Every year as the 4th of July draws near, we get big plans to make ALL the red, white and blue things-party decorations, fun foods, everything to make our holiday so festive. And inevitably we never have time to do all of the cute patriotic things that we could do for America’s birthday. That’s why we love this 4th of July dessert idea-it’s SO simple to make! All you need is a cake mix and a handful of ingredients and you can whip these up in under 30 minutes. And not only do they look cute, they taste AMAZING! Here’s our Patriotic Whoopie Pies for the 4th of July:
Doesn’t that make you so excited for all things red, white, and blue?!
And seriously-they are so easy to make! Let’s do it!
4th of July Dessert-Patriotic Whoopie Pies
- Prep Time: 10 min
- Cook Time: 10 min
- Total Time: 20 minutes
- 1 white cake mix
- 1 stick of butter (1/2 C)
- 1 egg
- Red, white and blue sprinkles
- Frosting (and food coloring to color it)
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
Combine your cake mix, butter and egg and mix till it forms a ball of dough.
Add your sprinkles and mix them in:
Roll small balls (about 1 inch) onto a cookie sheet.
Bake for about 8-10 minutes. Gently press them down when they come out of the oven so that they are pretty flat.
While they cool, grab your frosting and divide it into 3 bowls. Color one red, one blue and leave one white.
Pipe some frosting onto cookies (we use a Ziploc bag with frosting in it and just snip off one corner, then squeeze).
Then top with a second cookie and you’re good to go! Super easy right?
These will be so much fun to serve on the 4th of July or other patriotic holiday you want to celebrate!
Have FUN celebrating America!
