Chef notes

Mainers love their whoopie pies — it's the official "state treat" — and you can now find them across the country in all sorts of variations. This recipe is an ode to the traditional New England version that I remember from those visits: little chocolate cakes bound by a filling of buttercream and marshmallow fluff.

Technique tip: The filling is super sticky, so I strongly recommend using a pastry bag (or a zip-tight bag with a corner cut off) to pipe it. Or, if you use a spoon instead, keep a bowl of warm water nearby to rinse with in between filling each pie.
