Bake up a batch of these easy Chocolate Whoopie Pies just in time for the holiday season. Soft chocolate cookies sandwiched together with a thick frosting filling and covered in sprinkles make a delicious addition to your cookie tray!


  • 1 box Chocolate Devil’s Food cake mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ cup water

For the filling:

  • 2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼ cup vegetable shortening (Crisco)
  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • sprinkles (optional)


    1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, set aside.
    2. In a mixing bowl, blend dry cake mix, eggs, and water together until well blended.
    3. Using a metal cookie scoop, drop batter onto parchment paper, leaving several inches between whoopie pies.
    4. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until centers are set. Allow to cool before making sandwiches.
    5. To prepare filling, place milk and flour in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir continuously until it thickens. Remove from heat and cool.
    6. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter, vegetable shortening, and sugar together until fluffy.
    7. Next, beat in milk/flour mixture. If filling is a bit runny, chill before using.
    8. Make whoopee pies by using two cookies and filling with cream.
    9. If you choose to add sprinkles, place them in a bowl and roll the pies in them before setting.


  • The filling tastes like what you would expect in a Hostess ding dong or swiss cake roll. Not overly sweet.
  • If you prefer a sweet buttercream filling, beat ¼ cup softened butter with 2 cups powdered sugar, ½ tsp vanilla, and 2 Tbsp milk until fluffy. Pipe between two chocolate cookies.
