In honor of Valentine's Day, Bugs and Squirrel helped me make Red Velvet Whoopie Pies. Nothing is better then Whoopie Pies, just ask my boys!
Well, I can't argue either. Chocolate cake and filling....right up there with chocolate and peanut butter.
You'll need a variety of ingredients, but the most important thing to do is make sure you have plenty of red food coloring. This recipe calls for 1 Tablespoon of red food coloring. That was more than I had on hand, so I made to make a quick trip to town.
The wet ingredients for the Red Velvet Whoopie Pies. An important note, make sure to watch the red food coloring! If it splashes on your counter top or you, clean it up immediately! It can stain!
Also, I didn't have clear vanilla extract, so I used the regular dark liquid and my whoopie pies came out fine!
The dry ingredients for the whoopie pies.
The batter with the melted chocolate slightly stirred in. Does this not look absolutely delicious!! My mouth was watering at this point!
One baked whoopie pie, just waiting for it's buddy and some delicious filling!
Sorry, I have not pictures of the filling, but it's pretty easy to make!
The finished product. Heaven!
By this time, the drool was running down both sides of my mouth. I am a woman who LOVES sweets!
