Whoopie Pie Wednesday: Chocolate & Peanut Butter

I would like to be able to properly explain how delicious these were but you have to eat them for yourself to understand. These were yummy to the full extent of yumminess. At least in my world and for right now, isn't that what counts? We'll go with yes;) I could eat PB all day long, I remember being younger and my mom handing me the spoon full of PB and it being the most extraordinary treat! Admittedly, I probably couldn't do that now. And to drop a bomb on you, please have some tolerance and do not completely judge a girl...I don't think I have ever finished a pb & j sandwhich. Gross. My heart belonged to the goodness known as a "fluffernutter" yes, please!

Anyways, being the lover of PB that I am, what better way to pair a chocolate cake cookie than w/peanut butter whipped cream? Exactly...nothing!!



Ingredients
1 box chocolate cake 
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil(canola or veggie)
1/4 cup milk(or water)

Filling
1 box cheesecake pudding
4-6 oz cream cheese softened
2 tbsp peanut butter(melted)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tbs heavy whipping cream
(or cool whip)

Preheat oven to 350'
Mix together dry cake mix, oil, eggs, and milk. The dough will be thick, I sometimes put in fridge for 1/2 an hour before putting on cookie sheet. I normally use a round TBSP to place on cookie sheet, but you can also use a round TSP to make them bite size and get more out of it. Bake 8-9 minutes, let cool.

For the filling
Melt PB in microwave for 5-10 seconds(watch this b/c, depending on your microwave, you could burn it and trust me, this is the opposite of goodness) Cream softened cream cheese on low for 1 minute to get fluffy, add the pudding packet, melted PB & tbs of whipping cream, beat until fully incorporated and slowly add the remaining whipping cream and beat until very stiff peaks begin to form. or for alternate version, prepare the pudding w/1 cup cold milk and mix w/cool whip. Place in fridge for hour to let either version set up. 

*notes, I think it would be good to add the mini reese's to the dough and you can add fluff to the filling. How can either addition be wrong? oh, that's right, it can't!!

and sad faced, I wrote this and tried to upload photo and for some reason, blogger hates me, hopefully fix tomorrow. What is it about whoopie pie wednesday that is always uncooperative. The nerve. humph
