Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopie Pies

I’m sure you can find healthier and fancier options out there, but the quick/easy factor of this version makes it one of our favorite Sunday night treat recipes!



2 pkg devils food cake mix
1 1/2 cup shortening
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

Combine ingredients.  Roll into 1 inch balls.  Bake 8 to 10 minutes at 375 degrees.


  • 1 1/3 cup creamy peanut butter
    2 sticks (1 cup) butter, at room temperature
    2 ½ cups powdered sugar
  • Beat together until smooth.
  • I like to pipe the filling with a big star tip so that it looks fancy when it smooshes out.

Please follow and like us:


  1. I think I am drowning in drool….

  2. My stomach just growled. Big time. Those look uh.mazing.

  3. Oh I make these on occasion. They are SINFUL. I’ve found that if you flatten the cookie out quite a bit before baking, they stay nice and flat afterward. Also, they are divine as ice cream sandwich “bread.”

  4. And they are also delish with peppermint filling and hot chocolate.

  5. My two favorite words were “butter” and “shortening”. Sure you can make things more healthy, but they never taste as good without those two ingredients! Yum.

  6. You had me at peanut butter. Anything with both chocolate and peanut butter is THE BOMB. I am going to make these this weekend. Thanks for sharing.

  7. that’s a fun one to try. i’ve also made them with a lemon cake and lemon frosting. so yummy!

  11. Stop it… these look incredible. Have I told you? Me, chocolate, & peanut butter… we’re like this: *2 fingers side by side*. I will definitely be making these.

  12. Okay, is it crazy that you posted this yesterday and I already made them?! This recipe was SO easy. I made them just now during nap time and my baby is still sleeping…which means I get to eat them without sharing!!! Thanks!
