Candy Cane Whoopie Pies

I just adore our little elf Scout.  I mean, how fantastic is it that we both love the exact same things!?!?  When he left the littles the fixins for Candy Cane Whoopie Pies we couldn’t wait to get started.

December 2013 382 copy

All you need is a box of Chocolate Peppermint Cookie Mix and a tub of vanilla icing. 
- Prepare and bake the cookie dough as directed.  As soon as they come out of the oven, top half of them with the candy cane pieces. 
- Once they are completely cooled, have your littles spread the plain half of the cookies with vanilla icing and then top with one of cookies decorated with candy canes. 
- Sprinkle more candy cane pieces around the edges and you’re done!



As much as I hated to part with them, we even bagged up a couple for sweet friend M as a pick-me-up when she had the PCP spend the night last weekend.

As an aside, it’s worth mentioning that I do kind of have a thing for chocolate peppermint desserts.  When I was pregnant with the baby, I guzzled down a Chick-fil-A Peppermint Chocolate Chip milkshake every.single.day during the holidays.  (Do you know how many calories are in one of those?  If not, DON’T LOOK.)  It was obscene.  So much so that I ordered TWO on Saturdays since they are closed on Sundays.  It’s no wonder that the baby was nine pounds and a whole week early.

Those peppermint chocolate chip milkshakes - who could resist? They are SUPER yummy! We'll have to try these whoopie pies!

These are adorable! I'm in need of a quick something for tomorrow and these fit the bill perfectly. Do the candy cane pieces come with the mix or should I pick up some candy canes, too? I love peppermint and chocolate, too. Thanks so much for sharing!

I love peppermint and chocolate together and our Christmas kitchen is well stocked with peppermint m&ms, peppermint Oreos, and peppermint creamer to stir into hot cocoa. The BEST!!!!

Love the whoopies, but I need your chocolate cover popcorn recipe! I couldnt find it when I searched popcorn. Could you be a doll and run it again? The kiddos on the block loved it and so did my big kiddos! Merry Christmas to you and your family!

I just got my free "Christmas Truth or Dare" game out of my mailbox. Thank you so much! I can't wait to bring it out on Christmas Eve during dinner with my husband, kids, parents, brother and sister-in-law. It will be so much fun!!

Oh my gosh - those look divine!!
And I had to laugh about your shakes when pregnant…..I had terrible morning-noon-and night sickness with my first, and someone told me coffee milkshakes were the trick to beating it…..so I went forth and had a milkshake EVERY single day from there on out! Now I think I might need a peppermint chocolate chip one…...

Yummy. I have to figure out a way to make a gluten free version. Baby girl loves whoopie pies, but we haven't had them in awhile. Should be easy to duplicate. I already have some of the peppermint candy pieces. Oh, and I crave peppermint ice cream this time of year!
