This classic dessert is made with two soft, fluffy red velvet cakes sandwiching a rich and creamy filling. It’s perfect for sharing with family and friends – or keeping all to yourself!

Whoopie Pie vs. Moon Pie

There is some debate about whether whoopie pies are the same as moon pies. While they share many similarities – both are made with two soft cookies sandwiching a filling – there are some key differences.

For one, whoopie pies are typically smaller than moon pies. They also generally have a more cake-like texture, while moon pies are more cookie-like. And of course, whoopie pies are made with red velvet cake, while moon pies are not.

Whether you call it a whoopie pie or a moon pie, one thing is for sure – this dessert is delicious! So if you’re in the mood for something sweet this holiday season, give it a try.

Red Velvet Whoopie Pie Recipe

There are many different ways to make a red velvet whoopie pie, but our favorite recipe is super simple and only requires a few ingredients.

You’ll need:

  • Flour
  • Hershey cocoa powder
  • Baking powder
  • Kosher salt
  • Unsalted sweet cream butter, softened
  • Light brown sugar
  • Large egg
  • Pure vanilla extract
  • Buttermilk
  • Red gel food coloring

Vanilla frosting

  • Unsalted sweet cream butter, softened
  • Powdered sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • Heavy whipping cream
  • Piping bag with large round tip
  • Christmas sprinkles
  • Mickey mouse head cookie stencil
  • Powdered sugar

First, preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray a whoopie pie pan with Pam baking spray or your choice of non-stick spray.

Next, in a medium bowl whisk the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt together. Then using a stand mixer or hand mixer, beat the butter, light brown sugar, egg, and vanilla until combined and fluffy.

Gently stir in the buttermilk and red gel food coloring until evenly mixed. Slowly add in the dry ingredients until they are mixed together and there are no lumps. Use a spoon to add the batter to the wells of the pan, filling each with about 2 tablespoons of batter.

Cook in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. Then allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing onto a wire rack

Repeat these steps to bake the rest of the batter and allow to cool completely.

Using a standing mixer, beat the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and heavy whipping cream until

combined, smooth and holds a peak. Next, scoop the vanilla frosting into the piping bag.

Now it’s time to assemble the whoopie pies! For each one, take two red velvet cakes and spread a generous amount of the vanilla filling in between them. Once all the pies are assembled and before the frosting sets, roll the whoopie pie in the sprinkles or spoon them over the edges. Repeat with all of the cookies.

Place the stencil on top of the whoopie pie and dust powdered sugar on top. Then carefully remove the stencil. Sprinkle some with a Mickey head and some with the outline of Mickey for a variety.

Enjoy your adorable cookies immediately or store them in the fridge for later.

To make these in February, use a heart shaped sprinkles or white and red jimmies for a sweet touch.
