Enjoy! But not too much, because – sadly, these do have calories.
This is the cheater’s version made with chocolate cake mix.
1 box chocolate cake mix
1/3 cup water
3 Tbsp. oil
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix all ingredients together. I mix for about 2 minutes with an electric mixer. Drop a teaspoon onto a greased cookie sheet. Spread out the dollop into a round cookie like shape (not too thin!). Remember to leave enough space for the batter to spread.
Bake about 8 to 10 minutes. Cool completely on wire rack.
1 cup shortening (or you can use 1/2 cup shortening and a 1/2 cup butter)
1 cup confectioner’s sugar
1 cup marshmallow fluff
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla extract
Cream together shortening (or butter and shortening) with confectioner’s sugar until smooth. Then add in the remaining ingredients and blend again.
Assemble the Whoopies by spreading frosting between two “pies” with the rounded side facing out. If you are feeling extra creative, roll the edges in sprinkles (or crushed up peppermints, sprinkles, colored sugar, etc.).
I store them in a re-sealable container. If you have to stack them on top of each other, put wax paper between the layers (otherwise your Whoopies will stick to each other). But who are we kidding? They won’t last long enough for storage.
