Let's Make Whoopie Pies

I wanted to make some Whoopie Pies for one of my neighbors who has little kids and also wanted to try making them from a cake mix to see how that worked out so found a recipe from “Betty Crocker” and used my Wilton whoopie pie pan and they came out great, tasted yummy and looked good too although homemade are better, of course.  The Betty Crocker recipe used frosting for the filling but I went with the more traditional marshmallow filling which you can find here.  When I was done, they looked kind of naked so I added a giant sprinkle on the top of each, stuck on with some of the filling, much more fun for the kids!

pies:

1 box Devil’s Food cake mix

3/4 cup water

1/2 cup oil

3 eggs

1 (4 serving size) box chocolate instant pudding and pie filling mix

filling:

2 containers whipped fluffy white frosting

1  Preheat oven to 350.  (I did 325 because my whoopie pie pan is dark in color.)

2  Line cookie sheets with parchment paper, silicone baking liners or lightly spray with cooking spray.

3  Beat all pie ingredients on low until moistened then for 1 minute on high.

4  Pour batter into resealable gallon bag.  Seal and snip off one corner.

5  Pipe batter into 36 small circles onto prepared cookie sheets about 1″ apart to allow for spreading.

6  Bake 10 – 12 minutes until set being careful to not over bake.  Cool 2 minutes then remove from cookie sheets onto cooling racks.  Cool completely before filling.

7  Once pies are cooled, spread frosting on flat side of one cookie.  Top with second cookie, flat side down to make sandwich.
