After preparing dinner early one day, I found myself craving. You know that feeling – you already know that after dinner, you’ll want something sweet. And, I had time to bake!
“Let’s make Whoopie pies!!” I screamed.
The kids looked at me strange-like, as I waved around the new box of Betty Crocker Red Velvet Cake Mix above my head. They were excited to see Mom with a cake-mix box in hand, yet the ‘whoopie’ part of it confused them a little. I then realized that I haven’t made whoopie pies in many years, and the kids hadn’t tried them yet.
This was such a great idea!
The girls all helped me pour items into my mixer, using the simple instructions for making
Red Velvet Whoopie Pies. One thing to note, the rich red of the batter turned more of a brown color after baking. This is because you need to add in a box of instant chocolate pudding into the batter to make it thicker for ‘whoopie’ consistency. Not a big deal, but next time I’ll use this mix for cupcakes, just to see how red the cake turns out.
If you are a reader of my blog, you’ll know that I love my recipe for Cream Cheese Icing. And, this mix comes with Cream Cheese icing too. How does it fare when compared to my own recipe? Well played, Betty Crocker, well played. It’s delicious!
Get creative by adding sprinkles, icing designs – or make them using heart baking pan molds! Either way, it’s a delicious Valentines Day themed dessert – they really are love in mini-cake size!
