    Wow! These cookies pack both a tasty and visual punch! Their bright red color lends itself nicely to holiday cooking, and they couldn't get any easier to make!

    Units: US | Metric


    • 1 (18 ounce) box red velvet cake mix (any brand will do)
    • 2 eggs
    • 1/3 cup oil

    Cream Cheese Frosting


    1. 1
      Mix all the cookie ingredients together. This will make a cookie dough.
    2. 2
      Roll into balls and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Flatten down slightly (depending on the thickness you desire).
    3. 3
      Bake at 375° until the tops crackle (about 8-10 minutes) or until desired doneness.
    4. 4
      Cool and then frost (they're also good without the frosting).
    5. 5
      For the frosting, beat cream cheese, margarine, milk and vanilla in medium bowl with electric mixer on low speed until smooth.
    6. 6
      Gradually beat in powdered sugar on low speed, 1 cup at a time, until smooth and spreadable. Frosts one 13 × 9-inch cake generously, or fills and frosts one 8- or 9-inch two-layer cake. Refrigerate any remaining frosting.
    7. 7
      Chocolate Cream Cheese Frosting: Add 2 ounces unsweetened baking chocolate, melted and cooled, with the margarine.

      I was a bit skeptical that these would turn out at first... the dough was very thick and hard to mix. But once I actually baked them, I knew I had a recipe to keep! Delicious little chocolate cookies, and they really held their shape extremely well! Instead of single cookies, I put one on top of another with icing inbetween them to make red velvet sandwich cookies. MMM. My friends will love them for our Fourth of July party. <3

      I don't normally review a recipe but this was super easy and turned out fantastic. I added chocolate chips and cut the sugar on the frosting.

      Excellent!! I made these into whoopie pies for my son's class for Valentines day and wow, they are SO yummy!! I used Duncan Hines brand, and the taste is good but they really are not very red, so I will try Betty Crocker next time, or add more food coloring. I did not find the need to grease the pan with my pans. They soften up over night, and I think are better soft so make them a day ahead if you like them soft. I used all four cups of icing sugar to get the stiff consistency for the whoopie pies, and it isn't too sweet since you are using it for two cookies. I doubled the recipe and got 36 pies or 72 cookies, and I did NOT need to double the icing. The best part about these? They were FAST and EASY and they look great! I will be trying it with other cake mix flavors! Thanks for sharing!
