For some reason, I thought that you could not use a cake mix for whoopie pies! Well it looks like you squashed that myth and did it in a delicious way. I am game for anything that has these two flavors in it and these are a handy way to enjoy them-grab and go-yum!

I love how you cut down on time with that devil's cake mix - very clever and smart. And then that chocolate with the coconut creams says "make me, you will like!"
