Christmas Whoopie Pies


We love a simple and cute project for the holidays-something that brings a smile to faces and is easy to do. This project could be a perfect party idea or something fun to do with the kids. Or make them and take them to a friend. They taste great AND they’re super cute! Win win! It’s our Christmas Whoopie Pies-reindeers and snowmen!

Christmas Whoopie Pies for Kids

Seriously-how easy and cute are those? Definitely something that little hands can take part in too if you want!

 

Christmas Whoopie Pies:

Reindeer Cookies:

Ingredients Needed:

  • Chocolate cake mix
  • 1 stick of butter (1/2 C), softened
  • 1 egg
  • Frosting
  • Small pretzels
  • Edible Eyes
  • Red Candy (nose)

Instructions:

Bake the cookies as follows:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cake mix, butter and egg and mix till dough forms. Roll into small, 1 inch balls. Bake for 8-10 minutes.

After the cookies cool, grab your frosting and frost one cookie. (We like to use a Ziploc and squirt some on a cookie.) Then sandwich a second cookie on top.

Gently stick your pretzels in between the two cookies, far enough that they are in the frosting.

Using a tiny bit of frosting, add your eyes and nose.

And he’s done!

Use a small amount of frosting to add the eyes and mouth. For the nose, find a candy corn with orange on the tip and cut off just that part. (Or just cut the white off a tip if needed.) Use that for your nose.

And enjoy!
