March Madness Dessert:Salted Caramel & Chocolate Stout Whoopie Pie

Salted Caramel and Chocolate Stout Whoopie Pie ~ Your March Madness power dessert! Huh? Yeah, that’s right. Chocolate beer batter cakes and salted caramel buttercream filling meet up for  a 3-in-1 flavoring  in  a whoopie pie that’s a little bit sweet, a little bit salty and a whole lotta beer  for March Madness gluttony.

Now you’re probably wondering what is someone like me is doing writing about March Madness. Let me say, here’s something that if you don’t know me might surprise you-I’m a sports fan.

I grew up playing competitive sports, and before that, I was a tomboy for most of my younger years. That’s what happens when you have an older brother you idolize—I learned how to be one of the boys to play with the boys.

That included playing and watching basketball. Of all the sports, basketball was a favorite in our house. Which I have to say to this day works out nicely since Matt is a huge basketball fan as well.

We both grew up watching the Lakers and today we continue that tradition with our boys. Although the biggest bummer now is I can’t keep my own with any males and when I play a game of  H.O.R.S.E with Matt we end up playing “Horses are big beautiful animals” just so I don’t get demolished in under 10 seconds. But for the sake of my ego, I should preface—he is way better than the average recreational player.

Now for the recipe . . . hit the jump on over to Endless Simmer where you’ll find it there.

    I’m always looking for fun flavor combos. Those whoopie pies sound great. They are so cute, too, especially with that little bottle of milk.

    They look amazing! Do you think I could substitute root beer for the stout? I’m thinking of a root beer float whoopie. :)

    Bokeh envy. 😛


    With Arizona’s victory over Duke, I am currently in FIRST PLACE in my office pool. Woo!

    And… salted caramel is my all-time favorite. So put them in a whoopie pie, even better!

    Glad you’re a sports fan.
