Red Velvet Cookies Recipe From Val's Kitchen

Red velvet. It’s hard to believe that I remember a time, over 30 years ago, that I had never heard of red velvet. Maybe it wasn’t as popular. Maybe it wasn’t even a “thing”. I don’t know. But, it sure is popular now. Red velvet cakes and cupcakes? I see them all of the time. Red velvet cookies? Of course, they’re out there too! Speaking of which, here’s a simple recipe to make some. Homemade red velvet cookies, that is. This recipe makes 3 dozen cookies.

Equipment Needed


  • 1 box fudge chocolate cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 tbsp red food coloring
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


Preheat the oven to 350 f.

Combine the cake mix, oil, eggs, and food coloring into the bowl for a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment.

Mix until a soft dough forms.

Add in the chocolate chips.

Mix until well combined.

Using a small ice cream scoop, scoop some dough out and roll it your hands to form a ball. Then, roll the ball in the powder sugar.

Place the balls onto the baking sheet, 2 inches apart.

Bake for 8-10 minutes.

When finished baking, pull the cookie sheet out of the oven and let rest for 1-2 minutes.

Transfer to a wire cooling rack and let cool before serving.

  1. This would be a nice little treat for the boys. I’m saving your recipe and make some for them to enjoy. Well, of course, I would willingly join in and have my share of these yummy red velvet cookies. 🙂

  2. It wasn’t until about maybe 7 years ago that I started seeing Red Velvet cakes etc. Maybe some baker came up with the idea then? Who knows but it sure is good! Those cookies sound like the 1 for each hand x 3 variety.
