Mixing up a batch of this Valentine’s Day Red Velvet Cookies Recipe is super easy! Especially since the main ingredient for these moist cookies is a box of red velvet cake mix.
Go ahead and choose your favorite brand of box mix! From there you’ll build off that base by adding vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract.
Once the cookie dough has chilled, been rolled into balls, and then baked they’ll be dressed up for Valentine’s Day! This is done by simply melting white chocolate and then dipping each cookie halfway into it.
Afterward, the chocolate-dipped cookies are sprinkled with your favorite Valentine’s sprinkles!
How To Make Red Velvet Cookies
Stir the cake mix, vegetable oil, eggs, and vanilla extract together in a large bowl. Then place the dough into the refrigerator to chill.
Roll the chilled dough into balls and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Bake the Red Velvet Cookies until the edges have set. Be careful not to overbake. Cool the cookies on the baking sheet before transferring them to a cooling rack.
Melt the chocolate in a double boiler until it becomes nice and smooth.
Dip half of each cookie into the melted chocolate and then top them with sprinkles. Allow the chocolate to harden at room temperature or pop them in the refrigerator to set.

Valentine’s Day Red Velvet Cookies
- 1 (15oz.) box red velvet cake mix
- ⅓ cup vegetable oil
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 11 ounces white chocolate chips or melting wafers
- Prepare a large baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, vegetable oil, eggs and vanilla. Stir until well mixed. Set the bowl in the refrigerator for 20 minutes to chill.
- About 5 minutes before you pull the dough out of the refrigerator, set the oven temperature to 350°F.
- Roll the dough into balls and place on the baking sheet.
- Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, just until the edges have sent. Do not overbake.
- Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool on the baking sheet for a couple of minutes before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.
- Meanwhile, melt the chocolate in a bowl over a double boiler pot until it is smooth and completely melted. Remove the chocolate bowl from the double boiler pot and set it aside. If using melted wafers, you can melt them in the microwave at 30-second intervals, stirring between each, until smooth.
- Dip half of the cookie into the melted chocolate and cover it in sprinkles. Once the cookies have all been dipped in the chocolate and covered in sprinkles, let them sit for 10 minutes or place them back into the refrigerator for 5 to 8 minutes so that the chocolate can harden.
- How To Store: Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days.
- How Can I Melt The Chocolate If I Don’t Have A Double Boiler? No worries at all! Just bring a pot of water to simmer on the stovetop and then place a heat-proof bowl on top of it.

Ok. So, after the cookies rested for about 3 hours, they are perfect! I’m excited to give them to my coworkers!
Rebecca Hubbell says
I hope they enjoy them!
Thank you. I just baked the cookies and they are yummy. Only thing is that they taste a little bitter. Is this normal? The white chocolate offsets it a bit. I chilled for 20 minutes.
Can I chill the dough longer?
Rebecca Hubbell says
You can, the final texture of the cookies may change slightly though.
