 I made these yummy Red Velvet Whoopie pies for work last week and I got rave reviews! And they were from a box ha ha. Hey, cut a working girl some slack. Thanks to Mr. Duncan Hines a lot of people had happy taste buds!


  • 1 box Duncan Hines® Red Velvet Cake Mix
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 can Duncan Hines® Creamy Home-Style Classic Vanilla Frosting

Baking Instructions...

  1. Melt butter; set aside to cool. Place cake mix, egg, cooled butter and vanilla in large mixing bowl. Mix by hand until well blended and dough is formed.
  2. Form dough into a smooth 12-inch log on wax paper or parchment making sure it is even in thickness end to end. Wrap in wax paper; seal in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 1 hour or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease baking sheets. Unwrap dough log and set on wax paper. Using a sharp knife, cut into 48 slices about 1/4- inch thick. Place on cool baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in center of oven for 10 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool 1 minute. Transfer to wire rack to cool completely.
  5. Spread frosting on half the cookies. Top each frosted cookie with another cookie. Gently press together.

I used pink frosting to write initials and doodle designs- these were the ones for my merchandising team. The kitchen was pretty warm and the frosting decided to get all melty so things got ... interesting. But I highly recommend this recipe, box or not, its delicious!

Happy Baking!
