I have a bunch of dessert recipes coming at you. I can’t help myself. My sweet tooth has been cuhhraaazayy. Maybe it’s moving stress. Maybe it’s awesome-ness, I dunno. But I know you guys LOVE dessert recipes so you must be pretty psyched. En-joy!!
Desserts, perhaps, to consume while you stay up too late watching The Bachelorette? Just me? Well I can’t quit now! I’m way too invested in the season and I see my commitments through, you know? Plus Jordan cannot be the one, right? But most importantly… Why do they all have the same haircut?
Remember in 6th grade when one day, every single guy walked in with the flip? It’s like they all went to the hair dresser together and said bowl cuts are so out and front flips are IN. I’m rooting for Chase but am pretty sure he hasn’t talked all season. I’m not convinced talking is necessary to win any Bachelor/Bachelorette show though. Just saying!!
Most likely some of you reading this ALSO indulge in this show. Don’t leave me hanging! I don’t think JoJo is choosing the guys that will provide the healthiest, most lasting relationship. Though Luke could be a good fit for her. I think she’ll end up picking Luke. What do you think? Sorry, not sorry, I watch The Bachelorette. Don’t judge me too hard 🙂
In other news, we’ve been hanging down the shore for a week or so until Jaryd takes his boards and then we head to Cali. It’s weird to think all our belongings were packed up and in a truck somewhere in the middle of the country, and we’re not with them. Caleb keeps asking about his trucks, “My crane will be in California, right? And Nolan’s trucks? Will ALL the trucks will be in California?” For a four year old, I’d say he’s got his priorities straight.
Ok ok, let’s make some double (maybe triple?) chocolate, fudgy frozen whoopie pies, because you guys… You won’t be able to eat just one. These are like regular whoopie pies, only frozen and more like homemade ice cream sandwiches. The freezing part is probably an unnecessary step if you just want some really fudgy cookies with delicious whip in the middle. But if you want a little something something extra, I suggest chilling them. Plus, it’s SUCH a fun treat for summer!
Here’s how you make Fudgy Frozen Whoopie Pies:
In a large bowl, whisk together the egg yolks, agave, and coconut oil until it gets a little bubbly.
Add the almond flour, baking powder, baking soda, sea salt, cocoa, coconut flour, and mini chocolate chips. Mix until everything is combined.
Place golf-sized balls onto a baking sheet. My batter made about 14 chocolate cookies. Bake for 8 – 10 minutes. Remove the cookies to a cooling rack and make the whip.
In an electric mixer, whip the cream until it has firm peaks. Add the agave and mix once or twice for everything to combine.
Scoop some whip on the bottom side of one of the cookies, and add another to the top, forming a little sandwich.
Place the sandwiches on/in a lined baking pan and place in the freezer for a couple hours.
I like a fresh chocolate drizzle, so once the whoopie pies are chilled, you can drizzle the additional chocolate on top. Alternatively, you can drizzle before you chill.
