This month my son was absolutely thrilled by the book Jimmy Zangwow's Out of this World Moon Pie Adventure.
Of course after reading it he wanted only one thing: to eat one (or more). Problem was I didn't wan't to go buy a moon pie at the supermarket. I've never cared for the pre packaged type. So I set out with faithful Google on a search for a recipe we could make.
I found more Whoopie pie recipes than moon pies. A moon pie would have the cake/cookie layer made of a graham flour based dough, and be dipped in chocolate. I realized though they are close enough to make do. Then I found a super simple Whoopie pie recipe using cake mix. Great!
T chose the flavors he wanted and we set to work. They turned out delicious. You can find the recipe here www.grouprecipes.
They were so good. I think I'll make these again, for his birthday. Make a nice change from cupcakes!
