Recipe makes 18 smaller Whoopie Pies or 9 large Whoopie Pies

How to Stencil Designs onto Halloween Whoopie Pies

Either purchase small halloween-themed stencils or print/cut out the desired designs you wish to stencil on. Make sure the stencil completely covers the Whoopie Pie to ensure you don’t get powdered sugar where you don’t want it. Use powdered sugar and a sifter to lightly cover the stencil. Carefully remove the stencil to see your design!

How to Make Halloween Whoopie Pie Spiders

To make Halloween Whoopie Pie Spiders, use 8 pieces of black licorice for the legs. Lay the licorice onto the icing before topping with the second Whoopie Pie. Use a little bite of extra cake icing to stick candy eyes onto the tops of the pies. You may want to color your cake icing black (or use chocolate flavor!) for this version.
