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!

Christmas Cookies~Whoopie Pies~Day 11

By | Baking, Cookies, Holidays | 20 Comments

Well, only 1 more day in the 12 Days of Cookies series. Today’s cookies are another new recipe. I have made Pumpkin Whoopie Pies, but not ever Chocolate Whoopie Pies.

Whoopie Pies.fixed.8

And I will have to say, they turned out amazing 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 c. Sugar
  • 6 T. Oil
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 c. Flour
  • 1/2 c. Baking Cocoa
  • 1 t. Baking Soda
  • 1/2 t. Salt
  • 1 t. Baking Powder
  • 4 T. Milk

Directions:

In large bowl, combine sugar and oil, beat until crumbly

Whoopie Pies.fixed.1

Add eggs and milk

Whoopie Pies.fixed.2

Sift together dry ingredients, gradually add to sugar mixture. Chill dough, overnight is best.

Whoopie Pies.fixed.3

Drop by teaspoon onto cookie sheet lined with parchment paper

Whoopie Pies.fixed.4

Note: You can roll into balls so they have a smooth surface, or drop by teaspoons like I did. The dough is very sticky, I could only roll 4-5 cookies, without having my hands too sticky to roll any more. Using 2 teaspoons was easy, I just dipped with one and used the other to scoop it onto the paper.

Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool.

While cookies are cooling, beat filling.

Ingredients for Filling:

  • 1/2 c. Butter
  • 1 c. Powdered Sugar (Confectioners)
  • 1/2 t. Vanilla
  • 1/8 t. Mint Extract (optional)
  • Green food coloring (optional)

Whoopie Pies.fixed.5

I mixed some with mint flavoring and left some plain, because my boys don’t like mint. I thought the mint filling was really good though.

Note: When spreading filling onto cookie, push filling to edge so that it’s a little thicker than the middle. Or put a large amount of filling on each cookie. Top with another cookie and press edge gently so that filling is exposed a little. I was only able to fill about 6 cookies with this recipe, so doubling or tripling would be a good idea.

Dip edge of cookie into crushed peppermint candies

Whoopie Pies.fixed.6

Or use sprinkles on the edge. I placed a piece of wax paper on the counter and just shook the sprinkles over the Whoopie Pie.

It’s the Leaning Tower of Whoopie Pies! 🙂
