Today’s Spiderweb Whoopie Pies recipe is a perfect way to end any Halloween celebration and to end this weeks posts of Halloween recipes. Chocolaty cookies filled with sweet and fluffy orange flavored filling, finished off with a spooky icing spiderweb. I had to try these out after seeing them in a recent Redbook issue. They look so cool!
It all starts with a cake mix which is always a fabulous way to begin in my book. The filling is make with butter, cream cheese, and marshmallow fluff – a deadly but delicious triple combination. Not only is the filling orange in color, but it also has a light orange flavor thanks to a little orange extract. If you don’t have the orange extract, just use some vanilla extract in it’s place. Then you create a simple spider web with a powder sugar glaze. I also purchased spider rings to add to the whoopie pies. I just cut off the ring part and set them on top of the spiderweb whoopie pies.
