Devil’s Food Holiday Whoopie Pies…and a Giveaway
I like easy things.
I especially like easy things that are delicious.
Whoopie Pies are delicious.
Now – Whoopie Pies, or rather, Devil’s Food Holiday Whoopie Pies, are both…easy AND delicious.
This is all thanks to Pillsbury and their Celebration Starters.
Yeah, go with me on this one.
Box Mix. Embrace it. It’s Holiday Eve, everyone is cooking and baking and cleaning and shopping and crying and running the heck out of time because AhmmaGawd, we all need The Minecraft Legos and they are SOLD OUT at the WALMART.
Take it easy on yourself and embrace the box mix.
For these whoopie pies, I used the Pillsbury Devil’s Food Cake Mix. Devil’s Food has always been my go to mix – it’s rich, it’s chocolate, and it’s just plain good. But mixed with cream cheese and vanilla? Hello, full on goodness. Sandwich these bad boys with Pillsbury Vanilla Icing (in GREEN, and rolled in Sprinkles) you look like someone who has time to knot all our own ornaments. You look like a Pinterest Success. You look like the Homeroom Mom who still has time to book a pedicure and facial.
No, I don’t embellish.
Make them. See for yourself.
Devil’s Food Holiday Whoopie Pies
- 1 box Pillsbury Devil’s Food Cake Mix
- 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 1/4 cup butter, softened
- 1 large egg
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 can Pillsbury Icing (I used Green Vanilla with Sprinkles)
- Preheat oven to 350. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or Silpat. Set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine cake mix, cream cheese, butter, egg, and vanilla. Mix on medium speed until thoroughly combined.
- Using a spring loaded cookie scoop, place scoops of cake mix onto prepared cookie sheet. Flatten each scoop slightly with your fingers – cookies will not spread much.
- Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.
- Remove from oven and allow to cool. Repeat with remaining batter until all cookies are made.
- Once cooled, fill cookies with Pillsbury icing of choice. If desired, roll edges in holiday sprinkles. Keep cookies in airtight container.

Dump a bunch of frozen berries in a baking dish, sprinkle a box of dry Pillsbury yellow cake mix on top and top with a melted stick of butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or so and you have a hot homemade cobbler that will have your guests asking for the recipe! Top it off with homemade ice cream and they think you’re a kitchen goddess! Thanks, Pillsbury, for making me look good!

I’ve made a pumpkin spice cake that was just the cake mix and a can of pumpkin, once cooked topped with whipped cream that was spiked with pudding mix. Unbelievably easy and very tasty!
