Chocolate Fudge Brownie Whoopie Pies

is too mouthfull to pronounce ;P.... but I am happy to be baking for E's Music class Friday Food sharing.
They are 10 of them in music class and each week 2 students will bring a plate each to share.
And this my third time baking since it started...

Why am I happy to bake?
for a very simple reason...it makes her happy (and makes me HAPPY!!! coz I get to share and distribute the calories with 11 other tummies ... yippee ;P) 
... class of 10 teenagers plus teacher who will indirectly give me feedback whether the bake is a 'Thumbs Up' or vice versa.

An empty container brought home was a good sign, indicating that the class did enjoy the treat. 
...and her teacher, Miss G, according to E, likes all my bakes but she loved my Salted Caramel Macarons the most :D... *happy dancing*. Oh yes Miss G, You'll get a box of macarons by the end of the year :P

I decided to bake Whoopie Pies... I like the sound of "whoopie" as in whoopee, yippee ~ a happy squealing sound one would make when one is happy, and I did go whoopee with every bite :D
... gone hyper with too much sugar in my bloodstream ;P

For ease and for consistency in size (yeah...yeah... I know I heard ya ;P... I am fussy ... *you are allowed to roll eyes here* ;P ), I use piping bag instead of spoon to dollop dough onto baking tray. Ignore my whitened knuckle in the 3rd photo... whoopee pie dough is not as fluid as macarons macronage, with a little bit of pressure, its all doable.
...and my advice is - best pipe the fudge onto one half of whoopee pie while its still warm... otherwise you may need to ball, roll and flattened the fudge, and guess what?... its still doable ;P
