I have been needing a MAJOR chocolate fix lately.
 Don`t ask me why. I have made Muddy Buddies, Peanut Butter Cups, Chocolate Cake, you name it
I made it. I ended the week with these   Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Whoopie Pies

   Dude. These things are the bomb. You make some soft, moist, chocolate whoopie pies, and then
you fill them with this chocolate chip cookie dough-inspired frosting. What you got yer self here is
