Yummy Red Velvet Heart Crinkle Cookies Recipe for Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day in our home is a fun time to show all those around you that you care. A time where giving your love and spending time with each other goes hand in hand. Of course we do this all year long, but now we can make everything red and pink and eat extra chocolate! The person in my family who loves Valentine’s Day the most is my youngest. She loves to hand out Valentine’s at school and receive them. She also loves to bake cookies and share them with her classmates.

This year for Valentine’s Day we are baking up some Red Velvet Heart Crinkle Cookies. This recipe is so easy, anyone can do it easily without much cost.

Red Velvet Heart Crinkle Cookies

Red Velvet Heart Crinkle Cookies

Makes:  20-30 medium sized cookies

Prep Time: 5 Minutes | Cook Time: 10 Minutes | Total Time: 15 Minutes


1 box of red velvet cake mix

2 eggs

1/3 cup vegetable oil

½ cup powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine cake mix, oil and eggs. Batter will firm up towards the end and be thick and sticky.
  3. Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, spoon the dough into balls and roll in powdered sugar to completely coat.
  4. Place cookie balls on baking sheet approximately 2 inches apart.
  5. Using a small bowl or cup, flatten the balls slightly so they spread out more while baking.
  6. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until cookies have a hint of brown on the edges. Allow cookies to cool.
  7. 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.
