Whoopie Pie Wednesday: Pineapple & Malibu

A dessert from a drink is a favorite of mine, a perfectly acceptable way to enjoy one while you're working;)I don't know where this idea struck me, probably in the pudding aisle. That's where most of random ideas formulate. I know...

Anyways, Summer is drawing to a close, and I wanted to try some light treats to celebrate with friends. And what better way than pineapple and coconut?! Actually, I could probably think of 4 dozen ways(but I won't bore you with trivial details) as I may have a slight abhorrence aversion to coconut. Pina Coladas, never. Coconut cream pie, No thanks. I think it's when it's overwhelming and definitely the texture. shudder at the thought. Those little pieces floating around. Messy. Haha. Ugh. But I digress...

I can handle Malibu in small doses, mainly with exponential amounts of pineapple juice, probably the opposite of most people, but I may have started to slowly appreciate the sweetness of coconut. And while this is not my favorite of the whoopie pies, I did find it more tasty than I had anticipated. But my coconut loving friends gobbled these right up so if you're a fan, this is perfect for you!

1 box pineapple cake 
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil(canola or veggie)
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1 tbs malibu
1 box coconut cream pudding
6-8 oz cream cheese softened
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tbs heavy whipping cream
2 tbs Malibu
(or cool whip)

Preheat oven to 350'
Mix together dry cake mix, oil, eggs, juice and Malibu. The dough will be thick, I sometimes put in fridge for 1/2 an hour before putting on cookie sheet. 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 the pudding packet, tbs of whipping cream and the Malibu, beat until fully incorporated and slowly add the remaining whipping cream and beat until very stiff peaks begin to form. or for alternate version, prepare the pudding w/1 cup cold milk and Malibu and mix w/cool whip. Place in fridge for hour to let either version set up. 

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

***Notes I only used half the pudding packet, cause you know, I love me some coconut.or not. and this would probably be good w/real coconut flakes added to the filling and maybe small pineapple pieces to the dough.
