Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and it's not a typical holiday that Eric and I usually celebrate. We don't need a day to tell each other that we love each other, when we do that every day of the year. ;-) Plus, we are too busy celebrating my birthday which is in a couple of days. I already got a sweet early birthday gift of a much needed pre-natal massage. It was absolutely perfect and what made it even more perfect, the masseuse came to my house for the appointment. LOVE!



I do love Valentine's Day for the box of chocolates, the pretty heart decorations, and the decadent sweet treats. It's been a little difficult to resist the allure of something sweet lately, and my pregnancy cravings lately have been something sweet like cookies and brownies. These easy to prepare red velvet crinkle cookies are perfect when you need something sweet in a pinch. They have a beautiful light and dark contrast from the powdered sugar and you only need 5 ingredients to make this recipe. It's practically foolproof and a fantastic recipe. They are chewy in the middle and have a slight hint of chocolate.

Pure deliciousness!

Ingredients:
6 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
2 large eggs
1 box Red Velvet Cake Mix (18.25 ounce)
1 cup of white chocolate chips
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Preparation:

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or baking silicone mat.

Place powdered sugar in a small shallow bowl and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine butter, eggs and cake mix until there are no large lumps left. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Roll dough into 1-inch balls (about 1 tablespoon) and coat in powdered sugar. Place on cookie sheets at least 2 inches apart.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the tops have slightly cracked and the tops look set (the centers will be a little gooey but soooo yummy). Let sit for 5 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack.

Serve immediately and store in an airtight container for up to 5 days, if they last that long!

Yield: 18 cookies

Review: Yummy! If you don't like red velvet or not a chocolate fan, you can easily substitute another boxed cake mix to make the crinkle cookies. You can use lemon, strawberry, or even the funfetti for a playful take on the crinkle cookie.
I love this little sweetie pie of mine, and she brings the biggest smile to my face everyday. Her favorite thing to do lately is tear apart the baby floor mats in her playpen. She will start with the corners and then rip off the letters and then madness ensues. It's impossible to tell her no when she's just having fun. At least the mess is contained!
