Chocolate Peppermint Whoopee Cookie

On the first day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
A partridge Whoopee Pie in a pear tree.

Yesterday my family bought our Christmas tree, put up our decorations and stockings and got into the spirit of the holidays.   Before becoming a parent, Mr. Bejelly and I would often skip decorations.  Heck, there were a couple of years where we would even go without a tree. I know, sad.   However, this year our house looks like the Grizwolds just set up camp for their next movie.

To celebrate the Christmas spirit, I’ve joined together with 10 bloggers to share Paleo treat recipes over the next 12 days.

12 days of Christmas

 I’m kicking it off with this Dark Chocolate Peppermint Whoopee pie.   There is just something about peppermint, chocolate and whipped cream that make me dream of snow covered streets and a warm fire in the hearth.  It also makes me think of Santa Claus and the wonder and miracle of the gift of small things.

You are a genius, or is it genious-ess? :) I follow Wheat Belly so, in the interest of eliminating even the small sugar exposure from the maple syrup, I used the same measurements of Xyla sweetener.

The whoopie pies are excellent!

Thank you for posting this.

These look so good! I only have a mini muffin tray,Do you think I could fill them shallow and make little cookies? like almost smallerthan oreos? WouldI adjust the time/temperature?

Yes that should work perfectly and you can perhaps adjust the time cook time by 2 or 3 minutes. Happy holidays and Happy Eating.

How wonderful! And, I love that your recipe doesn't make say a dozen or more. Just enough for a few people to enjoy. Love it!

Yep! I make so many sweets that I don't need a lot of it hanging around the house :)

Question: I don't have a muffin top pan. Can I plop them "cookie-style" on a cookie sheet? Or use a regular muffin pan and fill them shallow?

The batter is pretty runny so I would do a muffin pan :)
