Dear Elizabeth Ann's Recipe Box readers,
Elizabeth Ann and I are at it again, doing a recipe swap for you all. Be sure to check out Elizabeth Ann's recipe over at my blog, henning love.
For you all today, I have made whoopie pies with chocolate ganache. Are your mouths watering yet? If not, then they should be after you read this recipe.
First, gather together your ingredients. 1/4 cup butter, softened, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 egg, 1 cup milk, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 3/4 cup flour, 3/4 cocoa powder. For the ganache filling, 1/2 cup heavy cream, 4 ounces chopped chocolate.
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. In your mixing bowl, cream the butter.
Add in the sugar and brown sugar. Mix these three ingredients until creamy.
Crack the egg and and add it into the sugar butter mixture and mix well.
Add in the milk, flour, vanilla extract and cocoa powder.
Turn on your mixer and until the ingredients are incorporated and the dough is smooth looking.
Drop 2 teaspoons amount of dough into your baking sheet.
Bake your whoopie dough for 12-14 minutes. Remove the pies from the oven when they are finished and place them on a baking rack to cool. Let the pies cool completely before you add in the ganache filling.
To make the ganache, put both the chocolate and heavy cream in a sauce pan and stir while the chocolate melts.
Once the ganache is smooth, remove from the heat and let it cool slightly. When the ganache has a creamy consistency, spoon some ganache on one whoopie pie and them place another whoopie pie on top to make a sandwich.
Then serve, eat and enjoy with a tall glass of ice cold milk because you will need it!
