Red Velvet Cake Mix Blossom Cookies


  • 1 box Red Velvet Cake mix
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar or red decorating sugar
  • 24 hershey kisses or I used ghiradelli milk chocolate drops


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a cookie sheet or line it with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, oil, vanilla and eggs until well combined. Using a cookie scoop, or a spoon, grab tablespoon amounts of dough and roll into a ball. If the dough is too wet you can refrigerate it for 10-15 minutes. Roll the ball of dough into the granulated sugar or the red sugar. Either sugar will work fine, the red sugar just gives it a little more glimmer and pop. Place onto the cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes. As soon as the tray comes out of the oven press a chocolate drop into the middle of the cookie. Work fast as the cookies are harder to press as they cool. Move to a sheet of wax paper and allow the cookies and chocolate to completely cool before storing. Store in a covered container.
