I really enjoyed these cookies fresh from the oven because they are crisp on the outside and fudgy on the inside. I like that the chocolate kiss on top was still melty too! MMM!!!

The only warning that should come with these cookies is that they can make your mouth red (duh), so the little ones might get a bit messy! Nonetheless, they are the perfect red treat for at least 2 holidays out of the year!

Red Velvet Blossoms

Red Velvet Blossoms

Yield: 28 cookies
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 18 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 (16.5oz) box Red Velvet Cake Mix
  • 1/4 cup oil
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 (2.25oz) jar red sugar crystals
  • Hershey Kisses (approximately 28)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, combine the Red Velvet Cake Mix, oil, water, and egg until no dry lumps appear. Batter will be thick and sticky.
  3. Pour the red sugar crystals into a bowl. Use a trigger scoop (about 1Β½ to 2 Tbsp) to measure the dough. Squeeze the scoop to release the cookie dough ball directly into the bowl of sugar crystals. Swirl the bowl to coat the cookie dough balls, one at a time, in the red sugar crystals. Place coated dough balls a few inches apart on a prepared baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  4. Bake at 350˚F for 8 to 10 minutes. Immediately press a chocolate kiss in the center of each warm cookie gently. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
