Chocolate Covered Cherry Whoopie Pies

Every time I think of chocolate covered cherries...I think of my parents on Valentine's Day.  In my 30 years, I'm pretty sure my mom has given my dad a box of chocolate covered cherries every single Valentine's.  When I started thinking of special treats to make on this special day, these instantly came to mind.  Whoopie Pies on Valentine's Day...it just makes perfect sense.

Shopping List
1 box chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup veggie oil
2 eggs
1/4 cup water
store bought cherry frosting
pink sprinkles, optional

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Combine cake mix, oil, eggs, and water in bowl.   
Drop by 2 tablespoons onto lined cookie sheet (leave about an inch between each cookie)

Bake 8-9 minutes

Cool on pan 5 minutes, move to wire rack and cool 15 more minutes.

Take one cookie and place a tablespoon or so of frosting in the center.  Press another cookie on top (this will spread the icing out to the edge).  Pour sprinkles into a shallow bowl...dip the edges of the whoopie pie in the sprinkles.

Happy Valentine's Day Mom and Dad!
