For the Cakes:

  • 1 cup + 2 Tbs all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1/2 cup butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs

For the Marshmallow Buttercream:

  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 cup marshmallow fluff
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla

For the Chocolate Ganache:

  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 14-ounce bag chocolate chips
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Preparation: Preheat oven to 375°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Make the Cake Mix: Combine graham cracker crumbs, flour, and baking powder in a bowl. In another bowl, mix milk, vanilla, baking soda, and vinegar.
  3. Cream Butter and Sugar: In a stand mixer, cream butter and brown sugar for 2 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each.
  4. Combine Mixtures: Alternately add dry ingredients and milk mixture to the creamed mixture, mixing until just combined.
  5. Shape and Bake: Transfer batter to a gallon-sized zip-top bag, snip the corner, and pipe 2-inch circles onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Let sit on the pan for 1-2 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
  6. Prepare Fillings: Whip together buttercream ingredients and chill. For ganache, heat cream and stir in chocolate chips and salt until smooth.
  7. Assemble: Spread ganache and buttercream between two cookies to form pies.

A: Yes, the marshmallow buttercream can be made up to two days in advance and stored in the refrigerator. Let it come to room temperature for easier spreading.

Q: What if I don’t have a stand mixer?
A: A hand mixer or even vigorous whisking by hand can work, though it might require more effort and time to get the right consistency.

Q: Can I freeze these whoopie pies?
A: Absolutely! Assemble the whoopie pies and wrap them individually. They can be frozen for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator before serving.
