Whoopie Pie Wednesday: Pumpkin Caramel

What says Fall better than pumpkin and caramel? Not much, just ask Bath & Body Works, this must be why a majority of their Fall candles involve the confluence of these two scents. Pure goodness. And they just so happen to taste good as well!!! These have been requested no less than 6 times in the last 2 weeks, I think that is a good sign;)

Ingredients
cookies
1 box caramel cake
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup water
filling
4-6 oz pumpkin flavored cream cheese(softened)
1 cup heavy whipping cream(cold)
1 packet cheesecake flavor pudding packet

Preheat oven to 350'
Mix together dry cake mix, oil, eggs and water
I normally use a round TBSP to place on cookie sheet, but you can also use a round TSP to make them bite size and get more out of it. Bake 8-9 minutes

For the filling
Cream softened cream cheese on low for 1 minute to get fluffy, add half the pudding packet, and 2 tbsp whipping cream, beat until fully incorporated and slowly add the remaining whipping cream and beat until peaks begin to form. Set in fridge for an hour to firm up.


Once the cookies have cooled, lay one cookie flat, top it w/the filling and then place it's partner on top. 


***Notes
the only place I have seen the caramel cake mix is The Gates of Hell Walmart, so if you can't find it anywhere, you should be able to add 2/3 tbsp of caramel ice cream topping to a yellow cake mix to get the caramel flavoring. and the pudding packet is optional, you don't have to use it. and if you can't find the pumpkin cream cheese(this is everywhere here) you could add 2 tbsp of pumpkin pie filling to regular cream cheese and get same effect.

All I know is this is like Fall, jumping all around in your mouth. Get on it, people, get on it. and you should probably burn the pumpkin caramel latte candle while you're at it, just to fully immerse yourself in all things Fall.

And thank you to everyone who wrote the kind words, messages and texts. Each one was special to me. Yesterday's post wasn't easy to write, but the reactions made me gad I did it.
