Recipe writer Tracey Koch is a lover of all things retro. Which is why when it comes to Halloween candy, she dips back into the recipes from her childhood, like peanut butter taffy, salted caramel apples and a big favorite: devil dogs.
These are a chocolate cake treat that is much like an oblong whoopie pie. Made from a dense chocolate cake and light creamy filling, it’s the perfectly balanced sweet treat to feed the kid in all of us.
For Tracey’s recipe, she enhanced the vanilla flavor in the fluffy white filling by using vanilla bean along with pure vanilla extract, and the end result was delicious.
