This past week, I was ask to shop the bake center aisle at Walmart then create a New Year’s dessert. I already had in mind what I planned to make. I wanted to do something simple, quick, and tasty since I have been baking so much for Christmas.
I have shopped the bake center aisle many times this Christmas season and I love it for a few reasons, mainly because it’s convenient and near the front of the store and secondly because all of the new merchandise is displayed there.
The day that I went in the store to get my supplies for the whoopie pies they were actually taking down the bake center aisle and replacing it with quick dinners such as tacos and sides to go with them as well as spaghetti with sauce and cheese to go with it. I was still able to quickly find what I was looking for since the associates were in the process of moving all the items back to the baking aisle; however, I was sad to see it go too.
On this trip I picked up all my ingredients and then headed home to get started on the whoopie pies. I would love to say that my husband and I have some type of extravagant party for New Year’s but really many times it’s rare if we even make it up till midnight.
Our typical New Year’s Eve is a movie marathon along with lots of good eats! I know these whoopie pies will be perfect for our night in! They would also be perfect if you do throw a big New Year’s party!
New Year’s Whoopie Pies
- 1 Box Devil's Food Cake Mix
- 3 Eggs
- 3/4 Cup Water
- 1/2 Cup Oil
- 2 Containers of Whipped Vanilla Frosting
- Gold and Silver Sprinkle Gems
- Preheat the oven to 350*.
- Combine the cake mix, eggs, water, and oil in a large mixing bowl.
- On a greased cookie sheet or using a whoopie pan, pour the batter into small circles. I had enough batter to make 30 circles which made 15 whoopie pies. I made mine larger, so you may be able to make more depending on the size of your circles.
- Bake these in the oven for 15 minutes. To be sure they are done insert a toothpick and if it comes out clean remove them from the oven.
- Let them cool completely on a wire rack.
- Once completely cooled, apply a large portion of icing to the bottom of one side then add another one to make a sandwich.
- In a small bowl mix a little bit of the gold and silver, then roll the side of the whoopie pie in it to coat the icing.
- Continue to do this with each one until you have made all your whoopie pies.
