Place the semi-sweet chocolate and stick of butter in the microwave safe bowl.

Microwave the chocolate and butter, stirring every 30 seconds, until it is fully melted.

Be careful the bowl will be very hot please use hot pads!

Step 3: Add Sugar, Eggs and Vanilla

Step 4: Add Dry Ingredients

Add the flour, cocoa and baking powder into the bowl.

Use the spatula to gently mix the dry ingredients into the wet. Stir just until the ingredients come together, and be careful not to over mix.

Step 5: Prepare Cookie Sheet and Scoop Batter

Prepare your cookie sheet, I suggest a silicon mat or parchment paper with a non-stick spray.

Then scoop your batter onto the tray, I used a disher scoop but a spoon would also work. You want your scoops to be approximately the same size and make sure to give them room because they will spread.


Step 6: Cook the Cookies

Once the tray is ready you can bake them for 10 minutes, or until they spring back when you gently poke them.


Step 7: Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting

Whip the cream cheese with the powdered sugar until it is a smooth mixture, you can do this by hand but its a lot easier with a mixer.

Step 8: Whip the Cream

In a separate bowl add the heavy cream and vanilla and whip it until it forms soft peaks.

Once again this could be done by hand but it would take a lot of effort...

Step 9: Combine Cream Cheese and Whipped Cream

Step 10: Make the Whoopie Pies

Turn half of your cookies upside down and scoop a dollop of the filling onto each one.

The other half of the cookies are the tops of the whoopie pies, if you would like to cut shapes out you should use a cookie cutter and gently push down on the cookie and pop out the shape.

When your tops are ready place them on top of the bottom cookies pushing down slightly so the filling squishes out to the sides.
