Whoopie Pie Cupcakes

| |

Ah….the whoopie pie.  Such a wonderful treat but sort of time consuming to make.  How much more convenient in cupcake form!  All Easy Recipes found a way to combine a dark, rich chocolate cupcake with the real kind of whoopie pie filling.  The easy, fake kind is just frosting.  The real kind starts with a cooked flour based paste.  Yum!
