New at Biscotteria Margherita: Choc-top Cookies and a Homespun Take on Whoopie Pies

The two newest additions to the Biscotteria Margherita menu are actually the end result of my not wanting to waste excess batter from a previous order of cupcakes. When I got home from a delivery, I took the remaining batter from the fridge and took stock of the situation. There was too much of it to just throw away (such a waste!) but not enough even to fill my smallest cake tins. In such a situation, what’s a girl to do?

Why, make cakey Choc-top Cookies and Whoop-de-dos, of course!

I gave the cookies the name “choc-top” not because of the frozen treat, but because they resemble the tops of chocolate cupcakes. Whoop-de-dos, on the other hand, are obviously my personal take on whoopie pies and may be filled with one’s choice of gianduja, peanut butter, ganache, or cheesecake filling.

Rich, chocolatey, and handy for toting along – what’s not to like? 😀

To know more about these, email me at or call/text me at 0915-8517362. Alas, I can only handle local orders at this point in time.
