Whoopie Pies from Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Bread Mix

We had our family pictures on Sunday, after the 20 minutes of chaos trying to get 3 kids to somewhat smile or look like they liked each other, we went over to Trader Joe's for a dash more of craziness. Thankfully this time only the middle child was interested in pushing the tiny cart, countless heels were spared having just one kid on the loose!

I really enjoy Trader Joe's... I still find it hard to shop and never know what to try, that's where my mother-in-law comes to the rescue. Trader Joe's should pay her to walk around the store as a shopper and talk up products. 99% of the things I bring home are her recommendations.  One thing that I wait for each fall is the Pumpkin Bread and Muffin Mix. I am not above telling you that I use box mixes from time to time... I picked up 2 boxes of my beloved pumpkin bread mix and went straight home to whip up whoopie pies.

To make these fabulous little snacks, I followed the directions on the box and used my whoopie pie pan that is on lone from my mom. I found that baking them at 8 minutes was the perfect length of time. Once they were out of the oven and cooled, I whipped up some Cream Cheese Frosting {my favorite frosting, hands down}.

Here's the recipe to the Cream Cheese Frosting that I use:

4 ounces of cream cheese, room temperature

1 stick of butter, softened

2 cups of powdered sugar

In a mixer, cream together butter and cream cheese. add the powdered sugar and mix on low for 3 minutes.

My kids LOVED these and my hubby did, too! I think they are perfect to make if you're needing something for cake walks, fall festivals, packaged up cute for a hostess gift or just because it's fall. Not only do they taste wonderful, your home will smell wonderful, too!
