Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

I love anything red velvet! These are surprisingly simple and can be made any size. I prefer these smaller with a slightly thicker frosting. Refrigerate if preferred.

Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

For the whoopie pies…
1 box Red Velvet cake mix
2 large eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil

For the frosting / filling…
1 stick unsalted butter
2 oz. cream cheese
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 1/2 cups confectioners’ sugar
4-5 tablespoons milk

Start by preheating your oven to 375 degrees F. Line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.

In a large bowl combine the cake mix, eggs and vegetable oil until combined.

Place dough, slightly smaller than a tablespoon size, into balls onto prepared baking sheets.

Bake, one sheet at a time, for 8 minutes.

Once baked, remove and allow to cool completely before filling.

To make frosting / filling combine the butter and cream cheese and beat until light and fluffy. Add the salt and confectioners’ sugar. Add in milk until desired consistency. I like the frosting thick but spreadable.

Put frosting between two cooled cookies and press slightly together.

Enjoy!
