YIELD: 18 Pies
INGREDIENTS:
For the Cake
1 cup white sugar
3/4 cup and 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 cup and 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup boiling water

For the Marshmallow Frosting
4 egg whites
1 cup of sugar
¼ teaspoon of cream of tartar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

For the Topping:
5 ounces of semisweet chocolate
½ cup heavy cream

graham cracker crumbs for garnish

DIRECTIONS:
For the Cake
1. Heat oven to 320 F. Spray your whoopee pie pan with non-stick cooking spray.
Stir together sugar, flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Add egg, milk, oil and vanilla; beat on medium speed of mixer 2 minutes. Stir in boiling water (batter will be thin).
2. Pour 1 ½ tablespoons of batter into each well of the whoopie pie pan.
3. Bake 8-10 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.
4. Cool for 10 minutes in the pan then invert the pan and allow the whoopies to cool completely on wire racks.
5. Wash and dry the pan and re-spray with non-stick cooking spray and repeat with the remaining batter. You will end up with 36 whoopie cakes that once sandwiched will yield 18 whoopie pies.
6. Once your whoopies are cool, prepare the marshmallow frosting.

For the Marshmallow Frosting
1. Place egg whites, sugar, and cream of tartar in the heatproof bowl of an electric mixer. Set over a saucepan with simmering water. Whisk constantly until sugar is dissolved and whites are warm to the touch, 3 to 4 minutes.
2. Transfer bowl to electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, and beat, starting on low speed, gradually increasing to high, until stiff, glossy peaks form, 5 to 7 minutes. Add vanilla, and mix until combined.

For the Topping:
Place the chocolate into a medium bowl. Heat the cream in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Bring just to a boil, watching very carefully because if it boils for a few seconds, it will boil out of the pot. When the cream has come to a boil, pour over the chopped chocolate, and allow to sit for a few minutes. Whisk until smooth.

What setting up a cool smores bar for you guys? Get a couple of those gel things you light (that go usually go under fondu pots), then set up some bowls with marshmallows, chocolate, graham crackers, rolo's (to stuff into the marshmallows before you roast them), strawberries (to stuff in as well), etc etc!
