Brownie Whoopie Pies with Nutella peanut Butter Frosting
Words can’t properly describe how decadently good these Brownie Whoopie Pies with Nutella Peanut Butter Frosting are…but I’m gonna try! The whoopie pies are in brownie form, rich in chocolate flavour from melted semi-sweet chocolate as well as cocoa powder and they are dotted with peanut butter chips. If that wasn’t enough, the two whoopie pies are joined with a not-too-sweet creamy Nutella peanut butter frosting. Chocolate & peanut butter lovers rejoice…this is a good one!
Hi guys! How’s ya? How was your weekend? We had a pretty productive weekend doing odds and ends around the house, as well as making some good eats (but that goes without saying, right 😏 I broke out my elf slippers this weekend! Check it—>
So, these slippers hold a special place in my heart and not just because they remind me of the holidays. A few years ago we moved to our current home. We moved in December, not much more than a week (yes, a week) before Christmas. Up until we moved, the weather ’round here was decent, not too cold. But the day we moved? Brutally cold❄️ We lost almost all of our houseplants that day. I remember we were in such a rush to get everything put in its place before the big day🎅 I felt like a zombie. While it was a happy and exciting time moving into our new home, I was pooped. We headed out and hubby ran into Wal-Mart to get paper towels or something. I stayed waiting in the vehicle. I wasn’t fit to go in anywhere. Then, he gave me these slippers. It was so thoughtful and such a lovely gesture and just put a smile on my face…I mean, just look at them. Cute, right?? Every time I see these slippers sitting on my closet shelf, I think of that day. For the record, we were in such a rush that year, that we didn’t even have our tree decorated😳 Nope. We have one of those pre-lit trees and it was literally just plugged in🎄Though, at least it was up. Positive thinking. And we were together, in our new home, with our furry child and that was a wonderful thing ❤️
Onto these Brownie Whoopie Pies with Nutella Peanut Butter Frosting, shall we? So, I was whipping these up in the kitchen when I realized we were getting low on food for our fur baby. Hubby was out and about on this particular Saturday so I gave him a holla to pick up some. Of course, traffic is particularly busy on any given Saturday, but now that the holidays are quickly approaching it is extra cray cray🚗 As soon as hubby came through the door he was talking about that dang traffic. So you know what I did to
get him to stop complaining ease his pain, I walked right out to the front door and shoved one of these brownie whoopie pies in his piehole😜 And ya know what? It worked like a charm! Tame the dragon hubby with food…exactly like me…hehehe 😉
These Brownie Whoopie Pies with Nutella Peanut Butter frosting are dangerously good, you guys. And they literally take minutes to prep and only 10 minutes to bake so you could be having these in no time at all. Good for your sweet tooth, not so good for your waistline. But you know what they say? Everything in moderation, including moderation👍
In all seriousness, though, these are not too sweet at all. They are the perfect little bite. I only used 1/4 cup of icing sugar in the frosting so the chocolatey-peanut butter flavour really shines through without being overly sweet. And, if you happen to have some leftover frosting in your piping bag, I’m not gonna judge if you pipe it directly into your mouth. Yes, I did do that🙈
You know what else I love about these? The fact that they are easy to frost! Being mediocre at best in the frosting department, these are perfect for moi. Though I did pipe the frosting onto these bad boys, you could totally spoon it on too.
Until next time, take care and chit chat again soon 🙂
