I'm so excited about this little creation I just whipped up today. SO excited. I just had to share it with you right away.
Can you tell it is a rainy day with nothing better to do than blog?
This recipe my friends is against all things I believe baking to be.
But I just couldn't help it.
It's genius really.
I've seen recipes floating around blogsphere that use 2 or 3 ingredients to create, cookies, brownies, and cakes but never whoopie pies. I had to jump on the bloggy train and try these simple non recipe, recipes out.
These have only 3 ingredients.
People did you read that.....THREEEEEEE!!
All 3 just so happen to be something I vow to never buy. When I do I cringe a little on the inside.... in a minute you'll see why. In fact I think I have even talked about my dislike for these 3 ingredients before.
I know you are all dying to know what the three are so here... I will let you in on my secret.
Orange Creamsicle Whoopie Pies
1 box vanilla cake mix
1 cup of orange soda
1 container of cool whip
In a bowl mix cake mix and soda together.
Drop into 1 tbs heaps onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
Let cool and with a spatula remove from cookie sheet.
On the bottom of one cookie dollop 1-2 tbs of cool whip in the center.
Top with a 2nd cookie.
Store in the refrigerator.
*** These are so good just like this BUT you can up the orange flavor if you'd like by adding 1 tsp of orange extract into the cake mix.
*** Another blogger friend tried these last night with a Gluten Free Cake mix... it did not work. So those of you that use a gluten free mix... I wouldn't try this one at home! And after some more thought after talking with the other blogger, I strongly suggest if you want an extra orange flavor... use a tsp of orange extract.
Now I have half a bottle of soda to dump down the drain. I swear it's the devil. But so worth buying so I could make these easy peasy whoopie pies
