While making Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies yesterday, I also made up a batch of sugar cookie dough, cut it into hearts, & baked them. I used the same recipe I used at Christmas and they turned out great again. Continue reading
With only 3 days to go until Valentine’s Day, I decided to start my baking tonight. While I prepped the sugar cookie dough that I’ll be baking off tonight, but decorating tomorrow, I decided to whip up a batch of Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies.
I used the same recipe we use for Chocolate Crinkle Cookies at Christmas and just swapped in Red Velvet Cake Mix for the Devil’s Food. You can find the recipe I used on here. They are just as delicious as the originals, but must more festive looking! I hope my friends & family enjoy them in a few days!

This year I decided to try making red velvet cupcakes to take to work for Valentine’s Day. I iced them with cream cheese frosting using my Wilton Dessert Decorator Pro.
To finish them off, I topped each cupcake with a chocolate heart pic. I made the hearts using a Wilton candy mold with red, pink, and dark chocolate candy melts.
They turned out great!
