Because without coming across as too bratty, I can mostly tell when you leave comments here and you haven’t read what I wrote.

Which is cool.   I mean, I know you guys all have lives that go beyond me.  I cry a little at the thought, but I know it to be true.

 

But sometimes you guys make it so obvious.

While, I am NOT a secret agent who has Inspector Gadget-type spy stuff…I use pretty a simple process of elimination-style investigative tricks.

For example, I am certain you must not have read my post if you leave a comment asking me where I bought a particular item that I have linked to 40 times in said post.

Just a guess.

Another tactic of mine to catch the non-readers is when I  write stories that are really ridiculous.  I mean, remember that time I wrestled an electric eel, who bit me and made me glow?  So now I power my house with my finger.  It’s pretty awesome…a totally earth-friendly way to save electricity.

The reason I know you didn’t read that is because you don’t even mention it in your comment.  I get that the sugary treats are distracting, but seriously, I am now ELECTRIC.  That’s definitely comment-worthy.

Ok, fine.  I’m kidding, that didn’t happen.  I’m not electric.  Honestly I try not to go in the ocean at all.  It’s filled with crittery-critters who basically live life proving the idiom, “don’t poop where you eat”, wrong.  And since mixing poop with pleasure is against my religion, that explains my aversion to the ocean.

Anywayyyy…

Don’t get me wrong I love your comments and wish more people would write them.

Alls I’m saying is that maybe if you’re going to take the time to write me a love note, make it a cool love note.  Don’t be scared to tell me what you’re thinking.  I mean, unless it’s really mean.  Because that wouldn’t be very nice.

True story, just yesterday I had someone leave me a comment telling me that I could graze their boob.  That really happened.  Read the comments on this post.  I’m not necessarily asking you to leave me suggestive commentary, but I felt the love on that one.

 

I really hope that didn’t come off as bratty.

Really you can do whatever… read, don’t read, whatever works for you, because honestly, I’m just glad you’re here :)

 

And to show you my love I am totally going to give you a sandwich cookie that will rock your world.

It’s a S’mores Whoopie Pie.

Which again, I SO didn’t invent.  This whole s’mores week has been a lesson in my mediocrity.  There are some smart people in the world and google tells me so on a daily basis.

S’mores Whoopie Pies.

Here’s what you do…

Crush some graham crackers up into a fine dust.
Photobucket

You’ll need a cup and a half, which is about 9 full crackers smushed.
Photobucket
Mix up your batter.
It will look like this…
Photobucket

Drop the batter by the tablespoon onto a lined baking sheet.
Photobucket

They will look like this when they are all baked up…
Photobucket

Next you have to make them happen. Flip half of them over…
Photobucket
Then melt up your milk chocolate bars and give one side of your sandwich a schmear.
Photobucket
Don’t neglect the other side. Cover him with some marshmallow buttercream.
Photobucket

That’s it! Squish those two lovebirds together and you’ll get this…

Isn’t she gorgeous?

I was feeling bratty back to the point where I was just going to post “ooh, these look delicious” or something else inane, but such an obvious troll could be just as easily mistaken for another skimmer. Which I am not!

I love your blog! You have the best recipes and I am totally living through your S’Mores recipes this week as I am on a diet and not allowed anything ooey, gooey, and delicious like your recipes look. But you better believe that I pinned them, started following you on Pinterest (I already follow you by reader), and will be making at least one of the recipes next week when I can have sugar again. Also I think it is pretty cool how you can power your whole house with your finger. :)

I always read what you write! I don’t actually have much time for baking and experimenting and such, so most of the entertainment is reading your witty little musing. They’re almost always a hoot and a half.

Kill me now with these! Eels kind of freak me out and have ever since I had a nightmare about them. Whenever I mention to people that I hate eels they think it’s because of The Princess Bride, but it’s not. It’s because of a dream (which, by the way, the odds of me actually remembering my dreams are about 1 in a million, cause I couldn’t tell you the last dream I remember).

I love smores and I love that you made them, whoopie pie style. Those little whoopie cookies almost look like Nilla wafers. They look heavenly!

I commented on yesterday’s post asking where you got the liners EVEN THOUGH I ALWAYS READ THE WHOLE THING!! and then i read today’s post, about how people ask you where you buy things when there are links, so I went back and looked at yesterday’s because i was SURE there was no way you linked to them and I missed it and……there it is. The link. Right before the recipe. Sigh. :)

I come here because of your recipes I will often leave a short comment. I didn’t think it was right to just open your post and pin it without saying something!

You’re electric – – COOL 😉 lol. I never thought about the under water swimming where the fishy’s poop – – that makes me question swimming :S. I’ll have to stay on the sand and eat all the picnic goodies.

Can we talk about these whoopie pies – – YUUUUMMM!!

Hahaha, this was a great post – not too bratty, but just enough! 😉 It’s okay to vent a little sometimes, after all – it’s your blog! I definitely understand where you’re coming from, though I’m guilty of not always reading posts myself. I don’t however, not read posts, but then comment on them. I tend to be a lurker – following tons of blogs and posts and commenting rarely. But here I am… trying new things. We’ll see if I can keep it up, because I do like the opportunity to take a moment to say: These whoopie pies… Read more »

I have been drooling over these since you posted a picture on instagram the other day. I think I must make them… As for reading your posts. I can’t visit you without reading. Your writing is what snagged me in the first place. The first post of yours I ever read was the one with “Sherry” and I think it was a Reese’s recipe. I damn near peed my pants I was laughing so hard. Anyway, I was hooked. Keep writing and I’ll keep reading!

Now, I may be new to posting comments on here, but I do follow your blog. And I don’t bake/cook/use any utensils in the kitchen. Therefore, I read for your wittiness and wonderful posts. I also read for your pictures that make me drool and super cool ideas. However, looking back to the smore’s cupcakes, I noticed that 23 out of 47 of your posts was actually about the story you wrote (boob grazing anyone?). So, HALF of your comments are about your stories. So, I don’t think people are only going on your website just to skim that stuff… Read more »

i always (well mostly) read your posts! ….but your pictures are SO GOOD that sometimes i am not patient enough to read anything else, ’till i see how you’ve created that latest bit o’ sugar magic!!! …kinda like skipping dinner and diving right into the dessert…..do you blame me? well, thanks for your awesome sweets….and for making me laugh once in a while…..you print what i think and it makes me feel a little less bratty, myself. 😉

Guest

Sometimes the imaginary sugar high from your photos clogs my vision and all I can see are sugar plums dancing in my head and I suddenly think, “santa is that you???” Hey if you’re electric you may also be santa.

Any who….the whoopie pies look amazing! Of course!

I for one love your posts, and I bought a whoopie pan last year, so I am going to try these wonderfully delicious whoopie pies. Now you made me hungry to try these. And to try out my new pan again, I only used it one time, and now I am going for 2x’s, thank you for the post on this flavor of whoopi pies. Love it…

Eels freak me out and I avoid going into any body of water where there are things that might want to bite me. I cringe whenever I watch The Princess Bride and she gets brushed in the water by the shreaking eels.

I’m so making these for our office afternoon treat cart.

April 25, 2012 5:15 pm

You are one of the few blogs I don’t skim, but actually read through. cause you are just hi-fricken-larous

So is it horrible that when I got to the eel part I got the song “Electric slide” stuck in my head. Do do do do do do do It’s electric…

I’m probably old enough to be your mama and am out of your demographic, but I discovered you a couple of months ago and am enjoying your bog. I read your entire posts!! For real!! Example, I don’t care for S’mores because I don’t like marshmallows (kinda makes me gag with all that white fluffiness), but I read your entire post anyway. Soooo….don’t cry darlin”. You have fans who read everything.

Guest
April 25, 2012 6:05 pm

Ooh… that drives me crazy. There’s this one person who is obviously subscribed to hundreds of blogs and leaves comments on basically every new post. Very standard comments. – You were in the hospital for a week and almost died? “Those look yummy! I have to make these!” – Your puppy was run over last night? “Wow! I can’t wait to make these!” – You found out you have cancer? “Great recipe! Will try later!” I wonder if she has a file and just copies and pastes these things. Ehem. Anyway, I don’t like smores or whoopie pies but I… Read more »

I love your schmearing technique, very nice. I’m glad I made a new Pinterest board yesterday exclusively for whoopie pies, these gorgeous girls will fit right in.

Guest
April 25, 2012 6:19 pm

That cracked me up because it’s definitely the things I’m thinking without saying. I laughed my ass off at the fear of grazing the pedicurists’ boobs on your previous post by the way. I thought about it and it made me smile for hours afterwards. Just so you know :)

Guest
April 25, 2012 6:26 pm

I enjoy what you write at least as much as the dessert, if not more. Although please don’t graze my boob….And I agree about the ocean.

Guest
April 25, 2012 6:26 pm

I’m glad I’m not the only one who fears the ocean. Don’t get me wrong, I love being near it and listening to the waves…but going inside where all the THINGS are that brush up against your leg as soon as you’re not paying attention? No way.

These pies are so adorable, I’ve been loving your s’mores week!!

Guest
April 25, 2012 6:29 pm

1. Again– you’re photos are so lovely! Sometimes I can’t stop looking.

2. I’m also super impressed with the genius of this dessert.

3. I may not ever leave a comment inviting you to graze my boob, but yours is one of the few blogs that I actually do read instead of simply doing the “drool and pin.”

Love,

So funny- I love your stories & just browse your baked goods because I cant bake for shit! I wish I could- but it’s just NOT in me.

Your story is what got me to follow you the very first time I read one of your posts!
I would be disappointed if you just posted your recipe & not a story!

You make me laugh! And for a second I definitely was like “eels can’t really make you electric, can they?” I won’t lie, I was a little concerned for your well-being. God forbid you were so afflicted with your electricity, you couldn’t post tasty treats. = )

I always ALWAYS read what you write! Don’t hate me, but I’ll admit that sometimes I don’t actually read the recipes. I always go through the step-by-step, but I have an irrational fear that once I read the recipe I’m going to go “that’s too easy NOT to make” and make them and then eat them all and when I weigh 1200 pounds I’ll have to tell my doctor that it’s your fault and then you’d be in trouble. So really it’s to your benefit that I skip the recipe part. And also, I have them delivered to my inbox… Read more »

I’m a horrible follower/reader :( I love what you write, it’s hilarious and I’m not just saying that because I want you to become my personal baker! I actually think you’re one of the funniest bloggers. I’ve also pinned near everything you’ve made. I think I’m obsessed :(

OK, you’ve got me drooling on the keyboard again. This is genius and as far as I’m concerned it was YOUR idea because I saw it here first …lol.

I do read your posts. I think they’re hilarious, and I really hope you’re not going to take that lady up on her offer. It was kind of her to want to help you, but I think it might just creep you out further.

Keep the s’mores coming!
