Some of you might know that I celebrated my birthday last week. I had birthday bread pudding and birthday chocolate caramel tart, which incidentally was just about one of the best things I've ever eaten, but let me state for the record that I have yet to partake of any official birthday cake and that includes this delicious Mint Whoopie Pie from This Chick Bakes...
Now I know Blondie goes to Joe at Grand Central nearly every morning for her coffee so when I saw the whoopie pies I did a double take. What?! Whoopie pies?! Whoopie pies in midtown?! Are you holding out on me, Ms. Blondie?
The nice lady behind the counter told me they usually put the whoopies out in the afternoon (probably after they finish up with the day's doughnuts). I've tried a few whoopie pies in the city and this was the best by far. The cake was moist and chocolatey and the filling had just the right amount of sweetness. While I wouldn't have minded a more favorable filling to cake ratio, all in all this was a satisfying treat.
