Cookies for Santa Printable, Peppermint Whoopie Pies, and a chance to win a $200 Walmart gift card!

{{{Happy Monday}}}

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday!

We had so much fun with our family.

I came home to a schizophrenic house — half of it is Christmas, half is Thanksgiving. I am excited to get all of my Christmas things out and make it all festive this week. In the meantime, I have a family Holiday Treat to share with you!!

If you know me, you will know that I am not a big baker. But I do like to make cute holiday treats. This is a FUN recipe your kids can help with. It’s easy, it’s fast and it’s festive!

Peppermint Whoopie Pies

Plus, you use a cake mix — so it’s super fast!! Your kids will love making these holiday treats with you. And, I know I have mentioned that I am a moderator at the International Delight forum. It’s a great place to connect and share with other people. I don’t drink coffee myself, but I used some of the International Delight Peppermint Mocha in this recipe and it is DELIGHTFUL.

 Mix

  • 1 boxed cake mix.
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/3 cup Mocha Peppermint International Delight Creamer

Filling

  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 1/3 cups marshmallow fluff
  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1  tsp. vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp, salt
  • 1/2 tsp. peppermint oil

Directions:

Mix all ingredients together. Use a spoon to put 2 inch balls on a baking sheet, lined with parchment paper.

Be sure to use parchment paper.

Look at the difference between cookies baked with parchment paper and those on a plain cookie sheet!

Bake at 400-degrees for 8-10 minutes until the center of the cookie can be pricked with a toothpick and come out clean. Let cool on a wire rack.

Make the Filling. Fill the center of the cookies with the filling and then roll them in the crushed peppermints or sprinkles.

{can you see that half of the lights in my tree aren’t working??? LOL}

Now for the fun stuff!! Crush up the peppermints in your food processor. If you don’t have one, put them in a Ziploc and pound them with a glass or rolling pin. Ella and Hannah love doing this!

I also made a printable you can use and leave out on Christmas Eve!!

You can print this printable on scrapbook paper in your printer and any background will come through.
Here’s a link to the Cookies For Santa Printable.

You can take an old jar and add the printable to it to leave out for Santa.

You can make a couple of  holes on each side of the Santa printable and then thread some baker’s twine through. {I got my baker’s twine from Twisted Sugar Twine}

So now you have an easy cookie that’s perfect for cookie exchanges, parties or the big night before Christmas!!

And guess what?? You can win a $200 Walmart gift card!!
