Impress Your Friends with these Red Velvet Whoopie Pies! A box of cake mix, some flour and a tub of frosting are the only things you need to make this delicious recipe!

I was cleaning out my cabinets recently and came across a box of red velvet cake mix. I don’t even remember buying it to be honest, but it was getting close to the expiration date so I figured I better use it up before it went bad. I originally thought about making cupcakes out of it, but when I went grocery shopping a tub of cream cheese frosting caught my eye and all of the sudden a light bulb went off. I was going to use the cake mix to whip up some yummy Red Velvet Whoopie Pies.

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 box of Red Velvet cake mix
  • 1/2 Cup of Flour
  • Tub of Cream Cheese frosting

Here’s what you do:
1. Mix the Red Velvet Cake Mix according to the directions on the box. Add 1 cup of flour to the mixture because that make the mixture a bit thicker – and that’s exactly the consistency you need for a good whoopie pie!

I know, this was kind of a shortcut because I used cake mix instead of making them from scratch, but hey – I am a busy mom. Sometimes I don’t have time for that and like I said, I did have the cake mix to use up anyways.
