Do I have a cookie recipe for you guys today? These little whoopie pies have quickly moved into my top favorite list. Who knew that a brownie mix could turn into these cute chewy cookies? I love to make cake mix cookies like these Butterfinger Whoopie Pies. So, I decided to sub in a brownie mix and see what would happen.
At first I was disappointed that the cookies flattened out after coming out of the oven. I had big puffy sandwich cookie visions, and flat cookies were not part of that vision.
So I made another batch of cookies, this time using a chocolate cake mix. Turns out, you really shouldn't bake things when you are in a hurry. I messed up by forgetting some cream cheese, so those cookies turned out crumbly. It was either use the brownie cookies or take no cookies at all to the dinner we were going to in less than an hour.
I went ahead and made up the Reese's White Chocolate Butter Cream because...well, because it has Reese's in it. And you guys know how much I love my Reese's. One bite and I almost went and hid in the closet with the bowl of frosting. Brownie cookies can be eaten plain right? This frosting...oh my word!!! I am drooling thinking about it again.
Turns out this frosting was made for thin, chewy brownie cookies. Here I could have saved 40 minutes by just sticking to my original plan. It's a good thing cake mixes are not that expensive.
Make sure you don’t miss any of the crazy baking

Ya gotta love when the mistake turns out even better than the original idea! That buttercream sounds so unreal 🙂
One bite of these and I was in love with this baking "mistake". The frosting seriously was so crazy good!!!
I want to lick that buttercream. For real. It sounds divine!
I may have finished off the rest of the frosting with a spoon 🙂

Haha! I laugh so hard/get so annoyed when I bake in a rush and screw up. A few weeks ago I made chocolate cupcakes and forgot all the eggs- the recipe called for 3, needless to say a huge waste! These do look perfect, the chewy cookie and the creamy dreamy white chocolate frosting sounds like I could drink that up!!!
I get so frustrated when I mess up too. But I love it when I can salvage something and it tastes amazing!!!
I am always baking and cooking in a hurry. I consider mistakes an artful change in recipe design. This one looks and sounds like it really worked out. I want one right now!
An artful change in a recipe...I love it!!!
Jennifer @ Not Your Momma's Cookie
Everything is better with Reese's! I think the chocolate cookies look perfect 🙂
I love the way you think! Right now I am all about adding Reese's to everything 🙂

Meghan @ The Tasty Fork
Shut the front door. That's all I have to say....AND I really really really want these brownie whoopie pies! Stat!
Definitely make these right away...you won't regret moving these to the top of the "to bake" list!!!!
What's not to love?? That buttercream looks incredible!
Thanks Mercedes!!! The frosting was pretty insane...in a good way!!!
Um... that filling is killer!!! Wow, I could really put a big dent in these. They look awesome!!! Amazing!
I'm thinking I will just make the frosting next time and go at it with a spoon 🙂
Faith @ Pixie Dust Kitchen
A Disney chef once told me that all of the best recipes come out of mistakes, and I always try to keep that in mind when things don't come out the way I envisioned. These cookie whoopie pies sound amazing!
I need to keep an open mind for all those "mistakes" then! I'm really glad I went back and put the frosting in these...they really were awesome!!!
Nicole @ Young, Broke and Hungry
Oh my stars! That butter cream sounds heavenly.
Girl, you have to make some to know just how heavenly it really is 🙂 Trust me!!!
Just hand me the buttercream and a spoon!
That's the best way to eat this frosting 🙂
Sounds crazy good!
Dorothy @ Crazy for Crust
I hate recipe disasters, but I like when they turn out like this!! Brownies + Reese's + Frosting = Wonderful!
Megan @ The Pink Flour
Oh my...these look deadly, Jocelyn! I think I could probably eat the whole batch in one sitting!
That is a real danger with these cookies!!!
Jos, did you know that reeses® peanut butter cups now come in a special edition white chocolate version?
I have seen the white chocolate and have eaten my fair share too 🙂
On my these look heavenly and that Reese's Butter Cream makes want to head to the store right now!
Do it, do it, do it!!! You can thank me later 😉

I could do a number on the filling - In fact, I don't think there would be any left for the whoopie pies!
I ate quite a few spoonfuls of this frosting by itself...it's quite dangerous 🙂
Aimee @ ShugarySweets
Oh girl these sound amazing. Frosting makes everything better, and Reese's? Seriously, you need to be on their payroll 🙂
Now if only Reese's would think like you 🙂
Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie
I think I could eat that filling alone.
I had a few spoonfuls left...and I ate it all by itself. It's seriously the yummiest!!!
Hello, i made the Reese's brownies on 5/29/16. They are easy to make. people were eating them but not making a mad dash for them
However, I felt the filling was very very sweet.
1 1/4 cup of sugar IMO was toooo much, since ALL the components are sweet in nature. I think 3/4 cup would be sufficient sugar. The baking of the brownie is truly about 7-8 min(NOT ANY LONGER), since they cook up fast and harden as they cool, i had to put them in a Tupperware to make soften(they did a little bit).
I couldn't find the white chocolate baking squares so i used 1/2 cup white choc chips.
It is a good/EASY recipe with a adjustments on the sugar, i will make again.
