Yumalicious! Thanks, J for the great recipe, I knew I could depend on you! DD said they are better than the ones we bought at SKH!! I used my Pampered Chef small cookie scoop to place the dough on the baking pan and it made 26 perfect sized whoopies. Thanks for posting.

This was my first attempt at red velvet whoopies and they came out tasty, but mine spread really BIG! I used a smaller scoop for the next tray and they came out better. Thanks for posting!
