Amy and I were trying to figure out a valentine-ey craft for the boys to do on their play date this week, but everything I came across seemed really girly. I do know one thing these boys like and that is food (sweet food especially) and getting their hands messy! I searched hi and low to find a recipe that would involve the boys somehow without having them actually all up in our business while trying to bake. That is when our dear old friend Betty Crocker helped a momma out!!
I found this recipe for Mini Whoopie Pies. PERRRRRRFECT!!
I went ahead and baked up the cookies ahead of time and whipped up the filling so that way the boys could just assemble (play with) and eat!
I did make half of the batch with vanilla in the cookies and the other half with raspberry!!
Speaking of half a batch, half way through making these, my stinking hand mixer decided it wanted to half way break…. I was left mixing all of the filling and all of the vanilla cookies with only one beater!! hahaha it wasn’t easy but I finished!
Brooke napped the whole time so sorry, she isn’t present in any pictures, so I will share this one from yesterday when she was helping me make the filling.
