These Mini Mint Chocolate Chip Whoopie Pies are the perfect bite sized treats for St. Patrick’s Day or any day of the year. A rich chocolate ganache and cool mint chocolate chip cream are sandwiched between two dark chocolate cakes.
If there’s one flavor combination that’s always on the top of my list, it would definitely be chocolate and mint. Ice cream, cookies sold my little girls that ring my doorbell… And now these Mini Chocolate Chip Whoopie Pies. These miniature desserts pack several layers of flavor in a single bite.
First are the rich, dark chocolate cakes. Moist and decadent and the perfect vehicle for not one, but two fillings. One side receives a dollop of cool, mint chocolate chip cream. The other a slathering of chocolate ganache. I’m of the mindset that every dessert can be made better with chocolate ganache.
When the two cakes and fillings are sandwiched together? It’s nothing short of perfection.
I used a mini whoopie pie pan to create these cakes but it’s definitely not necessary. For less rounded cakes, you can simply drop the batter by the tablespoon onto a parchment covered baking sheet.
I’m so excited to partner with my uber-talented friend Jennifer McGuire of Jennifer McGuire Ink for a new monthly series. Each month, I’ll be sharing a seasonal recipe that Jennifer will in turn create packaging for so that when combined, you have a perfect sweet treat for a friend, neighbor or whomever you choose.
For St. Patrick’s Day, she’s created these adorable shamrock picks and has included a how-to video as well as a free download to help you adorn your whoopie pies.
We hope you’ll enjoy creating these sweet treats as much as we have!
