I know some people are not a fan of V day, but I love any excuse to make a treat. And especially a pink treat. One of the most popular whoopie pies I have ever made was my chocolate covered strawberry ones and for this year I wanted to do a switch up.
I made these for a gathering I had with a few girlfriends this week and then the mister took the leftovers with him to work. When he finally made it home from the snowpalooza, he told me that they were a huge hit with the guys when they came in from the cold. And apparently they liked to dip them in their coffee. Men are strange.
We are snowed in today, which is the second time that has happened this year and may only be the 3rd time since we moved here 9 years ago. I am watching all of the world make fun of us "idiot" Southerners. Actually that is the only description I am going to share here as the rest were, ummmm, funny;)
I will say this, because they were fine in the end, but I had a few friends who were making fun of how no one down here can drive and they're from places that "Drive in 20 inches" and then the first storm we had here, two of them got into accidents. And discovered it isn't so easy to drive on non treated roads, especially when it's covered in a half inch of ice. My husband is from Boston, believe me, he used to make the same snide comments...and now he knows. But I personally find all of the mocking to be hilarious. People get their panties in all kinds of bunches over the comments. I have too little time to take myself so serious.
Anyways, if you can get out of your house and you're not snowed in like us, these are a great treat for Valentine's or any day of the year!
