Easy Red Velvet Cookies recipe stacked with cream cheese frosting to make a fluffy cake mix cookie cake. A simple dessert that makes a big impression!
Easy Red Velvet Cookies from a Cake Mix
I’m a firm believer that all red velvet cookies should come with cream cheese frosting. If you agree, you’ll be very happy with this easy recipe for Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies. They really do taste just like a red velvet cake, but much quicker and easier to make!
These easy cookies are not only easy to make, but look amazing on a party table. Remember the movie Divergent? I used these cookies for a movie themed party and they looked awesome. So much cuter than cupcakes and just as simple.
What is Red Velvet Cake?
Is it chocolate or vanilla? This staple of the south recipe is made from rich cocoa-flavored cake with a reddish color. It’s typically prepared as a layer cake with buttercream or cream cheese frosting. So why I wanted to layer my cookies.
Easy Cake Mix Cookies
Since I’m a little obsessed with making cake mix cookies, adding red velvet cake to my list of cookie recipes was a no brainer. Instead of making the cake from scratch, I preferred to made it quickly with a boxed cake. The flavor is still bursting with flavor and makes super fluffy cookies.

How to make Red Velvet Stacked Cookie Cakes
I turned my cookies into cute stacked cookie cakes. You can make regular cookies with this recipe, or stack them. Depends on how much time you have. Stacking them makes for less cookies per person, so these stacked cookie cakes are good for a small group.
What You’ll Need:
- Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies (print the recipe below)
- Cream Cheese Frosting
- Chocolate Bark (optional)
You can make the cookies and frosting from scratch, or buy ready-made cookies and frosting from your grocery store. Either way, these make a big impression for something so simple!
All you need to do is stack three cookies with icing in between each one.
I added some dark chocolate bark to the top of mine. You could use any kind of chocolate or sprinkle chocolate shavings over the top.
Print the recipe below if you want to make these from scratch. They are so good!
