S’mores Whoopie Pies are 2 favorite sweet treats in one! It’s a graham soft cookie, filled with Marshmallow Buttercream and topped with melted chocolate. You will LOVE these!
I am a huge fan of turning pretty much every dessert into a S’mores version. I feel like I was born to do that actually, because my birthday is August 10th…
What does that mean?
Well, August 10th is NATIONAL S’MORES DAY!
So yeah. I’ve made S’mores Brownies, S’mores Cheesecake, S’mores in a Jar, S’mores Strawberries, Chocolate Chip Cookie Peanut Butter S’mores Bars…I could keep going and going…OR you could check out my S’mores Recipe Round Up.
Here’s what you do…
Crush some graham crackers up into a fine dust. You can use a rolling pin to smash them, or a blender or food processor.
You’ll need a cup and a half, which is about 9 full crackers smushed.
Mix up your batter.
It will look like this…
Drop the batter by the tablespoon onto a lined baking sheet.
They will look like this when they are all baked up…
Next you have to make them happen. Flip half of them over…
Then melt up your milk chocolate bars and give one side of your sandwich a schmear.
Don’t neglect the other side. Cover him with some marshmallow buttercream.
That’s it! Squish those two lovebirds together and you’ll get this…
Isn’t she gorgeous?
