I try to keep myself in check, I like to eat healthy and keep my family on a balanced diet. I always vary my weekly menu so we don't get bored. Once in a while I surprise them with tasty desserts that everyone loves. Why not give ourselves a day to indulge our cravings? As they say, cravings are our body telling us what it needs. At home, we love chocolate. Some of us prefer white, my eldest daughter likes milk chocolate and my husband likes dark. However, since my youngest daughter is the baby of the house, she get's to decide this time and we’re going to prepare a few delicious woopie pies with semisweet chocolate. If you don't know what woopie pies are, well they're delicious, fluffy, tasty treats made with marshmallow sandwiched between two pieces of chocolate cake. Sounds great, right? Don't feel guilty for indulging in this chocolaty dessert, once in a while isn't bad! MORE + LESS -

    Remove from the oven and let cool on a rack or on wax paper for a few minutes. Flip half of the cookies over and place half of one marshmallow on the flat surface of the cookies. Place them back on the tray and bake for 2 more minutes to melt the marshmallows a bit. Remove from the oven and cover with the rest of the cookie forming sandwiches.

  • If you want, you can give them a touch of color by adding a few drops of food coloring to the mixture.
