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.
