Every time I think of chocolate covered cherries…I think of my parents on Valentine’s Day. In my 30 years, I’m pretty sure my mom has given my dad a box of chocolate covered cherries every single Valentine’s. When I started thinking of special treats to make on this special day, these instantly came to mind. Whoopie Pies on Valentine’s Day…it just makes perfect sense.
1 box chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup veggie oil
1/4 cup water
store bought cherry frosting
pink sprinkles, optional
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Combine cake mix, oil, eggs, and water in bowl.
Drop by 2 tablespoons onto lined cookie sheet (leave about an inch between each cookie)
Bake 8-9 minutes
Cool on pan 5 minutes, move to wire rack and cool 15 more minutes.
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). Pour sprinkles into a shallow bowl…dip the edges of the whoopie pie in the sprinkles.
Happy Valentine’s Day Mom and Dad!
