Chocolate Whoopie Pies

All Blakely could talk about in the weeks leading up to her birthday was that she wanted Chocolate Whoopie Pies!  If you asked her what presents she wanted for her birthday she would answer you with "Chocolate Whoopie Pies."  And if you asked her what she wanted for dinner she would answer with "Chocolate Whoopie Pies."  Seriously, my children are so simple when it comes to what they want for birthdays - all they care about is the dessert!

Chocolate Whoopie Pies was what she wanted, and chocolate whoopie pies was what she got.  A few family members remarked that these were their favorite flavor Whoopie Pie yet!  And they just happen to be Cake Mix Recipe #49!

Your Shopping List for the Chocolate Whoopie Pies:

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup veggie oil
  • vanilla buttercream icing - you can buy some at the store or make my recipe HERE

Now Let's Make the Chocolate Whoopie Pies:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line a couple of baking sheets with parchment paper
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, combine the cake mix, eggs, water, and oil
  3. Beat on low speed for 30 seconds.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl.  Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes
  4. Use a medium cookie scoop to drop batter onto prepared baking sheets - leave room for spreading
  5. Take the back of a spoon or spatula and swirl the batter into circles 
  6. Bake in preheated oven for 9-12 minutes until cakes are cooked through and spring back to the touch
  7. Allow to cool on pans for 2 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely
  8. Once cakes are cool, flip half of the over and spread buttercream icing on the bottom. Top with additional cake, essentially making a sandwich
  9. Store at room temperature for up to 24 hours if using homemade icing, after that store in the fridge
