Whoopie pies are not pies at all but a cake-like sandwich cookie. Enjoy this chocolate version that is filled with a delicious salted caramel buttercream.
Combine cake mix, 1/2 cup melted butter, water and eggs in bowl; stir gently to combine. Let batter rest 30 minutes.
Heat oven to 400°F.
Drop batter by slightly rounded teaspoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto parchment-lined or lightly greased cookie sheets. Sprinkle each cookie with sea salt. Bake 5-7 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Transfer to cooling rack.
Place 1 cup butter into bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Add powdered sugar gradually, beating at low speed until well mixed. Add caramel sauce, 1 teaspoon sea salt and vanilla. Beat until well mixed.
Pipe or spread rounded teaspoonful filling onto bottom of 1 cookie; place second cookie, bottom-side down over filling. Repeat with remaining cookies and filling.

I've gotten pretty good at adapting regular recipes to GF in the nearly three years since my celiac diagnosis, but when I need awesome can't-tell-it's-GF recipes for special occasions, this is where I look. My four year old and I made the minis together, and then we also used one of those "big top" giant cookie silicone molds, spread the batter in the molds, and baked. It came out perfect. We spread the salted caramel filling between the "cookies," and it looked like a giant sandwich cookie. We're using this again next weekend as a birthday cake for my two year old. Also, if anyone else has trouble finding a 21 ounce cake mix, the Pamela's brand is exactly the right size, mostly organic, and delicious!
The sweet and salty combination is amazing!
So good! Everyone loved the salty and sweet combo.

This year, my grandson Clark is 3 years old, so I wanted to make some cookies that he would love to eat and would find to be fun, too. These adorable Powdered Sugar Snowmen Cookies are just the ticket.
Chocolate’s complex flavor brings out the sweetness and tanginess of fruit, mellows the heat of peppers, and comes alive when introduced to a little bit of salt. The real question should be, “What can’t you dip in chocolate?” More ...
