Valentine’s Day is next week. So, make some plans for a romantic evening, make treats for the kids' class parties, or just use it as an excuse to make a sweet treat for yourself.

But, if you're a mom like me and have been asked to help out with the class Valentine’s Day party, you're probably trying to come up with a fun and simple treat to make.  This week, I have a fun one.  So, skip the cookies and the store bought cupcakes and let's make some Whoopie Pies!

This is a great recipe too.  While most recipes for Whoopie Pies have you make your 'pie' from scratch, this one uses a cake mix, which really helps quickens the pace.  And to jazz it up a bit, roll the assembled pies like a wheel on a plate of red sprinkles.  The sprinkles with stick to the filling and make them look pretty darn cute!
