Yummy Gobs…

My grandma used to make these yummy creations.  Each time I’ve tried using her recipe they always turn out super dry.  So, I’ve come up with a new recipe.

1 Chocolate Cake Mix

3/4 cup water

1/2 cup vegetable oil

3 eggs

Mix all ingredients.  Once it is mixed well, continue mixing for 1-2 minutes.

Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray.  Drop batter onto sheet by 1/4 cupfuls.  (I used a medium scoop).  Bake at 350 for 12 minutes.

Cool for 15 minutes.  Depending on your time, you have two options.  You can fill the gobs with a tub of frosting or make Grandma’s Filling.

2 eggs

4 cups powdered sugar

1 1/2 cup Crisco (you can use half butter and half shortening if you like)

2 tsp. vanilla

4 TBSP. flour

4 TBSP. milk

Beat together.  If it is too thick add a little more milk.  Too runny, add some more powdered sugar.

Place your desired frosting between two cookies.

You’ll need to individually wrap each gob so that they don’t stick together.  These are so yummy!!!

    They are. So that we wouldn't eat them all, I put a few in the freezer and took the rest to work. Needless to say, they were a hit!!!

    Eunice – thanks for stopping by. Yes, these are also called whoopie pies but my family has always called them gobs. I have a few in the freezer so that we wouldn't eat them all at once.Jamie – so glad you gave them a try!!!

    never heard them called yummy gobs before, but they're definitely what we here in Lanc Co call whoopie pies. :-) still oh, so good…and we actually prefer ours mostly frozen as they don't freeze solid. :-)~eunice brsmile2u @dejazzd .com
