Red velvet cupcakes are a constant Valentine’s Day favorite, but why not switch things up a bit this year? I love this idea from Lauryn Cohen, the founder of (the former) Bella Baker company, for red velvet whoopie pies.

Lauryn was kind enough to share her amazing easy Red Velvet Whoopie Pies recipe with us so that we could make them for our little sweeties. Enjoy!

I love how pretty these look with minimal effort. If you wanted to add a little extra Valentine’s oomph, you could coat the sides of the whoopie pies in heart-shaped sprinkles or even pink and red dot sprinkles.

You could also make them mini simply by scooping out the batter with a smaller ice cream scoop. There are lots of possibilities! Either way, enjoy these with your loved ones on Valentine’s Day and it’s sure to be a sweet celebration!

If you found this recipe helpful, please share it. Thanks!
