Hazelnut & Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Guylian Sea Shell Chocolates Recipe

  • Author: foodnerd4life
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 8 1x


Makes 8 Large Whoopie Pies



For the Dough

  • 300g Self Raising Flour
  • 50g Cocoa Powder
  • 2 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 175g Light Soft Brown Sugar
  • 1 Large Free Range Egg
  • 75ml Vegetable Oil
  • 150ml Buttermilk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 75ml Boiling Water


For the Hazelnut Chocolate Butter Cream

  • 88g Unsalted Butter, softened
  • 88g Icing Sugar
  • 175g Hazelnut Spread
  • 75g Chopped Hazelnuts

For Finishing Touches

  • 8 Guylian Sea Shell Chocolates


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C, line a couple of baking trays with parchment and set aside. In a large bowl, sieve the cocoa powder and self-raising flour, bicarbonate of soda, then stir in the sugar.
  2. In a separate jug, whisk the egg, oil, buttermilk and vanilla extract together, stirring into the dry ingredients. It will look dry, then add in the boiling water carefully. The mixture will magically turn to a thick airy batter.
  3. Using a tablespoon, drop a spoonful of the batter onto the prepared baking trays. Keep them well spread out as will spread in the oven. Bake for 12 minutes or until firm to touch. Peel off the paper and transfer to a cooling rack. Cool completely.
  4. Make the filling. Whisk the butter until light and creamy, slowly add the icing sugar spoonful at a time until it is all added. Whisk in the hazelnut spread until combined. Transfer to a piping bag with a star nozzle and chill for an hour to firm up.
  5. Match up the whoopie halves to two even shapes, and pipe on one side a good covering of the filling, then sandwich together, repeat with the remaining whoopie pies. Pour the chopped hazelnuts onto a plate, roll each of the whoopie pies edges in the hazelnuts to stick to the filling.
  6. Dab a small amount of the frosting on the top of each whoopie pie and add the finishing touches of a Guylian Sea Shell Chocolate to each one.
