I’ve been wanting a whoopie pie pan for awhile.

I just went to Bed Bath & Beyond and picked up the last two.  If you live in San Diego, the Mission Valley BB & B is fresh out of whoopie.

Using 20% off coupons that I hoard and that don’t expire despite a printed expiration date on them (save them and redeem them on your next purchase; this is up to the store’s discretion but I’ve tried in probably 20 stores in 5 states and never had an issue), but the whoopie pie pans were only about $9 bucks each after using a coupon or order on Amazon.  Cheap whoopie thrills.

I’ve seen recipes on blogs and on Pinterest floating around for cookies made in whoopie pans and they always look so good.

It was one of those wild hairs that until I try this myself, I cannot rest.  The baking bug has bitten, whoopie style.

First up will be a batch of Peanut Butter Oatmeal White Chocolate Chip Cookies in the whoopie pans.

And then I’m thinking of trying Snickers Bar Stuffed Chocolate Chip Cookies so that I can really stuff the Snickers bars in really deep into the cookies and make fat stuffed cookies..

The cavities appear to hold about twice the amount of dough compared to regular cookies so I’m sure I’ll be able to stuff lots of candy into my cookies, which sounds perfect.

I love my donut pans

I use my full size donut pan for Baked Chocolate Peanut Butter Donuts with Vanilla Peanut Butter Glaze

And for Krispy Kreme style donuts at home

I used the mini-size donut pan for Baked Eggnog Vanilla Donuts with Eggnog Rum Glaze

The mini pan is more of a P.I.T.A. because you have to be much more careful and precise when pouring the batter and it takes longer than using the full size pan because each cavity is so small, but I’m still glad I have it.

I’ve watched inventory of donut pans at BB & B dwindle over the past few months:



January: I got the last two whoopie pans.  Whew.

Looks like at-home donuts are popular and that whoopie making is hotter than ever.

What baking bugs have bitten you lately?  What do you want to make? 

Have you seen anything interesting or fun that you’re dying to try?

I hope you’re enjoying your weekend and baking up some fun things!


  1. I can’t wait to see what you make with them. I just picked up a heart shape donut pan from target. Shame on me, now I have 4 different donut pans, but a girl can’t have enough donuts, right?

  2. You have made me a BB & B convert. Seriously.

    Dishes, photo backgrounds, various pans and makers… you know. Necessities.

  3. I’ve made whoopie pies just using a baking sheet and piping the batter into a circle on parchment. A pan sounds way easier! LOVE IT.

  4. I only ever buy things from Bed Bath and Beyond if I have a coupon!

  5. Wow – there’s a pan for everything isn’t there. I can’t wait to see what you make in this special pan. I have never made whoopie pies myself, but one of my good friends make the most amazing pumpkin whoopie pies. I know she doesn’t have a special pan for them though. Hmm…maybe I should get one for her then I can borrow it :)

  6. After reading this entire post the only thing I can think of now after hearing the word “whoppie” is the Newlywed game. Every time that host would use the phrase “making whoppie” I would cringe. And now I’m cringing. haha

  7. Lately all I’ve been making is healthy “cookie” cereals that I plan on posting on my blog soon. And I’ve been trying to make whoopie pies…to no success. ^^ Maybe I do need those pans.

  8. So funny. Didn’t even know that they existed! The whoopie pans!

  9. Anything that means bigger cookies is a win in my book.

  10. Ahh! I want a both of those pans! I love cool kitchen stuff so much! =)

  11. I love my doughnut pan! I can definitely see a whoopie pan being the next absolute addiction! I love the plans you have for yours :)

  12. I think I need one or two of these in my life. I’m horrible at making cookies for some reason, so I love the idea to make cookies in these!

  13. Oh great, now I have to add a whoopie pie pan to my list. :) I still want to buy a donut one every time you show those amazing donuts of yours. Can’t wait to see what kind of whoopies you come up with. You never cease to amaze me. Loving your new mixer too! :) we should gave a BB and B date (with expired coupons of course). :)

  15. I’m intrigued to know how the cookies turn out. I’ve caught the paleo baking bug of late because I want gluten and low sugar treats (my body does NOT digest sugar well lol). Next on my agenda is cranberry orange almond muffins!!!

  16. I already have donut & whoopie pie pans & love making yummies with them. I’m very very popular in my office building! Next, I want to tackle bagels! I just need to replace my thermometer since mine just went belly up :(

  17. Those ice cream sandwich pans look interesting! So cool, we don’t have half of these things in Canada. You’re so lucky! I just made doughnuts yesterday and they were SO delicious. Loving my doughnut pan more than anything

  18. How fun, can’t wait to see your creations with the pans! I’m been in a dehydrating mood lately wanting to get into using mine more creating breads and crackers, but I need more non-stick sheets for iit first. :-P

  19. I have never even had a whoopie pie before! I am really happy with my donut pan, and can’t wait to use it more and more, and try some of your delicious looking donut recipes!

  20. I’ve wanted to get back into the kitchen and bake pretty much anything because I haven’t in weeks! I haven’t decided what to do first, but the blogosphere and Pinterest sure feed the addiction.

  21. I’ve never had a whoopie pie. Crazy right???

  22. I’ve never heard of a whoopie pie pan. I just always used a regular baking sheet. But, I have wanted one of those donut pans.

  23. So first of all your photos send me over the edge in mouth watering I want to eat that NOW land. I mean seriously fantastic food shots! The cookies, the doughnuts, oh my! I don’t know where to begin or how exactly I stumbled upon your site, but there is no turning back now. I will scour the posts for the perfect oatmeal raisin cookie recipe, all night if I have to!!!

    It may seem like a bit of a stretch, but making apple-cinnamon cheerio muffins, in the doughnut pan = giant cheerios, with a tall glass of milk, makes kids very happy. See the cheerio site for recipe :)


  24. I just got my whoopie pie pan ( heart shapes:) ) but I like the ice cream sandwich one. Will have to look for it. I just discovered your blog and love it!
