Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

Whoopie Pies are a family favorite, but classic whoopie pies are so large and most of the time people end up cutting them in half.

So, I decided to make a mini version to bring to my Sister’s house on Christmas Eve.

They are still about the size of a standard cookie, but mini compared to a full size whoopie pie!

I have a printable recipe card attached to make it easier to save to Pinterest, or print if you like. Enjoy!

I would love to hear if you give this recipe a try.

The great thing about using a box mix, aside from the ease, is you can use any flavor you like.

I’m definitely going to make german chocolate for Christmas Eve as well.

What flavor mix would you like to try? My mind is spinning now with ideas.

How about strawberry, pumpkin spice, etc, etc.
