Football Tops and Bottoms:

  • 2 oz unsweetened chocolate, chopped 
  • 1/4 cup Dutch-process cocoa powder 
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, cut up 
  • 1/3 cup water 
  • 1/2 cup milk 
  • 1 egg 
  • 1 egg yolk 
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla 
  • 1 cup flour 
  • 1 tsp baking powder 
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda 
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Marshmallow Filling:

  • 8 egg whites 
  • 2 cups sugar 
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar 
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • Salted carmel sauce (store-bought)
  1. Preheat over to 350 degrees F. 
  2. In a heatproof bowl, combine chocolate and cocoa powder. In a saucepan over medium heat, heat the granulated sugar, butter, and water, stirring occasionally, until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves. Pour the butter mixture over the chocolate and whisk until the chocolate melts and the mixture is smooth. Whisk the milk, egg, extra yolk, and vanilla into the chocolate mixture until combined. 
  3. In a bowl, stir the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until blended. Add the flour mixture to the chocolate mixture and whisk until smooth. Let the batter sit at room temperature for 1 hour or cover and refrigerate for up to 3 days. 
  4. Once cupcake batter is ready to use, transfer to a piping bag with a medium round tip. Pipe batter into a small circle  about 2” in diameter. If making football shaped whoopie pies, pipe into a football shape. 
  5. Bake for 8 minutes or until done. Allow to cool on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to a cooling rack.

Marshmallow Frosting:

  1. Place egg whites, sugar, and cream of tartar in the heatproof bowl of an electric mixer. Set over a saucepan with simmering water. Whisk constantly until sugar is dissolved and whites are warm to the touch, 3 to 4 minutes. 
  2. Transfer bowl to electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, and beat, starting on low speed, gradually increasing to high, until stiff, glossy peaks form, 5 to 7 minutes. Add vanilla, and mix until combined. Use immediately. 


  1. Once the tops and bottoms have cooled, match them up so similar sizes and shapes are paired together.
  2. Pipe a generous amount of marshmallow frosting onto one of each of the pairs. 
  3. Drizzle with salted caramel sauce. Top with matching whoopie pie top.
