German Chocolate Whoopie Pies

Let me introduce myself, I am Wanda Ann from Memories by the Mile and I’m so thrilled to be Dana’s new contributor. I will be sharing my recipes on the first Monday of every month and look forward to getting to know all you. My husband and I do a lot of traveling, for work and play. So I started Memories by the Mile a year and half ago to share our travels and my love for cooking, baking, and EATING! I’d love for you to come visit my corner of the world.

German Chocolate Whoopie Pies, the perfect cute sweet treat for Valentine's Day!

With Valentine’s Day in a couple of weeks, I wanted to share these fun German Chocolate Whoopie Pies. So let’s get started.

German Chocolate Whoopie Pies, the perfect cute sweet treat for Valentine's Day!

German Chocolate Whoopie Pies
 
 
Ingredients
  • 1- 4 oz. German Chocolate Bar
  • ¾ cup butter
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • Coconut Pecan Frosting:
  • 6 oz. evaporated milk
  • ⅔ cup sugar
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 egg (beaten)
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1½ cups coconut
  • ½ cup sliced pecan
Instructions
  1. Heat chocolate and butter in microwave until melted. Add sugar and stir till blended. Add eggs one at a time and mix well, then blend in vanilla. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Then add remaining flour and buttermilk alternating until mixed well. Spoon into heart whoopie pan. Bake in 350* for 15 to 20 minutes until toothpick comes clean.
  2. Let cool on wire rack..
  3. Coconut Pecan Frosting:
  4. Combine first ingredients and cook, stirring over medium heat till mixture thickens about 12 to 15 minutes. Then add coconut and pecans.
  5. Spoon Coconut Pecan Frosting and top with another heart. Use a small heart cookie cutter to place on top.

My husband LOVES German Chocolate Cake, not to take away from the chocolate, but I really think it mostly about the Coconut Pecan Frosting. I always double the recipe so he can add extra to his plate, or it’s really good on ice cream too! It also makes a yummy after school treat, just spread between two graham crackers. So you might want to double the recipe for the frosting as well! 🙂
