Valentine’s Day Red Velvet Cake Mix Cookies

As these cookies are made from red velvet cake mix, they are great for Valentine’s Day. I kept it simple with cream cheese frosting and red sprinkles. They are even great eaten plain, with a crunchy exterior and chewy on the inside. 

You really can’t mess up these cookies! And with only three ingredients, it all comes together fast enough to satisfy your sweet tooth.


  • Servings: 24 cookies (total)
  • Difficulty: easy

  • 1 box of red velvet cake mix
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • icing and sprinkles (optional)



  1. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Pour cake mix contents into a large bowl.
  3. Add oil and stir carefully with a large spoon.
  4. Whisk eggs separately in another bowl, then add to larger bowl.
  5. Combine ingredients with spoon until all ingredients are incorporated.
  6. Once dough comes together, use a spoon to scoop balls of dough, roll, and place onto baking sheets, approximately 12 per baking sheet.
  7. Using the bottom of a glass dipped in flour, press down flat on each dough ball until 1/4″ thick.
  8. Bake at 350° F for about 10 minutes. Remove from oven, and allow cookies to set for 10-15 minutes.
  9. Cookies may be eaten once cool, or refrigerated for up to 5 days. Wait until cookies are completely cooled before frosting and adding sprinkles.
