Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

Whenever the holiday season rolls around I always feel the urge to bake – which is good for my friends and family, not so good for my diet.  This weekend I was inspired by a classic tasty treat I saw at the grocery store – a Whoopie Pie.  But, I wanted to mix it up a bit.  So rather than choose the usual chocolate mix, I opted for a Red Velvet mix instead.  Not only did they turn out super tasty, but the red color really put me into the holiday spirit.
