Chocolate Gobs with Icing

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Manda

Gobs are a traditional favorite around here, but it seems that many people out of the area have never even heard of them! Also known as "Whoopie pies" or "Moon pies"...whatever you call them, they are FANTASTIC!! Kids love them. Add food coloring to the icing depending on the occasion. (Red for V-day, green for St. Patty's, etc.) They also freeze well.

I am only writing my honest opinion. The Gob icing was the worst I have ever made or eaten. It was extremely sweet. You never needed the granulated sugar. It was awful and went into the trash.
