S'mores Whoopie Pies

normally i'd be all, "blah blah blah...::something witty::....etc etc...::BAM::.." but these things are so good that i'll skip all that.

S'mores Whoopie Pies (via Cookies&Cups)
You Need:
1/2 cup butter, room temp
1 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 cup graham cracker crumbs (do it yourself or buy the Nabisco box)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup  + 2 tblsp milk
1 tsp basking soda
1 tsp vinegar
2 tsp vanilla
6 (full sized, 1.55 oz) Hershey Bars

Marshmallow Buttercream (see recipe below)

Directions: Pre heat oven to 375 & line baking sheets with parchment paper or Silpat.
Combine the graham cracker crumbs, flour & baking powder in a bowl & set aside.
In a small bowl stir together the milk, vanilla, baking soda & vinegar. Set aside.
In the bowl of your stand mixer beat together the butter & brown sugar for 2-3 minutes on medium speed. Add the eggs & beat until incorporated.
Turn the speed down to low & slowly add in the flour & milk mixtures. Turn the mixer up to medium speed & beat for an addtl 1 minute.
Using a small cookie scoop, drop the mixture, 2 inches apart, by heaping tblsp onto the baking sheets. 
Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let the pies cool on the baking sheets for 2-3 minutes & then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Once all your pies are baked, melt the Hershey bars in the microwave at 30 second intervals. Stir & zap, stir & zap until the chocolate is melted.
Line up your pies & flip 1/2 of them over. Spoon a tblsp sized portion onto each pie & spread to the edge.

Then fill a piping bag with the prepared Marshmallow Buttercream, flip over the other 1/2 of your pies & pipe on the frosting.


 it'll look pretty awesome:


Top your frosting side with the chocolate side & then flip back over (i know,  know- what for? it just worked)

store those bad boys in an airtight container for up to 5 days....JK JK! yeah right! just EAT THEM RIGHT NOW!
but seriously- you can store them or even put them in the fridge. it was hot in my house so i popped them in the fridge overnight & took them out the next morning a few hours before i served them.

people raved & asked for my hand in marriage.
