Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Sea Salt Caramel {Welcome Meg of henning love}

Hey Delightfully Noted readers, I'm Meg and I write the blog, henning love. Jennifer is one of the sweetest bloggers, but I don't need to tell you that. I am happy to be here for Jennifer today while she is away. Her creativity always amazes me and I hope she can fulfill her dreams she has about notecards.
 I have a delicious treat for you today, as the title said chocolate whoopie pies with caramel filling. I have been seeing whoopie pies pop up and have never had one. It isn't filled with your classic marshmallow style filling but it is equally delicious. With the sea salt added in the recipe, it gives a sweet/salty sensation in your mouth. 

So, first, gather together your ingredients. For the whoopie pie, you need 1 box of devil's food cake mix with pudding, 1/2 cup butter, melted, 1/2 cup water, 3 eggs, and 1 teaspoon sea salt.

For the caramel filling, you need 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened, 3 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1/3 cup caramel sauce, 1 teaspoon sea salt, 1 teaspoon vanilla.
In your mixing bowl, put the cake mix then add the melted butter, eggs, water and sea salt.

Beat all the ingredients together until smooth then set the whoopie mixture aside for 30 minutes. Setting this mixture aside allows the mixture to raise and increase the overall volume of the pies.

After the batter has had a chance to rise, preheat your oven to 400 degrees. On a parchment lined baking sheet, drop spoonfuls of whoopie mixture two-inches apart. Sprinkle the tops of the whoopie pie with some sea salt.

Then pop the pies into the oven for 5 to 7 min or until a toothpick inserted into one of the pies comes out clean. Let the whoopie pie cool on a wire rack.

To make the caramel filling, cream the 1 cup of butter first.

 Reduce the speed gradually and add the powdered sugar beating until the sugar and butter are mix together well.

Then add the caramel sauce, the sea salt and the vanilla. Beat the filling very well.

Put the filling into a frosting bag

and pipe the filling onto one of the whoopie pies and then top the filling with another whoopie pie, making a sandwich.

Then eat and enjoy!

Thank you, Jennifer, for letting me guest post for you today and share a yummy recipe with everyone!
