OhhhhMyStinkinHeck! I can’t say enough how good these are. Recently I was sent some chocolate shavings by Chupon Chocolate. For a couple of days they sat there and taunted me. I mean really, how can you just let chocolate sit there?? Every time I would walk past them they would scream at me “Drink me, You know you want to!” But I also knew I wanted to make something with them. Something to satisfy my love of sweets. And my love of chocolate. After pondering it a day or two I decided on cookies.
After making the cookies and icing about half of them I decided they would also make fabulous whoopie pies, and that is what happened to the other half.
I can’t quit eating these. Seriously. I am probably going to gain 500 pounds between now and Christmas.

Chupon is delicious, delectable flavor-infused chocolate shavings for hot chocolate, mixed drinks, baking and more! It is how hot chocolate should be made… and much more! All 3 flavors are delicious. I am in love!
These are really easy to make. Simply mix the cake mix, butter flavored crisco and eggs.
Warm milk in microwave for 30 seconds, add the Chupon Mocha, mix well.
Add into batter. The batter is going to be pretty thick. That is the way it is supposed to be.
Bake for 8-10 minutes on 350 degrees.
Gather up the ingredients for the icing. I love this icing! Of course I love marshmallow cream alone so of course this is going to be one of my favorites.
Ice the cookies
And sprinkle with chocolate shavings.
Or, slap a bunch of icing in the middle of two cookies and you have a whoopie pie!
CHUPON MOCHA COOKIES OR WHOOPIE PIES
1 chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup butter-flavored shortening
3 Tablespoons milk
3 Tablespoons Chupon Mocha Chocolate
Preheat oven to 350. Combine cake mix, eggs, shortening in the bowl of a heavy-duty mixer and mix until well combined. Warm milk in a mug in the microwave for 30 seconds and add chocolate, mixing well. Add the chocolate milk to the dough and mix well. Drop dough by the tablespoon onto a baking sheet and bake for about 8-10 minutes or until the cookies appear done but are still soft in the center. Do not over-bake. In my oven 8 minutes is perfect.
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) margarine or butter, softened
1 jar (7 oz.) Marshmallow Creme
1 tsp. vanilla
1 pkg. (16 oz.) powdered sugar
1 to 2 Tbsp. milk, divided
Place margarine, marshmallow creme and vanilla in small bowl; beat on medium speed until well blended. Gradually add sugar, beating after each addition until well blended. Mix in 1 Tbsp. of the milk. Add remaining 1 Tbsp. milk if necessary for desired spreading consistency. I only needed to use one tablespoon of milk because I wanted mine to be a little on the thicker side.
AND, thanks to the great folks at Chupon, one of you lucky folks are going to win a 3-pack sampler!
