Chocolate Oreo Whoopie Cakes! Cookies & Cream filling and topped with Chocolate Ganash..



I found this recipe in a book called Whoopies Cakes by Susanna Tea, she called them "Very Chocolate Whoopies" Mine look nothing like hers but they still tasted great!

Ingredients

100g Cooking Chocolate
115g Softened Butter
200g Sugar
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 large Egg
280g White Plain Flour
50 g Cocoa Powder
2 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
Pinch of salt
225ml Milk
Mini Oreo Biscuits to decorate
Oreo Cream Fillling
Chocolate Ganash for top

Preheat the over to 190 or 170 Fan forced. Line baking trays or I used a rounded old fashioned patty tin. Grate the chocolate and set aside. Beat the butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy and then beat in the egg. Sift the flour, baking powder and the cocoa and salt into the bowl and fold together alternating with the milk until all combined. Using a tablespoon put the mixture onto the baking trays or into the patty tins. Bake for 10 - 12 Minutes or until firm to touch. Cool on a wire tray and then sandwich them together with the oreo filling. Ganash the top and decorate with a mini oreo!

Oreo Cream filling.... 3 oreo cookies, 55g softened butter, 115g cream cheese, 350g icing sugar. Crush the biscuits in a bag using a rolling pin or give them a quick blitz in the food processor. Beat the butter and the cream cheese until ight and fluffy then add the icing sugar until smooth. Fold in the biscuits.

Ganash...150g chocolate 150ml cream, small knob of butter...Heat the cream and chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of simmering water until the chocolate is melted, stir constantly. Remove from the heat and add the butter. Leave to cool for a few hours until it firms up.. stir occasionally. To firm a bit quicker pop into the fridge.

Its a good idea to make your chocolate ganash and the filling first so they are ready once the whoopies cool
