Whoopie Pies.

Ok, sorta whoopie pies.

But please save the “these aren’t realllllyy whoopie pies” comments. I know. You know. We know.

(Feelin’ a little feisty today ;) can you tell?)

But they kind of look like whoopie pies, which is close enough for me. Mock whoopie pies. There we go.

Like the mock ice cream pops made a little while back.

There’s something a little special about these cookies though. They aren’t like your normal cookie. They are made out of a cake mix, yep! They produce a soft, chewy, brownie-like, mmm(!) Cake Cookie! You just add less liquids to the cake mix…
