Red Velvet Hearts

Valentine's Day is less than a week away!!!

When I think about food that goes with this holiday, I think about desserts.  That's it.  No regular food.  Just chocolate and sweets! 

These Red Velvet Hearts are a super easy Cake Mix Cookie that is perfect for Sunday!

Your Shopping List for the Red Velvet Hearts:
  • 1 box red velvet cake mix 
  • 1 stick butter 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • red sugar sprinkles (you can always use plain white sugar and color it red if you cannot find red sugar sprinkles) 
  • 24 dark chocolate hearts, unwrapped (like the kind by Dove)

Now Let's Make the Red Velvet Hearts:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper
  2. In the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter, eggs, and vanilla extract
  3. Add the red velvet cake mix and the baking powder to your mixer and beat together until a soft dough forms
  4. Use a cookie scoop to form dough into 24 balls (about 1 inch each)
  5. Roll each dough ball into the red sugar sprinkles
  6. Place onto prepared baking sheets and bake in oven for 10  - 12 minutes
  7. While the cookies are in the oven, unwrap your chocolates and have them ready 
  8. Remove from oven and immediately press a chocolate heart into the center of each cookie
  9. Allow to cool on cookie sheets for 2 minutes and then transfer to wire racks to cool completely
  10. Once cookies are cool and the chocolate has completely set, store in an airtight container
