Soft Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies


These cookies could also be called chocolate bombs because they are loaded with a deep chocolate flavor that will make any chocolate fan smile. The powdered sugar is for show but also gives the cookies a little extra sweetness because they are more chocolatey than sweet. They are perfect with a big mug of coffee or milk.


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons of milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 stick salted butter softened to room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon of red food dye or enough to make them red enough to your liking.



  1. Set aside the powdered sugar in a small bowl.
  2. Mix all the wet ingredients together.
  3. Add in the dry ingredients and mix until it’s all combined.
  4. Scoop a tablespoon of dough into the powder sugar bowl and flip it over until it’s all covered in powder sugar.
  5. Roll in your hands into a ball. Be warned, make sure the dough is covered in powdered sugar before you handle it or your hands will turn red from the dye. Ask me how I know…
  6. Place on a greased sheet.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes. Watch them carefully and remove them once they are firm and cracked.
