Red Velvet is one of the most famous flavors that comes from southern tradition. If you love red velvet cake, you’ll really enjoy these dipped red velvet cookies with cake mix base. Red velvet has a slight taste of chocolate that comes from the cocoa powder that’s added, but also includes buttermilk for a slightly tart flavor. The combination is unique and festive for both Christmas and Valentine’s Day. If you need a cookie recipe that’s easy for a party, this one is perfect!

If you’re in the mood to bake, and you’re a beginner, or maybe just don’t want a big mess to clean up, cake mix cookies are the way to go. They only require one bowl. All of your dry ingredients are already mixed together and it makes a great base. I’ve used it as the base for my Copycat Red Velvet Mickey Waffles recipe too – it always comes out flavorful without much effort. For these, you don’t even need a fancy kitchen mixer either!
