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.

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.

  • Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies (print the recipe below)
  • Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Chocolate Bark (optional)
