Whoopie Pies are the latest addition to the collection of baked goods by Hot Blondies Bakery. Big, cakey cookies in four flavors. They've got classic chocolate and vanilla whoopie pies, or reverse it with chocolate buttercream sandwiched between two vanilla cookies. For something more sophisticated, lemon whoopies are matched with tangy mascarpone creme. You can't go wrong with the red velvet and cream cheese combination, but there's no point in picking a favorite. Sharing a bit of all is the ideal way to go. For Valentine's, they're also baking "Love Bites"—signature blondies in the shape of mini-hearts (the regular-sized hearts are called "Heart-to-Heart") with white chocolate chips and a parade of white and pink sprinkles.
