Chocolate chip whoopie pies

Does fat free ricotta make these healthier?

Treat #1 for Marty and McGee today- chocolate chip whoopie. My twist – fat ricotta cheese as an addition in place of one stick of butter. I Also went with a chocolate fluff filling instead of the traditional vanilla.

  • Whoopie pie ingredients
  • 1 stick of butter, soft
  • 1 cup ricotta cheese ( i used fat free, but you can use whatever kind you want)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips

Directions – combine butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add ricotta cheese. Mix in egg and vanilla. Fold in dry ingredients. Blend in chips. Roll 2 tbs dough into balls and chill at least a couple of hours. Preheat oven to 350. Stagger dough on a cookie sheet lined with nonstick baking liners. Bake 10 to 12 minutes. (Lightly golden on top). Cool on pan 10 minutes, remove and cool completely.

  • Chocolate fluff filling ingredients
  • 1 cup fluff
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 – 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tbs baking cocoa
  • 1-2 tbs heavy cream or milk
  • 1 tsp vanila

Directions – cream butter and fluff. Blend in 1 cup powdered sugar and baking cocoa. Stir in 1 tbs milk or heavy cream and vanilla. You may need to add more,powdered sugar to get the consistency you want. Spread between two cookies.

Store in covered container.
