Pumpkin Caramel Whoopie Pies

Seems like I’m on a run of classics lately. I’m not sure what it is, but when I’m not feeling well I seem to go back to basics. For this one I used Martha Stewart’s pumpkin whoopie pie recipe.

The only thing I changed was to add 4 tablespoons of homemade caramel to the filling and finished the pumpkin whoopie pies with a caramel glaze and some crushed toffee for a little crunch.

I’m keeping this one short because as I mentioned I’m not feeling all that great and hoping the weekend will help me recover.

    Sorry to bother you when you aren’t feeling well, but I would like to make these this week for our Halloween party and noticed you mentioned adding 4 tablespoons of caramel to the filling, but it’s not listed in the ingredients. Do you just mix in some caramel sauce ou do you melt caramels and add them?

    I hope you get some rest and feel better soon.

      Hi Beth – I used homemade caramel sauce, but store bought or melted caramels will work fine as well.

    This is roughly the recipe I’ve used, too, when I made pumpkin whoopie pies but I always halve it because they’re too tempting otherwise :)

    Yours are gorg! Pinned! (and congrats again!!!!!!!)

    I make pumpkin whoopie pies each year, but never with a caramel glaze. Looks good!
