Here is an easy red velvet cookies recipe just in time for Valentine’s Day.

Using cake mix makes this cookie recipe easier than pie. (Seriously, I think pie is harder to make than cookies.)

Easy Red Velvet Cookies Recipe - Valentine's Day Cookies

Red Velvet reminds me of romance and Valentine’s Day.

The deep red color makes a perfect sweet for your sweetheart.

These easy red velvet cookies not only look like Cupid baked them up, but taste like love.

Too far? Sorry, I tend to get a little carried away when I talk about cookies.

No date? Make these cookies for yourself. No sharing — even better. 😉

Easy Red Velvet Cookies Recipe

This recipe will yield 16-18 cookies:

Ingredients:

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350° degrees.
  2. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. This will keep the cookies from spreading into each other.
  3. In a mixing bowl, add the cake mix, baking powder, eggs, and vegetable oil. Mix until well combined.
  4. Stir in the white chocolate chips.
  5. Add the Valentine M&M’s and stir to distribute throughout the cookie dough.
  6. Using a tablespoon or cookie dough scoop, transfer the dough onto the baking sheet.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes only. (FYI – If you leave the cookies in longer than 10 minutes, the white chocolate chips begin to brown and the M&M’s start to crack)
  8. Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to completely cool.
  9. ENJOY!
