This recipe was sent to me by a friend. As soon as I read “Black Russian” I was already ready to try these whoopie pies.I love White Russians and I love Colorado Bulldogs.
Please tell me you know these drinks and I haven’t become “THAT” person. Please.
If not, White Russians are a Kahlua, milk, and vodka mixed drink that I personally think make a fine winter beverage or breakfast cocktail. Colorado Bulldogs are the same as a White Russian but with a Coca Cola topper. YUM.
These cookies are neither of the above because unlike the above counterparts this has no milk/cream in the recipe. Thereby making these BLACK Russian Whoopie Pies.
I am sincerely glad I got a manicure not long before making these. See picture below.
Also glad I hadn’t started a diet before making these. THEY ARE SO GOOD. They have the perfect whoopie pie texture but KAHLUA. It is inside the actual pie and the filling is KAHLUA CREAM. Get on board the coffee liquer train y’all.
Black Russian Whoopie Pies
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 – 5.9oz chocolate instant pudding mix
- 1 tsp baking powder
- • 1/3 cup sugar
- • 2 eggs
- • 2/3 cup vegetable oil
- • ¼ cup kaluha
- • ¼ cup vodka
- • 1/3 cup water
1.Set oven to 350 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet or get your silicone liner ready!
2. Mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients in separate bowls. Don’t worry about a few small lumps in the dry mix.
3. Mix dry and wet ingredients together until well combined.
4. Using a cookie scoop, scoop batter onto greased cookie sheet. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE AN EVEN NUMBER, so that way you have the perfect pie set up
or don’t and you can always eat that one out of the oven.
5. Let the pies cool completely before frosting.
Kahlua Cream Frosting
- 1 stick of butter-softened to room temperature
- 2 ¼ cups of powdered sugar
- 3 tbsp kaluha
- Cream the softened butter in a large bowl until smooth and fluffy.
- Gradually add the powdered sugar to bowl and beat on medium in your mixer.
- Add the Kahlua to the frosting and beat for 3 minutes, scraping the bowl occasionally.
- Frost cooled pies.
- Refrigerate until serving.
They are such a treat and surprisingly simple. You can get away with making your friends think you are fancy by bringing these to the next block party, baby shower, birthday, engagement party, girl’s night, or what have you.
And because you should never trust a skinny cook, I taste tested them.
IT WAS AWESOME.
