These Cake Mix Red Velvet Heart Crinkle Cookies require just FOUR ingredients and are ready to eat in just 15 minutes, perfect for Valentine’s Day!!!

Last year I shared a Cake Mix Red Velvet Crinkle Cookie Recipe that is slightly different from this one, but both could be cut with a heart-shaped cookie cutter for an extra special touch to enjoy on Valentine’s Day, your anniversary, wedding shower, or even a wedding reception!

1/3 cup vegetable oil

½ cup powdered sugar

To begin, Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

Next, in a medium mixing bowl, combine cake mix, oil, and eggs.

The batter will firm up towards the end and be thick and sticky.

Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, spoon the dough into balls and roll in powdered sugar to completely coat.

Place cookie balls on baking sheet approximately 2 inches apart.

Using a small bowl or cup, flatten the balls slightly so they spread out more while baking.

Bake for 9-11 minutes or until cookies have a hint of brown on the edges.

Allow cookies to cool.

Once cooled, use a heart-shaped cookie dough cutter to cut out heart-shaped cookies.

Tips: you can use more than one size of cookie dough cutters to use up even more of the dough for cookies.

Don’t let the scraps go to waste!

They can be processed in a food processor and made into red velvet truffles when combined with just a couple ingredients, or chopped and combined with popcorn for a yummy snack (add melted white chocolate and pink and red sprinkles!), or even added to ice cream.

Those are cute, and making them like that is a great idea! I would've never thought to make cookies using cake mix, but I definitely have to give this a try.
