Hi! Who doesn’t like Red Velvet? Several of you have been asking for the recipe for the chocolate crinkles. You can Google those, they’re all over the net, but this recipe can be adapted to chocolate!

These are almost as good as the Meyer Lemon ones! And they are super easy because they use a cake mix! You can make any flavor based on what cake mix you use including Chocolate!

Red Velvet I think is almost a favorite of everyone. These are so easy that you can make them all the time! They only take a few minutes to mix up, an hour to chill and 8-11 minutes to bake! It’s a great recipe to make with your children or grandchildren! They love rolling the dough balls in the sugar!

This dough is much moister and softer than the Meyer Lemon Crinkle Cookies, so rolling them lightly in Granulated Sugar then heavier in the powdered sugar makes it stick better!

If you make this recipes I would love it if you could post a picture or tell me how they turned out in the comments below.  You can also post on Face Book, Instagram or Pinterest and tag me at #scandalsandsweets!

Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies

  • Author:


This is a delicious easy cookie to make that looks like you spent hours in the kitchen.  It’s so easy your kiddos can help!



1 box of Red Velvet Cake Mix (or use any flavor that you want)

1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil

2 Large Eggs

Granulated Sugar for Rolling

Powdered Sugar for Rolling


Preheat oven to 350.

Grease cookie sheet or use parchment paper or a silpat.

Combine the Cake Mix, Oil and Eggs until well combined.

The dough is pretty soft and sticky at this stage so chill for an hour.

Using a medium scoop scoop a ball, roll it in the Granulated Sugar first and then roll it in the powdered sugar.  Really roll it in the powdered sugar until you have a white ball!

Place on the cookie sheet about 2 inches apart as they will spread and crinkle!

Bake for 8 – 11 minutes, depending on your oven, until they are set.

Let them cool a few minutes before you transfer them to a mat.  They are very soft when they are hot!


The granulated sugar helps the powdered sugar to stick.  Since the Red Velvet is a darker brighter color than the lemon it makes a more dramatic cookie!
