How festive and enchanting are these holiday ‘Red Velvet ‘Santa’ Cookies’?? 🙂
Don’t you just love the vibrant colors? Seriously, this is how they look!
Besides Santa and the adults, (ha!) the kids will be really excited to eat these! Who wouldn’t be, right? They are absolutely ADORABLE!
ChocolaTess Trivia: Do you know how Red Velvet cake came about?
Well, here’s the scoop! During the food rationing of World War II, bakers would use beets to enhance the color of their cakes. Weird, but true! And did you know ‘Chocolate’ is one of the main ingredients in red velvet desserts? Yum!!!
These cookies are made from a red velvet cake mix and honestly, they are so soft, chewy and they melt in your mouth. The chocolate from the cake mix really comes through and the red obviously screams ‘SANTA!’ & ‘CHRISTMAS!’. 🙂 Exactly what we were going for!
One more very, very important thing Santa really likes…It’s those white chocolate chips and the mini holiday M&M’s in the cookies that really rock it out!
Besides rockin’ it out, you’ve got yourself some really fun cookies to share! 🙂
