St. Patty’s Day Green Whoopie Pies
- 1 box Betty Crocker white cake mix, plus the ingredients to prepare
- McCormicks green food coloring extract
- 2 cans of frosting, your choice (we used chocolate!)
Whoopie pies recipe with cake mix
Prepare your cake mix as directed. Add about 50 drops of McCormick’s green food coloring extract to the mixture and stir until completely mixed. Grab a greased cookie sheet and SLOWLY pour cake the green batter into equal sized rounds. I emphasize slowly because the batter runs quickly, start small as the batter will spread. Mine came out pretty big, I wish they were smaller. Bake for about 10 minutes, remove from oven and let cool.
Liberally frost one of your whoopie pie halves on the flat side. Take another half and sandwich it on top of the frosting. At this point, you’re basically done, but you can add sprinkles and other fun garnish. You’re in whoopie pie heaven, such a delicious St. Patrick’s Day dessert!
Enjoy this tasty St. Patty’s Day green dessert!
These green whoopie pies turned out to be so good! I also made cute little shamrocks with my heart shaped cutter from FunBites. Just 3 little hearts (or 4 for good luck) can make such cute serving decor. I hope you like my St. Patrick’s Day ideas. Enjoy!
