Creating and serving mini treats is perfect – whether you are wanting just a small bite of something sweet after dinner or making them easy for little hands to hold.

These Mini Pumpkin Whoopie Pies were part of our Fall Party for Kids. The adults will love them just as much as the kids though. In fact, did you know that the Whoopie Pie name is known to come from farmers finding the treats in their lunch, they would shout “Whoopie!” It is thought that the original Whoopie Pies may have been made from cake batter leftovers, which makes perfect sense to start with a cake mix to make them.

Making Whoopie Pies from a cake mix is super easy, these Pumpkin Whoopie Pies started with the new limited edition Duncan Hines Pumpkin Spice Cupcake. The mix even comes with the frosting to fill the center of the whoopie pies and a bag for piping.

    Are all of the ingredients listed, the cupcake ingredients and the frosting mix is the filling?

      Hi Ashleigh, Yes the ingredients listed are what you need for the whoopie pies. The filling is made from frosting that comes in the box, mix according to the box directions. Or you can make your own frosting, whichever you like.
      Happy Baking!
