How To Make Snowman Whoopie Pies

Preparation: Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or you can use a whoopie pie pan like this one from Wilton (affiliate link). Set aside.

Snowman Whoopie Pies Cake Mixture

Make The Cake: Use an hand held mixer or stand mixer to mix together the cake mix, milk, oil and eggs in a large bowl until blended. Don't overmix batter.

Use a 2-inch cookie scoop and place the scoops on your lined baking sheet, at least 1½ inches apart from each other.

Snowman Whoopie Pies Cooling on Rack

Bake: Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely on wire rack.

Make the Buttercream Filling: With an electric mixer beat butter, confectioners’ sugar, milk and vanilla on medium speed. Gradually increase to high. The buttercream is ready once the filling is smooth and combined.

Adding Snowman Whoopie Pies Filling with knife

Use one bowl of buttercream as the filling of your whoopie pies. Use an offset spatula or piping bag to add buttercream on the backside of one cake and then sandwich it with another.

With the remaining buttercream use a piping bag to frost the top of each whoopie pie, filling it out completely.

Decorating Snowman Whoopie Pies

Make Snowman Nose: To make the snowmen’s "carrot" nose, shape your orange fondant into long, triangular shapes and place in the center of each frosted whoopie pie.

Recipe Tips

  • For a fancy bakery finish you can pipe the frosting evenly around inside the cookie instead of spreading with a spatula.
  • Use a cookie scoop to make the cookies as uniform as possible.
  • If you want a darker chocolate flavor use Devil's Food cake mix or Triple Chocolate Fudge.

Followed you on Instagram, etc. :) Anyway, I have just started a new linkup at my own blog and have been looking for a great recipe/foodie blogger to contribute. I'd love to have Recipes Simple there! You can drop links all day on Mondays at https://lifetalesbooks.blogspot.com/ if you're interested.)
