We are always looking for fun ways to celebrate holidays as a family. On St. Patrick’s Day. We love to celebrate being Irish with the rest of the world. We start our day with Irish Soda bread and parades and finish it with a dinner of corn beef and cabbage. For dessert, no one ever argues about a yummy, mint filled, chocolate treat and these whoopie pies fit that bill perfectly.
While the cakes are baking and cooling, have everyone help make the filling. If you don’t like mint, you can always swap out the mint extract for vanilla.
This recipe is a great way to have even the little ones help out in the kitchen. Have the kids be in charge of rolling the sides in sprinkles for a little extra decorations.
The pies can be made up ahead of time. After you have filled and rolled your pies in sprinkles, place them in a plastic storage bag or an airtight container in the refrigerator. When you are ready to serve them, dust the tops with powdered sugar for a finishing touch.
Whoopie Pies are the perfect dessert to end a day full of fun.
