Celebrate More With Pillsbury Baking – Peppermint Kissed Whoopie Pies


Pillsbury Whoopie Pies (9) We’re still celebrating more all year long and this Valentine’s Day we’re celebrating more love. That means taking more one on one moments with one another and that includes baking in the kitchen.

Using Pillsbury® Baking products we easily create special treats and even better sweet memories in the kitchen. Nothing says love quite like chocolate and Pillsbury Baking Dark Chocolate Cake creates a rich and flavorful treat. To create our own whoopie pies we started with our cake mix. I found this heart shaped pan at my local craft store and it’s perfect for Valentine’s Day treats.

Pillsbury Whoopie Pies (1) Since you’re not making a full cake I suggest start baking at 8 minutes at 350 degrees. Remember to grease your pan.

Pillsbury Whoopie Pies (2) Once baked allow your cakes to cool on a wire rack.

I wanted a simple cream filling so I used a heavy cream. I also used Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Peppermint Frosting. A light layer of frosting is all each cake needs. Add the cream and top!

Pillsbury Whoopie Pies (3) You’ll want to allow these to cool for another hour. These simple peppermint kissed whoopie pies are an easy way to celebrate more sweet moments with the ones you love most.

    I have more and less that I am working really hard to achieve. I want to be more patient, understanding, compassionate and kind. Less judgmental, abrupt, and time consumed. I hope this makes me a better person so I can be better to all.

  11. Nicole Newby says

    I just started a new job so I am looking forward to getting to enjoy more time out of the house. I have been a stay at home mom of 1 for the last 2 years. I think this will help my relationship with my husband too.

  12. kim says

    We literally just had a unexpected death in the family a few days ago at a young age and we were talking about this very thing how we take life for granted until it is too late I am going to try to take every day for what it is, try not to sweat the small stuff, and as a family we vowed to do at least one fun outing a month together!! I hope it doesn’t get away from me again!
