Valentine's Day is just a few days away! Honestly, I have never cared anything about Valentine's Day. But then I had kids and that changes EVERYTHING. Valentine's Day is now a time to make special crafts, wear cute outfits and make sweet desserts for my sweetie pies.
I mean, look at my little Valentines!
This past weekend we made "Funfettie Valentine's Whoopie Pies."
I am just going to throw this out there- these are the LEAST healthy thing I think I have ever made. They are loaded with sugar. But as Sesame Street reminds us, cookies are a sometimes food.
These whoopie pies are so easy to make, you make the cookie out of cake mix, but it's soft and moist.
What you'll need:
One boxed Funfetti cake mix
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup oil
1 can frosting- I chose to use vanilla and flavor with strawberry Jello.
Combine your cake mix, oil, eggs and baking powder.
It will be thick- like cookie dough.
Spoon your cookies out onto parchment paper or a greased cookie sheet. This should yield 24 cookies- to make 12 pies.
Bake for 10 to 15 minutes at 350.
I used just a can of vanilla icing and I added in a table spoon of strawberry Jello to give it color and flavor.
Once your cookies have cooled, spoon your icing onto half your cookies.
Top your cookie with another cookie! If you have sprinkles you can roll your cookie in the sprinkles for a little something extra.
I chose Funfetti because they are colorful and fun- I mean fun is right there in the title! But you could use any combination. You could use plain, yellow cake mix and add chocolate chips.
You could use chocolate cake mix and use cream cheese icing. The possibilities are endless. It's all about creating a rare treat.
What kind of Valentine's Treats are you making?
