A Dessert For Any Occasion

If you’ve never made Whoopie Pies before, you are in for a special treat! These little bites are a quick and easy way to add some color and fun to your next celebration!  I found this idea years ago from Betty Crocker and we’ve made them several times in my home. They call them “cupcake poppers”, I just call them DELICIOUS!

They are perfect for birthday parties, baby showers, Halloween, 4th of July… they are a tasty treat that’s easy to customize and match to a certain color scheme. Most recently we made them for our Super Bowl party and we had the whoopie pies in the colors of our favorite team.  (They are kind of perfect for any occasion!)

How to Make Mini Whoppie Pies

Ingredients – First, grab 1 box of white cake mix and the ingredients listed on the box. You’ll also need food coloring and frosting  – our favorite recipe is HERE.

The Batter – Make the cake batter according to package directions, then separate it into four different bowls.  There should be about 1 1/4 cups batter in each.

Color It – Add food coloring to each bowl and mix well.  I used about 5 or 6 drops in each bowl.

Cook – Spoon the batter into mini cupcake tins and bake for them for 8-10 minutes at 350° F, or until they pass the toothpick test. Let them cool completely.

Frosting – If you want to tint the frosting, separate it into small bowls and add 5-6 drops of food coloring to each bowl, then mix well.

Cut – Once the cupcakes are cool, cut off the tops with a serrated knife. You can shamelessly eat the bottoms (no judging here!) or use them to make Cake Pops!

FrostPipe or spread a little frosting onto the underside of one of the tops and then sandwich another top of the same color on top of the frosting complete these mini whoopie pies.
