Happy “Chew This!” Sunday! As many of you already know, I write a food column in “The Courier-Tims” called “Chew This” that appears on the 1st and 3rd Sunday’s of each month. I LOVE it! It never gets old to me seeing my work, photos and column in actual print! It gives me a thrill each and every time. If you live in the Henry County area, please pick up a copy!

Today’s column is all about the “Chocolate Fudge Whoopie Pie”! I LOVE a good, classic, Amish style Whoopie Pie. I have been tinkering with developing a recipe for quite some time, and I think I really nailed it with this one! The addition of the instant coffee granules, really makes a difference! As does my recipe for the perfect Whoopie Pie filling! I really hope you will try this recipe, because I just know that you will be delighted!

For a peanut butter filled version use the following recipe instead of the traditional vanilla filling.
Peanut Butter Whoopi Pie Filling
1 stick unsalted butter, melted
1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup marshmallow fluff
3 cups confectioner’s sugar
4-5 tablespoons milk
Combine melted unsalted butter with the smooth peanut butter in a medium sized bowl until combined. Stir in the pure vanilla extract and marshmallow fluff. Slowly add in the confectioner’s sugar alternatively with the milk until the consistency is that of a thick spreadable ice cream.
