A couple weeks ago, my co-workers and I went out to Whole Foods to get lunch. While there, one of the guys picked-up a "Chipwich" from the bakery.
The darned thing looks all innocent enough until you figure out that that's not ice cream. It's about an inch and a half of buttercream frosting. According to the sticker (which may or may not be accurate), it weighs-in at a third of a pound. That means we're probably talking about a whole stick of butter just in the frosting.
Of course, when we went back yesterday, I had to try one. They're only two bucks (which is a steal for Whole Foods).
I can only say that it's every bit as sickeningly sweet as you'd think it'd be. I love frosting but this dessert is just a little too over-the-top. I managed to get maybe 1/2 of it down in one sitting and shared the rest with friends.
Total recipe for a stomach ache...

Totally understand. I like whoopie pies, but not when they just fill them with buttercream.ReplyDelete
My recipe for whoopie pies has a Crisco-based icing that is not too sweet and not the least big gritty. It tastes more like the kind you might find in a Hostess treat.ReplyDelete
