Servings: 20
  • 300 g + 50 g soft caramel sweets (e.g. cream moo-moo)
  • 500 g Whipped cream
  • 75 g Butter
  • 125 g Flour
  • 225 g demerara sugar
  • 50 g Cocoa
  • 1 package Vanilla sugar
  • 7-10 Tbsp Salt
  • 2 coated Tsp Baking Powder
  • 100 g Dark chocolate
  • 3 Eggs (Gr. M)
  • 2 packages cream stiffener
  • 50 g Dark chocolate coating
  • 30 g Hazelnut kernels
  • baking paper
  • 7-10 Tbsp Piping bag


  1. 1

    For the filling, chop 300 g caramel sweets. Boil up with the cream while stirring. Simmer for about 10 minutes until the candies are dissolved. Let the toffee cream cool down in a mixing bowl. Chill for about 2 hours.

  2. 2

    Preheat oven (electric cooker: 200 °C/circulating air: 175 °C/gas: see manufacturer). For the dough melt butter and let it cool down a little. Mix flour, sugar, cocoa, vanilla sugar, 1 pinch of salt and baking powder.

  3. 3

    Finely chop the chocolate. Beat the eggs with the whisk of the mixer until creamy. Add liquid butter while stirring. First stir in flour mixture, then chocolate.

  4. 4

    Line a baking tray with baking paper. 13-14 Place heaps of dough on the baking tray with a little space between them (they run apart during baking). Bake in a hot oven for about 10 minutes until the edges form a light crust.

  5. 5

    Take it out. First cool down on the tray for about 5 minutes, then remove from the tray together with the paper, let it cool down. Bake a total of about 40 whoopie halves from the dough.

  6. 6

    Halve the toffee cream, whip until creamy and allow 1 packet of cream stiffener to trickle in. Finely chop 50 g caramel sweets and fold into both toffee creams. Pour into a piping bag with a large perforated spout.

  7. 7

    Spray onto the smooth underside of about 20 whoopie halves. Place the remaining halves on top with the flat side as a lid. Chill for at least 30 minutes.

  8. 8

    Coarsely chop the chocolate coating, melt in a hot water bath and let it cool down a little. Coarsely chop the hazelnuts. Put a small spot of chocolate coating on each Whoopie Pie and sprinkle with nuts. Keep cool until serving.
