peanut butter whoopie pie recipeChocolate and peanut butter. Is there really a better combination? If I really want to butter up my husband, all I need to do is whip up a peanut butter something or other. Peanut Butter Pie is usually what I use for buttering up, but I saw this recipe in Better Homes and Gardens and knew instinctively that he would love these. I was right. My husband who claims to not like desserts was found nibbling on these babies on more than one occasion.

I was in Sur la Table a few weeks ago and randomly picked up a whoopie pie pan. I had a strawberry whoopie pie at Baked in Charleston, SC and thought that it was pretty fabulous. When I walked past the display in Sur la Table the whoopie pie pan made its way home with me. The possibilities for this pan seem to be endless. I really bought it with the intention of making muffin tops. I love muffins, but I get one, rip off the top and throw away the bottom. A whoopie pie pan has the potential to solve this problem.

This Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopie Pie is more like two brownies sandwiched with the most amazing peanut butter frosting ever. This is not light. It is not easy to eat. But you will not care. You will just want another. And another. You just might dream about them at night.

  1. There is NO better combo than chocolate and peanut butter!! These whoopie pies look AMAZING! And we could eat that peanut butter filling by the spoonful! We’ve also sampled a delicious chocolate mint whoopie pie and a banana cream one too…oh but the peanut butter!

    • bakedbree says:

      Oh my, mint chocolate sounds right up my alley. The peanut butter filling is too good. It would be perfect for a simple chocolate cupcake as well.

  3. Joan says:

    I have the whoopie pans and this will be the first recipe I try! Great recipe!

  4. I had NO CLUE there was such a thing as a whoopie pie pan!! MUST FIND ASAP!!!

    That frosting sounds heavenly. Pan or no pan, I’m at least making that! As for other combos…hmm…white chocolate with a raspberry filling? or lemon with a raspberry filling? choc with nutella frosting? oh endless possibilities!!

    • bakedbree says:

      White chocolate raspberry sounds so good. That is one of my favorite combination. I can’t wait to see what you can do with a whoopie pie pan.

  5. jocey says:

    Would it work to substitute the whoopie pie pan for a muffin tin pan?

    • bakedbree says:

      I think that it would be better to just bake them on a cookie sheet. You want them to be flat like a cookie.

  6. Amy I. says:

    Oh these are gorgeous! The height/volume/fluffiness of that frosting is magical. I’ve added these to my to-do list, can’t wait to try them.

  7. kim klassen says:

    oh my heavens… i am speechless….
    when your amazing creation popped into my blackberry inbox, i just about died……

    wow… you are amazing!!

    happy friday……xxo, kim

  8. Hannah says:

    Those look delicious! I’ve never seen a whoopie pie pan before, very neat. Peanut butter and chocolate ones were the first ones I ever made. Definitely the best pair!

    • bakedbree says:

      it is hard to beat peanut butter and chocolate. The pan is great. I can think of a lot of different ways to use it too.

  9. Memoria says:

    I don’t think I’ve ever had a whoopie pie, and these look so tempting. Great photos as usual, Bree.

    I totally wish I could pull one of those off the screen!!! they look sinful!

  12. Sue says:

    Bree — my husband just loves whoopie pies and adores anything chocolate and peanut butter. I will definitly be making these for him when he gets home from his “guy” trip salmon fishing in BC. The whoopie pie pan from Sur la Table is great — got him one for Valentine’s Day — made red velvet pies that time. Thanks for sharing this!

    Hi Bree,
    I am Sanah (Mumbai, India) and I came across your blog recently and visit it every alternate day. Having quit my job in the hospitality industry recently, I am now trying my hand at baking. Your blog is a great inspiration and I should be trying out a lot of your recipes soon!!…Love the strawberry muffins and chocolate peanut butter whoopie ones!!….Shall tell you how they turned out.
    Warm Regards,
    Sanah

  14. Carol says:

    Looks like the pan makes 12 cookies halves. Is this filling recipe only enough for six cookies? Or do you make two batches of the cookie halves?

  15. Candice says:

    I just made this peanut butter frosting. Wow – new staple for, well, everything!

    Deeeeelicious! I can’t wait to use it just about everywhere a little dollop of PB is needed – which is quite a few places indeed!!

    Thanks!

    P.S. I just came across your site, and love it. keep up the great work!

  16. Tricia says:

    Hi Bree,

    I made these a couple of weeks ago. The frosting is probably the best thing I’ve ever had. I had a bunch of frosting left over and put it in the fridge. My boyfriend and I ate it over the next week by the spoonful. (He isn’t into sweets – and said it was the best thing he’s ever had!) SO GOOD!

  17. Kayley says:

    These are amazing! The frosting is like nothing I’ve ever tasted before <3 I am in love with these! Thanks so much for the recipe :)

  18. Linda Quick says:

    Made pies with PB. Made more with almond flavoring and still more with mint. Today’s birthday party will have whoopie cakes made with PB; almond flavoring and trying something different – using Kool Ade cherry flavor because I know a shy sweet 7 year old boy who loves chocolate cherry. BTW took the first try of leftover PB creme and put it in an Oreo pie crust and took it to work. That was a big hit. Thanks for the recipe.

  19. Patty says:

    Thank you for the recipe. I love the peanut butter frosting. I took the easy way and used devil’s food cake mix to make whoopie pies. They were a big hit in my office.

  20. […] this recipe from two different places. The chocolate chip “cookie” part is from Baked Bree. The peanut butter filling was adapted from The […]

    My girlfriend is in school in England for a year, so I have a year to teach myself how to bake for her before she comes back. I stumbled across this recipe, and as of tonight, it is the first thing I have ever baked. One large mess later, I might be using your peanut butter frosting recipe for everything I bake from now on. I’m definitely a salty-over-sweets person, but these are so good I had to wrap them up for my coworkers tomorrow before I eat any more of them (two whoopie pies at midnight is my limit). I am tempted to go a little crazy and try making a hazelnut puree and using Frangelico to make a chocolate and hazelnut versions of these.

    After my son became deathly allergic to peanuts, we started trying all kinds of other nut butters–peanut-free of course! Almond, cashew and pistachio would work. Even sunbutter has more flavor than pb–believe it or not. Probably why peanuts are so much cheaper than treenuts/seeds? I was almost ready to run down and start whipping this together without our pb subs., (cashew or pistachio would be amazing) but marshmallow cream? We have vegan marshmallows but I don’t know how to get a creamy texture out of them. Wonder if they make a vegan marshmallow cream? Any way to substitute that? Melt the marshmallows down? They are the same just derived from vegetable sources instead of animals AND they are processed in a peanut-free facility unlike most of these other ingredients. Score. So close– I wonder if coconut milk and regular whipped cream would work as a sub for marshmallow cream. Coconut milk is magic. Ideas?

  23. Lisa says:

    Am I crazy, or is there no measurement for salt?

  24. […] I poured the berry-yogurt concoction into my star molds.  I really have to stop going into Sur la Table.  I always walk out with a new kitchen treat. […]
