In a salute to Spring, childhood, and fun memories, I thought it would be fun to whip up this fun and simply the best whoopie pie recipe ever!

 

 

Rainbow Sprinkles Whoopie Pies

One of the reasons this has become my favorite whoopie pie recipe is that it uses a boxed cake mix. Don’t get me wrong, I do love baking from scratch, but sometimes semi-homemade items work just as well, if not better. Another reason I love this recipe is that it is filled with Sprinkles!

WHY DO THEY CALL THEM WHOOPIE PIES?

It’s not what you think!  It’s honestly because, according to legend, when kids would find these delicious treats in their lunch boxes, they would yell, “Whoopie!”  Originally these were also made from leftover cake batter. 

WHERE DID WHOOPIE PIES ORIGINATE?

It is believed that they originated in Pennsylvania Dutch country.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A WHOOPIE PIE AND A MOON PIE?

Whoopie pies are formed from two pieces of cake.  There is a lot of fluff in the middle.  Moon pies, however, are more like a cookie and also contain graham crackers.

Container of Whipped White Frosting
1 Egg
1 Stick Butter, softened
Food Coloring
Rainbow Pareils Sprinkles

Supplies Needed:

Spoon

Medium bowl

Mixer

Cookie sheet

Cup

Plastic baggie

Scissors

Tip: If you want to forgo making up frosting and the whole process of putting it into a plastic bag and worrying about if you cut the hole too big or not, may I suggest a product I recently discovered that I absolutely love? Pillsbury has came out with the a pastry bag filled with Vanilla frosting AND the tip is included too! They currently only have three flavors but I’m sure they will add more on!


Directions:


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
