Baking is something that I’ve always found to be relaxing, and now that I’m back home rather than in a college dorm, I’ve been enjoying baking whenever the occasion calls (which is quite frequently…). As such, I always love to try new recipes! This particular one I stumbled across on Twitter and was very excited to make for Valentine’s Day last month. Who doesn’t love a theme cookie?!
Similar to my favorite chocolate caramel cookies, these Red Velvet Cookies are made using a box cake mix, meaning they’re super easy to make!
1 box of red velvet cake mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2 large eggs
Optional toppings: chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, walnuts or powdered sugar
-Preheat oven to 375°F
-Combine ingredients, including chosen topping (unless you chose powdered sugar) in a large bowl. If available, I suggest using a hand mixer or full size mixer, as the dough gets a bit tricky to mix by hand!
-Scoop 1 inch balls onto lined cookie sheet. Press down on each ball to flatten them out a bit – this makes for more even cooking.
-Bake for 9-12 minutes. The tops of the cookies will crack and the dough inside should look only slightly moist.
-If you’re using powdered sugar as your topping, let the cookies cool and then sprinkle it over the top.
This recipe is super yummy and so easy! I love the versatility of toppings as well, since you can change up the recipe so easily. Enjoy!
