Lemony Gingerbread Whoopie Pies Exps Hplz17 50509 C06 02 5b 4

Lemony Gingerbread Whoopie Pies

Just like all the foods that are salty and sweet, lemon and gingerbread is one of those combinations you don’t think would work… but totally does. And if the citrusy-yet-spicy flavor doesn’t win you over, the crunchy coating (you roll these in sugar before baking) definitely will.

Fruity Pebbles Whoopie PiesMy Baking Addiction

Fruity Pebbles Whoopie Pies

Breakfast for dinner is great, but have you heard of breakfast for dessert? If not, time to think outside the box. The cereal box, that is! While these colorful confections are dipped in Fruity Pebbles, you could substitute any cereal you’d like.
