Chocolate Coconut Cream Whoopie Pie Recipe

Monday, June 4, 2012

These just remind me of my childhood. Delicious semi homemade chocolate soft cookies with a fluffy marshmallow cream middle. Originally these were made in New England and around Amish Country. I adapted them with my favorite garnish using coconut and using a cake mix for the cookies.
I came across this recipe and wow, I stopped dead in my tracks, easy, using a cake mix, chocolate cookies and cream in the center? What more can you ask for... so I said I just have to make time for these beauties! Check out the original post from Amanda here

With a few things adapted to our taste, I decided to add coconut to the recipe..  Thanks Amanda we just loved these~

Chocolate Coconut Cream Whoopie Pies Adapted

1 box Devil’s Food cake mix
3 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup water

 Preheat oven to 400°.  With an electric mixer, mix together all of the ingredients until blended.
 With a medium cookie scoop (or tablespoon) drop batter onto parchment lined baking sheets at least 2 inches apart.  Bake for 8 minutes or until tops are firm when touched.  Cool on wire racks.

Marshmallow Coconut Cream Filling:

6 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons marshmallow fluff

Beat together ingredients.  Spread onto cooled flat surface of one cake piece and top with another.


  1. These cookies are mouthwatering. I love chocolate-coconut combination. Bye, have a great week

  2. Whoopie pies from a cake mix? I must have been under a rock. What a quick idea!

    Love the coconut filling.

  3. These sound delicious! Best of all they are simple to make.

  4. For some reason, I thought that you could not use a cake mix for whoopie pies! Well it looks like you squashed that myth and did it in a delicious way. I am game for anything that has these two flavors in it and these are a handy way to enjoy them-grab and go-yum!

  5. I love how you cut down on time with that devil's cake mix - very clever and smart. And then that chocolate with the coconut creams says "make me, you will like!"
