I Can Bake...Kind of

So while I was working the other day I saw that we were selling whoopie pie makers for only £5 so I bought one!!!
Because of this I went round to my boyfriends to make whopie pies!!! It took us about three hours to make them but  that is because we are quite simply awful at baking!!!
So here is the cheats way of making some interesting whoopie pies!!!

What you will need:

1 whoopie pie maker
100g butter
150g 70% chocolate
200g sugar
3 free range eggs
1tsp vanilla extract
30g cocoa powder
200g self raising flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

How to make them:

Melt the butter and  chocolate in a bowl over a pan of simmering water making sure the bottom or the bowl does not touch the water. Keep stirring gently so that the chocolate does not burn.

Whisk the sugar, eggs and vanilla until a you get a mixture that is thick and pale in colour.
Fold the chocolate mixture into the sugar and eggs.

Sieve in the flour, baking powder and cocoa powder and fold gently ensuring you do not over the mix the mixture.

Evenly distribute the mixture into the cases and cook for 3 minutes!!!

Pink marshmallow frosting:

What you will need:

100g softened butter
200g icing sugar
2tbsp milk
1tbsp vanilla extract
100g marshmallows
pink food colouring

How to make it:

Mix together the butter, sugar, milk and vanilla until smooth. Add the food colouring until you reach your desired shade of pink.
Gently melt the marshmallows in the microwave until they are slightly melted and start to puff up.
Add the marshmallows to the icing an mix till fully combined.
The frosting should be thick and light.

We made a little too much frosting so decorated the top with it and so pink sprinkles. I have to say although they may not have looked the best the sure were yummy!!!

As always thank you for reading
Love Hayley Beth
