Halloween Whoopie Pies {Recipe}

I attempted to make whoopie pies for Landyn’s preschool Halloween party,

but they didn’t stand a chance with a couple sweet tooth’s in the house.

{Chris had polished off two before I even finished frosting them}


3 c sugar

1 c butter

4 eggs

1/2 c vegetable oil

1 tbsp vanilla extract

6 c flour

2 c cocoa powder

1tsp baking powder

1 1/2 tbsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

3 c milk

Frosting filling {Duncan Hines}


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Mix all dry ingredients.

Add eggs, sugar, butter, oil, vanilla, milk.

Scoop out spoonfuls and place on greased baking sheet 2 inches apart.

Gently flatten tops of balls with your spoon.

Bake for 7 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool completely.

Frost half of your pies with vanilla frosting

(Thanks Dunkin Hines)

Place remaining pies on top.


Fill a shallow bowl with desired amount of sprinkles.

Gently roll frosted whoppie pies in sprinkles until covered.
