Red Velvet Brownie Whoopie Pies

Nothing says HOLIDAY like Red Velvet Brownie Whoopie Pies with Cream Cheese filling.

Red Velvet Brownie Whoopie Pies made with BAILEYS Coffee Creamer

Have you seen the new flavors of coffee creamer from BAILEYS yet? Last month I shared a recipe that I created using the Pumpkin Spice creamer. Remember these shortbread bars?

Today, I’ve got another delicious recipe for you. I used the BAILEYS Red Velvet Cupcake Coffee Creamer (yes, as good as it sounds)!

And I hope you love it because I gained about ten pounds creating this recipe. I may not even be exaggerating!

You see, I needed to create a recipe that the BAILEYS team could travel with while on a marketing tour. So my first attempt was red velvet brownie bites. They were delicious. And gorgeous. But after about 4 recipe takes, I realized they wouldn’t travel well. See they had a pile of frosting on top of them that could easily smoosh. Right?

So back to the drawing board.

My mind went straight to whoopie pies.

But, the original brownie bite recipe I created did NOT make good whoopie pies. They were either flat. Or they didn’t have enough “chew.” My next try was too cake like. I wanted these whoopie pies to taste like a chewy brownie. A chewy RED VELVET brownie. After another 5 or 6 attempts (I am DEFINITELY NOT exaggerating), I hit the nail on the head! These whoopie pies are perfect.

And the cream filling? Well, please make sure each pie has a decent swirl of filling, it’s necessary for this dessert!

  1. Omg these look so good! I’m definitely going to make them for a Christmas party this weekend! I’ve looked everywhere for the baileys red velvet cupcake creamer and had no luck 🙁 where did you get it?

  2. Ohmygod there is a red velvet CREAMER out in the store RIGHT NOW?!? Excuse me while I run/skip all the way there and back so I can drink oodles of coffee and eat ALL these whoopie pies!

  3. What?! I know exactly who I would give these to! I’m not the hugest red velvet fan, but I have a friend who is. Even so, these look really good! Sandwich cookies always get me and I can’t say no to anything brownie!

  4. I haven’t made whoopie pies in forever. And I’ve never made red velvet anything yet. Looks like I need to get started soon! These look awesome, Aimee! 🙂

  5. I L-O-V-E anything Red Velvet!! These look quite delicious! and you are such a trooper!! If a recipe doesn’t come together for me after 2 or 3 tries I am DONE!!

    Oh, and as a side note, I didn’t know Baileys made coffee creamers. I thought this was some kind of Red Velvet liquor (Which I would have been totally fine with!! 😉
