Whoopie Pie Recipe

Easy Whoopie Pie Recipe
(using cake mix)

Whoopie Pies are like the new cupcakes, maybe even the new cake pops.
They are easy to make, adorable and beyond yummy.  You can make them from scratch, or...you can be like me, and doctor up a cake mix to create these treats.



Let's make these bad boys together:


Whoopie Pie Ingredients:
2 packages of Devil's Food Cake Mix
4 eggs
1 1/4 cup Crisco {shortening}



Frosting Ingredients:
4 cups of powdered sugar
8 ounces of cream cheese
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
pinch of salt 

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  Combine all the whoopie pie ingredients and mix.  The batter will be thick, that is normal. 



Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. This is VERY important.  The whoopies cook really fast and the parchment paper helps prevent them from burning on the bottom.



Use a tablespoon to scoop spoonfuls and place 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet.





Bake for 8-10 minutes. Watch closely because they cook really fast. 
This batch will make about 24 complete whoopie pies {2 cookies per pie}.



While you finish baking the rest of the pies, get started on the frosting.
Combine all the ingredients and blend until smooth.



Put all the frosting in a large Ziploc bag and cut a small hole in the tip.



Take your cooled whoopie pies and apply a large dollop to one side using the plastic bag.



Put the other whoopie on top.




Add your favorite sprinkles.



And enjoy!



You can even add food coloring to the frosting for a more festive look.

  

Holy cow, these are good. Seriously.
Hurry and wrap them up and get them out of your house,
unless you're prepared to eat all 24 by yourself in one night.

Those look so so good. I have always been afraid of whoopie pies because I thought they would be very hard to make...I think you just conquered a fear of mine :) My abs do not say thank you.

I love seeing "what goes around comes around". My mom made these for us in the early 80s! :). I still have the original recipe. Her icing is the cooked flour recipe. Your blog is adorable!!

I could eat them all by myself : )

This is getting bookmarked, it is going to be absoulutely perfect for my son's birthday. I always thought I would need a whoopie pie pan to do the caky part, good to know it works well without the pan. Jake was born on Halloween and I can see these fitting right in with orange and black sprinkles!

Yum!! I've made pumpkin whoopie pies before, and I loved them.

I think it's funny that you said to get them outta your house. I usually do a fourth or half of a recipe (if possible). If I do a full recipe, I *definitely* have to get it out of the house ASAP!

Ok, this might seem like a strange comment but - do all eggs look like this in America?? They are so white they almost don't look real??

More on the subject, these really look yummy and I think I'll be giving them a try asap! Thanks Ashley! x

My daughter's fourth birthday party is coming up next month and although she's decided on make-your-own-sundae...I might have to whip up some of these bad boys to boot!

ashley this is so tempting! i have yet to make whoopie pies and i'm a major baker. it's such a stress reliever. it looks like you have really nice vanilla--where do you get it?
