It’s evident these cookies are perfect for Christmas, but they are also ideal for Valentine’s Day, July 4th celebrations, and even Halloween.

I used the Duncan Hines Signature cake mix, though Betty Crocker also makes a red velvet cake mix. Either is perfectly fine. My store only had the Duncan Hines in stock. This recipe won’t break the budget either.
