Gingerbread Men Whoopie Pies

Fun and festive are these Gingerbread Whoopie Pies made simple by using Betty Crocker™ gingerbread cookie mix and eggnog spiked frosting.

Ingredients

1
box Betty Crocker™ gingerbread cookie mix
1
large egg
1 1/4
cups luke warm water
1
can Betty Crocker™ Rich & Creamy vanilla frosting
1
cup powdered sugar
2
tbsp Bourbon (optional)
1/4
cup eggnog

Directions

  • 1 Prepare gingerbread batter according to the package directions.
  • 2 Carefully spoon or pipe gingerbread batter into greased baking molds. I only had one mold so I had to make them twice.
  • 3 Bake at 350°F for 15-17 minutes depending on your oven. Remove and let cool for 10 minutes.
  • 4 Remove gingerbread men from molds.
  • 5 Let the gingerbread men continue to cool on a cookie sheet.
  • 6 Using a serrated knife, cut the gingerbread men in half (like a hamburger bun).
  • 7 In a medium bowl mix together the frosting, powdered sugar, eggnog, and bourbon (you can leave out the bourbon). Mix until smooth. This will be a thick frosting, you want that so you can pipe it easily and it will stay put.
  • 8 Pipe frosting onto the bottom half of the gingerbread man (the top half is the one with the face on it). Then place the top gingerbread piece on top of the frosted piece.
  • 9 Decorate your gingerbread men Whoopie pies however you would like. I used Betty Crocker™ Cookie Frosting and used Red Hots. You could use gum drops, chocolate chips, peppermints. Have fun!

Step By Step  

Get in the holiday mood with these cute gingerbread men!

As prepared by Baker Peabody,

It’s that time of year…time for gingerbread men!

And I’m getting my gingerbread men drunk. Well – maybe just a little bit tipsy. These Gingerbread Men Whoopie Pies are a fun treat to have at any holiday party. Yummy gingerbread cake (in cute gingerbread men form) filled with spiked eggnog frosting…it’s awesomesauce.

They're super easy to make and fun for everyone (of course, skip the bourbon if serving kids). If you're making them booze-free, let kids have at it with the Betty Crocker Cookie Icing and candies!

If you buy spiked eggnog just remove the two tablespoons of bourbon from the recipe…or not. I wouldn’t, but that’s just how I roll.
