Peanut Butter Cup Whoopie Pies

6 Oct

 

I love to bake.  It’s no secret.  My husband, however, is not a huge fan of sweets.  And while I am more than happy to eat his share of the baked goods in the house, I thought I would offer up something a little salty as well as sweet.  One of the few treats that he does love is a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup.  They are great on ice cream or inhaled on their own. 

These Whoopie Pies were inspired by the yummy peanut butter cup candies.  The cake part of the Whoopie Pie (is it a cake or a cookie?) is chocolate.  I topped one cake with peanut butter filling and one with a chocolate ganache. 

Because these Whoopie Pies are reminiscent of a classic candy, they are perfectly sweet comfort food for the cooler days ahead!  Enjoy!
