I have a huge container of chocolate whoopie pie "off cuts" (not iced) in my freezer that I'd like to use. Any ideas would be most welcome!

Cake pops. Basically a blend of cake and icing on a lollipop stick. Plenty of recipes out there, kids love em.
Many bakeries would do similar things with leftover scraps, bound together with leftover frosting, shaped into balls or little animals, then covered with chocolate ganache. I worked in a bakery as a teenager where I saw this trick in action.

Great idea! A friend suggested rum balls, but I don't want to use alcohol. Thanks so much. :)

You could fold them into softened ice cream (homemade or store bought) and re-freeze. Also love the idea of trifle -- or how about a chocolate tiramisu?

Oh my, chocolate tiramisu! So soak the cake pieces in the same way as you would the biscuits? My friend recently used some extra mangoes by making a "mangomisu", using orange liqeuer. It was amazing!

You could use them in a trifle or defrost and make ice cream sandwiches.

I love trifle, great idea! Are icecream sandwiches an American treat? I'm in Australia and can't say I've ever had one. Sounds delicious though, and its been such a hot summer, I'm sure they'd be really popular! Thanks!

Ice cream cake - use them as a layer
