Red Velvet Valentine's Day Cookies

IMG_2785

These cookies will have everyone’s tummy as full as their hearts on Valentine’s Day.  We make the Devil’s Food Cake version of these cookies very regularly.  SO I thought I would give them a shot with a Valentine’s twist.

You will need a Red Velvet Cake Mix, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup of oil, 1/4 cup of hot water, 2 tbsp of flour.  Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Combine all of the above ingredients together in a bowl and stir.  The more kids you have to help, the better (right???).

Bake in the oven for 12 minutes (I do 10 minutes in my oven).  While the cookies are baking cut a sheet of paper into six squares.  Cut out heart designs on them.  Be sure to save the cut outs for reverse imaging.

Immediately after the cookies come out of the oven an adult needs to place the stencils and shapes onto the cookies.  The cookies will be very hot, so be careful.

Put some powdered sugar in a sifter and let the kids take turns shaking the sugar onto the cookies.  Be sure to watch them closely and make sure they do not get too close to the cookies.

Remove the papers and you have heart designed red velvet cake cookies.

  1. Awesome! Looks like fun! You are such a cool mom. I'm so paranoid to let my boys help, they just destroy the kitchen. Oh well, I guess that's half the fun!

  5. These are so cute! I make the Devils' Food version all the time as well but it seems like you could cut out any shape of stencil to make it fun for kids or use in any season. Thanks for the post. ps-It is refreshing to see other moms who aren't afraid to serve their kids sugar. I do want to be careful about my kids teeth and cavities though. This Mom's Guide to Caring for Little Teeth (http://www.1dental.com/moms-guide/) has some great tips on how to avoid tooth decay.
