Easy Candy Cane Whoopie Pies

Christmas is almost here! Serving a special dessert for a Holiday Party can sometimes be difficult with everything else there is to do. I love desserts that look amazing…look like you spent hours on them…but are really easy. These Easy Candy Cane Whoopie Pies have amazing flavor but are super easy to put together!

The Whoopie Pie flavor combinations are endless, and especially if you use some of Duncan Hines Frosting Creations. There are four limited edition Seasonal Flavors, including the Gingerbread Flavor Mix that I used on the Gingerbread Boys and Girls Cupcakes a couple weeks ago.

Today, I’ve incorporated their new Peppermint Stick flavor into these easy to make Candy Cane Whoopie Pies. Let’s get started…


Easy Candy Cane Whoopie Pies Ingredients

Putting these little cuties together is a snap! After the Vanilla Whoopie Pies bake and are cooled, a simple dollop of Peppermint Stick Frosting, a sprinkle of crushed candy canes and you have an amazing dessert in under 30 minutes!
