Cake Batter Cookie Cake Pie with Cake Batter Ice Cream

If you could only eat one flavor of dessert for the rest of your life, what would it be? If you said cake batter, this recipe is for you.

Two boxes of cake mix equals four distinct layers of cake batter awesomeness with a side of cake batter goodness. Let’s break it down: cake mix crust, birthday cake cookies, cake, cake mix frosting, and cake mix ice cream. Now this recipe is a bit a more complex than what I usually get myself into, but, oh man, is it worth the extra effort. Get ready, cuz here it comes:

Cool Whip Funfetti Whoopie Pies

“You can’t have a pie [whoopie or otherwise] without Cool Hwhip.” –Stewie Griffin

Have you been contemplating trying out a Whoopie Pie recipe only to be overwhelmed by the number of ingredients and the work involved? I have a solution!

A. Come visit me, and I shall bake some for you! Or save the gas money and…

B. Follow this quick and easy recipe:

Bunny trail: I tried to combine “quick and easy” to form a new word, but all I came up with was “queasy” and “easick.”  Yea, not what I’m going for. Anypie…

This recipe only has 6 ingredients: Funfetti cake mix, Cool Whip, eggs, nonpareils sprinkles, more cake mix and…more Cool Whip. I suppose that’s technically 4 ingredients, but the “more” cake mix and Cool Whip are kind of a separate entity. You’ll see.

Cool Whip Funfetti Whoopie Pies
(makes about 20 pies)

Ingredients

– 1 box Funfetti cake mix

– 1 tub (8oz) Cool Whip, thawed

– 2 eggs

– Lots and lots of nonpareils

– ½-3/4c cake mix, sifted (Wondering what to do with the left over cake mix? How about this, this, or this.)

– 1 tub (8oz) Cool Whip, thawed

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prep baking sheets with parchment.

2. Mix box of Funfetti cake mix, tub of Cool Whip and 2 eggs until combined.

3. Chill dough for an 30 minutes to an hour.

4. Using your 1.5T cookie scoop, scoop in to balls.

5. Rolls those cookies in the nonpareils and place on cookie sheet.

6. Bake for 13 to 15 minutes. Remove from sheet and let cool on cooling rack.

7. Meanwhile, mix remaining tub of Cool Whip and extra cake mix. (You’ll have to decide how cake-y you want the Cool Whip to taste).

8. Spread the cake-y Cool Whip between two Funfetti cookies and you are good to go.

Oh my gosh, this is like eating a crunchy cloud filled with the hopes and dreams of little children.

I like the versatility of this recipe. If Funfetti isn’t your bag, you can use your favorite flavor cake mix. Not into nonpareils? Roll the balls of cookie dough in powdered sugar, cinnamon sugar, cocoa, etc. However you choose to personalize these pies, I’m sure the results will be just as awesome.
