I’m sorry to do this to you.

Especially the first week of the New Year
when so many people have resolved to eat better.

These are going to make you jump right off
any diet bandwagon that you have climbed on.
Believe me! I know…I was there.
This week we have been doing great at our healthy eating,
drinking lots of water, and exercising…
then I went and made these.
And that was even fine because they were going
with my son to his Bible study group.
Only a few got left behind for me to take pictures of.
Then I took a bite out of one (for testing purposes:-)
and all my good resolve melted away
with that delicious cookie!
Peanut butter is a weakness of mine.
I should have known this would end badly for me.
I knew I HAD to get the rest out as quickly as possible.
My jeans were counting on me to be strong.
Resist the cookies I must!!!
Good thing we pack lunches each day.
The cookies were safely tucked into lunch bags
and hidden away from the peanut butter crazed lady!
But lucky for me…there was one left to enjoy the next day…
along with a few spoonfuls of yummy frosting.
Don’t judge me:-)
You would have done it too if the extra frosting was on your counter.

Go ahead and make these.
I double dog dare you:-)

    On man, these sound and look heavenly! I’ve been wanting to make whoopie pies since I went to Portland, Oregon in Jiuy. While there I ate at a neat little coffee and tea place and had a red velvet whoopie pie. It was out of this world! I ended up buying a few to take back and share with a friend. I have since found a whoopie pie “mold” made by Wilton but from your photos it looks like this batter isn’t thin enough to pour into the mold. Would that be a correct assessment?!

    they look great, and if you think about it, there is an egg and some honey it them, so they are healthy. At least that is what I am telling myself.

    Those look great!! I have been on a bit of a whoopie pie planning craze. I have crazy whoopie pie notes all over the place. Who knows if I will ever make half of them!
    But THESE definitely need to get made!

    I made these today and the cookie part was really doughy I even cooked it longer. I don’t know what I did. But really wished these had came out:(

  11. says

    @Sam. I am so sorry they didn’t turn out!!! How sticky was your dough? It should have been really thick and easy to roll into a ball. And over baking them would make the cookie crispy:-(

    A wonderfully, delicious looking recipe, and death to any diet, including mine. Definitely making these as I too am a peanut butter AND Butterfinger fanatic. Sharing on my FB page and my blog with appropriate credit. ty!! ~~ Aunt Betty
