Red Velvet Whoopie Pies
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 10 min./batch + cooling
I was looking for a portable treat to send to my daughters for their birthday. They love red velvet cake, and I know they will not be disappointed! The cakes are moist, rich, and delicious, and a beautiful color! The chocolate flavor really comes through. The filling is divine-recipe makes plenty to have nice full whoopie pies. I did not put chopped pecans on top. I ended up with fewer than 24 finished whoopie pies-I must have made mine bigger. Will definitely make again.
This is the easiest red velvet whoopie pie recipe I've come across, and it's fantastic! I made them for a coworker's birthday and they were a hit. The cookies are tender but hold up, you can taste the cocoa, and the filling is the perfect compliment. You can probably cut the filling down by 1/2 - I have a TON leftover which means I'll just put it to good use by baking up another batch of the cookies tonight!
OK. Better the next day. they are really small, like a little ball about 3" in diameter. They're a lot of work for something I didn't think tasted amazing, but like I said, they are better the next day. I prefer the red velvet cookie recipe with white chocolate chips- way easier and better tasting.
These are great. They have a great cocoa flavor. I have never made anything red velvet before, and I would consider them a success.
Very good. Made theses for a party and did not come home with any.
Pros: Very soft & moist.Cons: Red color is not right- comes out as a dirty, dark red. Not really flavorful.
YUMMY! What a treat! You need not use clear vanilla extract, regular vanilla extract works fine. If you own a silicone baking mat ("Silpat" as the brand name calls them) just use that & don't worry about the parchment paper. Do not overcook them!~ Theresa
