Chocolate Valentine Whoopie Pies… are quick and easy from a cake mix and a lot of fun to make with the kids too. Enjoy!

Happy Friday!  I’ve had a busy couple of days helping my daughter recover from getting her wisdom teeth removed.  SO, I didn’t get a post up yesterday… I guess that’s how it goes sometimes :)

Love,

Ruthie

    Hey Ruthie! Do you by any chance remember how big these were once baked? A teaspoon of batter seems like such a small amount for what looks like a HUGE whoopie pie…but the photo may just be playing tricks on my eyes :) I might bake these this weekend and was just trying to visualize how wide they’d be. Thanks a bunch!

      Hi Maggie… it’s hard to believe that they grow to be so large but, they do! Finished cookies is probably 2 1/2 inches across AND they’re to-die-for… just sayin’ :) Thanks for the nice comment xoxo~ Ruthie
