  1. Sounds divine! I’ll be making whoopie pie “burgers” for my daughter’s play intermission, so if I wanted to make the filling chocolate (more “meaty” looking), can I add cocoa to the filling mix? Thanks! ^.^

  3. You can add any flavor to the filling. I just made cream cheese chocolate chip to go with red velvet whoopie pies.
    I have a problem – mine dont cook in the middle of the bun – what am I doing wrong? does anyone know?
