My daughter has an orange Tabby cat, his name is creamsicle, so 1 of the grand kids asked me to make some for his birthday, ( of course he couldn't have any,) so they could celebrate. Yeah...right! hahaha, they just love my whoopie pies, lol.

How to Make Creamsicle whoopie pies w/ marshmallow filling

Step-by-Step

  1. In large bowl, mix cake mix as directed, w/ the ingredients listed on the box, except add dry jello mix & orange juice. Preheat oven as directed on box. Spray a small ice cream scooper w/ a little cooking spray.
  2. If the batter is too sticky, add a little of the flour mentioned in this recipe. Set parchment papers on several cookie sheets. With the ice cream scooper, scoop 1" balls of dough onto a cookie sheet. Sprinkle the orange colored sprinkles on every other scooped ball. (These will be the tops.)
  3. Bake 9-11 minutes, or until slightly firm to the touch. Let cool a minute or 2 then remove to racks to fully cool. In medium bowl, Beat Crisco, Fluff, 1Tbsp orange juice, powdered sugar & 1 tsp vanilla, until smooth. Once cookies are cool, place about 1 Tbsp, ( or more, depending on how full you want them,) of filling onto every other cookie, ( these will be the bottoms,) Spread w/ a spoon. Place the tops w/ the sprinkles over the bottoms w/ the filling, press down lightly. I usually put them in a long, wide container w/ parchment paper in between & on top, so they don't stick together, but, alas, I had none left to put away since everyone ate them right away! lol.
