St. Patrick’s Day Green Whoopie Pies

Ingredients

  • 1 box white cake mix, plus the ingredients to prepare
  • Green food coloring
  • 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.
