Funfetti Whoopie Pies

This post is sponsored in conjunction with Back to School Treats Week. I received product samples from sponsor companies to aid in the creation of the #BacktoSchoolTreats Week recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

Whoopie pies are a New England staple.  You can find them in a variety of different flavors, textures and fillings.   Some like the cakey kind, some like the kind that are more cookie-like, but we like them all!

I always start with my Gram's base recipe, which uses a cake mix, eggs, some oil (I used canola), and vanilla.  I am completely in love with Taylor & Colledge's Vanilla Bean Paste. It's made with 100% real vanilla beans, and has such an awesome smell and flavor.  I chose a yellow cake mix this time around.


I amped up the fun level by adding cute Sweets & Treats sprinkles to the dough. They have so many amazing colors and shapes that I had a hard time choosing, but in the end I went with the ABC123 mix.   I used a cookie scoop to get nice uniform rounds.

 
You can use store bought frosting or make your own, totally up to you.  This time around I used pre-made white frosting, and after I sandwiched everything together, I rolled them through the sprinkles.  You can never have enough sprinkles!


Thank you so much to Sweets & Treats, Taylor & Colledge and all of our other amazing #BacktoSchoolTreats Week sponsors!  Be sure to go and enter for your chance to win one of the awesome prize packages down below.
