If you need a last minute Valentine’s Day treat, then these Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies are just what you’re looking for!


Using a box cake mix is a fabulous shortcut, especially when it comes to red velvet.

If you’ve ever tried making red velvet batter from scratch, you know it takes about a gallon of red dye.  Plus, cake mix cookies are always soft and chewy, just the way cookies should be.

And did I mention these are quick and easy?  My kids kept pressuring me to get a picture taken so they could eat more!

  4. I just made them and they were absolutely spectacular! Foolproof!

  5. Delicious and very easy to make! I made red velvet and devils food! Kids loved them!

  6. Has anybody tried freezing these? How long do they keep?

    • They freeze really well Marie. I think they be best eaten within a month, but I think you could easily freeze them for a few months and they’d still be good.
