Let's make some whoopie!

Here's an interesting recipe for Whoopie Pies.

1 box of chocolate cake mix
3 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups vanilla frosting
1 1/4 cups whipped topping, thawed

1) Heat oven to 350 degrees. Coat 4 baking sheets with nonstick cooking spray and set aside.
2) In a large bowl, combine cake mix, eggs, oil, and cocoa powder. Beat on low for 30 seconds or until combined. Beat on medium speek for 2 more minutes; batter will be very thick. Drop batter by level tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets, 2 inches apart, for a total of 40 cookies. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, rotating baking sheets halfway through. Use a metal spatula to quickly transfer cookies to racks and allow to cool.
3) Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together vanilla frosting adn whipped topping. Spread a heaping tablespoon of frosting mixture onto flat side of one cooled cookie, then place the flat side of the second cookie on top. Repeat.

Viola! We have desert to go with our chicken.
