This Easy Red Velvet Whoopie Pie Recipe will be the hit of any party. Red Velvet is THE hot flavor. Everyone is making it, everyone is eating it.
Why? (are you kidding?)
Because it’s totally delicious!! Seriously… this is chocolate in a pretty outfit. YUM!
Now… a big cake is a lot of work for a little snack (plus it is a hassle to fit into a lunch box…) and red velvet cupcakes have been done so often that they’ve been all but BANNED from Cupcake Wars (yes I watch, totally addicted to it…. and on some days, I’m sure I can win… other days? I figure there is no way I can make a 1000 sushi cupcakes…)
Back to Red Velvet… Love the flavor… but what is a good way to get that flavor in a convenient, easy to carry, not totally overdone way? Easy…
Red Velvet Whoopie Pies …you have to love a dessert that has such a happy name.
Although seriously, we could call these – Incredible Vanishing Pies- I made 2 batches this weekend, and they are gone gone gone (just a few mysterious crumbs left in the storage box…)
