Red Velvet Whoopie Pies

I wanted to do something different than the usual cupcakes. Another momma made pumpkin whoopie pies so she got me thinking about those. No pumpkin mix in this house at the moment but I had some red velvet mix & cream cheese frosting sounded so good. For the cake part I followed the instructions on the box minus about a 1/4 cup of water & added 1 tsp of vanilla extract. Preheat oven at 350 degrees F. Place about 1tbsp of mix onto a cookie sheet. Cook for about 10 minutes. Let cool.

Onto the super duper yummy icing...

3/4 cup butter, softened
4 oz cream cheese, softened
1/8 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-2 tablespoons milk (I used 1 tbsp
2-4 cups powdered sugar (I used 3 cups)

Blend together the butter & cream cheese. Add in the brown sugar & vanilla extract. Blend. Add in 2 cups of the powdered sugar, blend on low. Add in, alternating, the milk & powdered sugar - depending on your desired consistency.

Place icing on 1 cake piece & top with a second. Enjoy!
