Green tea whoopee pies

IMG_5385

For those of you unfamiliar with whoopee pies, they’re two slices of cake with a gooey marshmallow middle dipped in chocolate. Here in China they sell a matcha green tea version of the snack, where the center is made of green tea.

My followers will know that matcha is not one of my favorite foods. The green tea in this cake was not very strong, so the flavor for me was just right and not too overpowering. I still prefer the original whoopee pies though, as the marshmallowy middle was rather dry and not nearly as gooey as usual.
