Chocolate Candy Cane Whoopie Pies


chocolate candy cane whoopie pie

Shopping List

  • 1 box chocolate cake mix
  • 1/2 cup veggie oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup water
  • store bought peppermint frosting* (don’t panic if you can’t find any…read below!)
  • 1/2 cup peppermint crunch candy (or crushed up candy canes)


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
    2. Combine cake mix, oil, eggs, and water in bowl.
    3. Drop by 2 tablespoons onto lined cookie sheet (leave about an inch between each cookie)
    4. Bake 8-9 minutes
    5. Cool on pan 5 minutes, move to wire rack and cool 15 more minutes.
    6. Meanwhile, put your canned peppermint frosting in a bowl and stir in crunch.
    7. Take one cookie and place a tablespoon or so of frosting in the center.  Press another cookie on top (this will spread the icing out to the edge).

*If you can’t find peppermint frosting, then stir 2 teaspoons of peppermint extract into vanilla frosting.
