Butter Pecan Whoopie Pies with Caramel Cream Cheese Filling

I have made Whoopie Pies before, but this time I decided to play around with some different flavors and these turned out really yummy.  The filling could also be used as a frosting for cupcakes too!

Butter Pecan Whoopie Pies with Caramel Cream Cheese Filling

3 large eggs
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup oil

1 bag caramels, unwrapped
1/4 cup evaporated milk
2oz cream cheese, softened
1/2 stick butter, softened
1/2 jar marshmallow creme
1 cup heavy cream

Heat oven to 350 degrees
Spray cookie sheet with nonstick spray
Beat cake mix, eggs, water, and oil in large bowl with an electric mixer
Drop batter onto prepared cookie sheet with cookie scoop
