Snowman Whoopie Pies

Holiday cookies are great, don’t get me wrong, I am all about the decorated sugar cookies come November, man. But what if you decided to up the ante a little, and kick it up a notch? What if you decided that cookies and cakes and brownies were awesome, but whoopie pies were also slammin’, especially if they’re decorated all cute and adorably so like these Snowman Whoopie Pies. Who doesn’t want to receive a snowman face from someone? I am #teamsnowman all the way, friends.

How to Make Snowman Whoopie Pies

To make these whoopie pies, you’re going to need your favorite cake mix (this is mine) along with milk, oil, and eggs. For the buttercream icing and decorations, you’re going to need butter, confectioners’ sugar, milk, vanilla extract, black decorating frosting, and orange fondant.

Ingredients for Snowman Whoopie Pies

Mix up your cake batter and once combined well, roll the cake mix into 2-inch spheres on a lined cookie sheet.

Making Snowman Whoopie Pies

Bake your whoopie pies for 10 minutes at 350. Allow to cool completely. Beat butter, confectioners’ sugar, milk and vanilla on medium speed to make the buttercream, gradually increase to high until the ingredients are smooth and well-combined.

Baking Snowman Whoopie Pies

Fill your whoopie pies using an offset spatula to spread buttercream on the backside of one cake and then sandwich it with another.

Frosting Snowman Whoopie Pies

Scoop the remainder of your buttercream into a piping bag and frost the top of each whoopie pie, filling it out completely. Shape your orange fondant into long, triangular shapes as these will be your snowman’s “carrot” nose. Place each nose in the center of each frosted whoopie pie.

Decorating Snowman Whoopie Pies

Use your black decorating frosting to draw some eyes and a dotted smile. Ta-da! Your snowman whoopie pies are decorated and looking adorable!
