Superbowl Delicious: Football-Shaped Whoopie Pies

I know, I know. I’m a disgrace to women everywhere. Guys, there are lots of girls who care more about the game than the snacks and the commercials on Superbowl Tuesday (that’s a joke, I know the Superbowl is on Saturday). Don’t judge them according to my new obsession with these little football cookies that make me feel like a real fan.

Great, now that that’s out of the way: Check out these football whoopie pies! They’re adorable and delicious, and they’ll make you feel like a real fan!

Food blogger Sarah Sprague of Make Merry Events edited this Bon Appetít recipe for pumpkin whoopie pies with maple-marshmallow cream filling by using dark brown sugar instead of golden, and sifting a quarter cup of cocoa powder into the dry mix. A few extra steps, and voila, your pumpkin batter is football-colored.

Meanwhile, an egg-shaped baking tin and a little creative icing will carry you the rest of the way to these adorable football munchies.

Check out the full recipe here while I try to fake my way to a football-related joke to close. Just give me a second.

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.
