Honey, I shrunk the whoopie pies! It’s a better alternative to shrinking the kids, right? Mini carrot cake whoopie pies provide all the satisfaction of normal-sized whoopie pies shrunk into a bite-sized treat.
With Easter approaching and people getting ready to entertain, I choose to bake mini carrot cake whoopie pies with cream cheese frosting. People love mini desserts. Pop one delectable in your mouth, relish in how marvelous it is, but feel no guilt because, hey, it was just a bite.
These little guys are one-bite wonders. The cookies are soft pillows of carrot cake delight while the cream cheese frosting is the rich filling holding the cookies together. I absolutely love my cream cheese frosting recipe because it’s a bit cream-cheesier than most. Less butter and less confectioners’ sugar makes it thicker, thus a good adhesive between the two cookies. Plus, what would carrot cake be without cream cheese frosting?
If you’re cooking for a crowd this Easter, I suggest making mini carrot cake whoopie pies. You’re much less likely to have leftovers because your guests will feel no guilt trying a mini dessert.
