"Krembo" Whoopie Pies (dairy free)

Krembo (Hebrew: קרמבו‎, a portmanteau word meaning literally "cream-in-it") is the name of a chocolate-coated marshmallow treat that is very popular in Israel. Krembos are only sold in the winter. They are hand-wrapped in colourful aluminum foil, and consist of a round biscuit base topped with marshmallow cream coated in a thin layer of chocolate. Krembos have achieved the status of a pop-cultural item and a national icon. (WIKI source)

It all started with a batch of Pecan Chocolate Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, when right in the middle of baking I was introduced to said marshmallow/chocolatey treats. There was no way I wasn't about to find some harmonious way to join the two in chocolatey matrimony!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie + Krembo + Chocolate Ganache = TOTAL MOUTH EXPLOSION

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup (packed) golden brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350°F. Line 2 large rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Whisk flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt in medium bowl to blend. Using electric mixer, beat butter and both sugars in large bowl until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour mixture and oats and stir until blended. Stir in chocolate chips. Drop batter by rounded tablespoonfuls onto prepared sheets, 2 inches apart. Bake cookies, 1 sheet at a time, until edges are light brown, about 16 minutes. Cool on sheets 5 minutes.
