Welcome to snackin' Saturday! I planted a cute title on today because it just so happens that today, July 21st, is national junk food day. An extra special thanks goes out to the super duper person who gets to come up with fun names for days. Way to go on the junk food, man!
It's also my brother Scott's birthday, and although we rarely see each other any more, I figured I would use his special day to make something festive and birthday looking. Like these whoopie pies!
I think sprinkles are an awesomesauce addition to any birthday food, don't you? I don't care if you're 9 or 90... the sight of sprinkles should bring a smile to your face and cause you to make babbly sounds. If it doesn't, please stand in the "I'm a grump" corner and wait your turn for a tickle torture.
Wanna know the BEST part about these whoopie pies? They're insanely quick and easy peasy to make because the base is a boxed cake mix. Please don't hate me because I used a shortcut. I know I have a culinary background and I should be making everything from scratch, but sometimes a girl like me needs a QUICK FIX in the sweets department. Baby oh baby does this dessert fit that requirement perfectly! In fact, if you're quick with a spoon and you don't mind warm icing between your cookies, you can have these whoopies in your mouth in less than 15 minutes! Now THAT'S something to WHOOP about!
