Heart Shaped Red Velvet Whoopie Pies & a Simple Cream Cheese Frosting

Valentine’s Day is less than two weeks away, so I wanted to bring back one of my most popular Valentine’s Day Treats, “Heart Shaped Red Velvet Whoopie Pies“. These treats are so easy to make and this year, I topped them with the most delicious (and simple) cream cheese frosting!

In order to make the Red Velvet Whoopie Pies, you’ll need a box of Betty Crocker Cake Mix, eggs, water & oil. I followed this recipe from the Betty Crocker website.

You’ll need 3 eggs, 3/4 water & 1/2 cup oil and a box of pudding. The recipe called for chocolate, however, I used a box of vanilla..and it still turned out great! Mix that all up and then get your parchment paper ready.

You’ll want to cut out a heart shape out of construction paper or cardstock, this will serve as your guide as you are making the whoopie pies.

Take your parchment paper and trace the heart cutout in rows. I opted to go with 4 rows of 3. Once you have your hearts traced out on the parchment paper, place the paper on a cookie sheet.

The next thing you are going to want to do is fill a pastry bag or ziploc bag with your cake batter. I do not own a pastry bag, so I just dump the batter into a ziploc bag and cut the corner for a DIY pastry bag…aka the ghetto pastry bag. Hey..it works! :)

I then use my pastry bag and fill in the heart shapes that I traced out on the paper with batter. I start on the outer edge and then work my way in, until the entire heart is filled with batter.

Then place your cookie sheet into the oven at 350 and bake until the cake tops bounce back when you press on them.

Now that the whoopie pies are in the oven, you can concentrate on making the easiest cream cheese frosting….ever! All you need is some Marshmallow fluff, a brick of cream cheese and confectioner’s sugar. I used the recipe found here and cut it in half.

Once the whoopie pie tops are out of the oven and cooled, use the easy cream cheese frosting to make them into whoopie pies by frosting one side of a whoopie pie and placing another one on top of it…kinda like a sandwich :)
