Chocolate & Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies

I have been addicted to whoopie pies lately and this one I made up all by myself, which I am proud of.  This is ssssssssssooooooooooo yummy!

There's a girl of not many words!:)  And I had to make so many spelling corrections...that girl CANNOT spell worth beans, but we love her anyway!  And she's right, she came up with this one after I had tried a new concoction as well (we'll post that one too cause it was super yummy as well!).  This one was my favorite of the 2 though...that's another fact that Kyla is very proud of!:)

Chocolate & Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies

1 box chocolate cake mix (We used triple chocolate, but any would work)
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
1/2 cup peanut butter chips

Mix cake mix, eggs, and oil in a mixer.  It will be thick and sticky...you did it right!:)  Add the peanut butter chips and mix until incorporated.  Scoop with a medium cookie scoop (win one here) onto a cookie sheet lined with a silpat or parchment paper (win a silpat here, too!) and cook for 7-9 minutes.  Let cool on pan for about 3 minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack until completely cooled. 

Frosting:
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups powdered sugar

Cream together the butter and peanut butter. Add the vanilla, then the sugar. Beat until fluffy.

Assembly:
Place all the cookies upside down and pipe the frosting (or you could just spread it) onto half of the cookies.  Place the other cookie on top and you've got yourself a Whoopie Pie!!  And a really good one at that!!:)
ENJOY!!
