Let's Make Whoopie!!!

Can ya tell Bob's out of town? Of course you can...he'd have reigned me in by now if he were home. But before he left we did make a little, no a lot, of whoopie. Pies, that is. Red Velvet and Chocolate Fudge.

And they were absolutely yummy. I have always made my Whoopie Pies completely from scratch. And they rock. However, one of my favorite food blogs, posted these right before Valentine's Day.

Be still my beating heart. I just had to make them. I am a huge fan of red velvet cake. Bob, not so much. So for him we made a batch of chocolate fudge whoopie pies. He took them to work for his Monday morning meeting and they were a hit.

Believe it or not, these are made from a cake mix. So any flavor your little heart desires is just a cake mix away. Too simple to be believed? Just wait til you see the recipe! But we don't really need to share just how easy they really are, do we? Just bask in the glory of the adoration being thrown your way between mouthfuls of these little sweeties. And enjoy!!!
