Red Velvet has always been a bit of a mystery to folks. With its chocolatey taste but crimson color, I could see where the confusion comes from.

This take on M&M cookies uses 4 ingredients and takes just 30 minutes to make. If you’re making this snack for Valentine’s day, use the M&M’s Cupid’s Mix. To turn this into a patriotic treat for the Fourth of July, simply use blue candies instead.
To get your cookies to bake into a cup shape, simply place the dough into a muffin tin and press them with a spoon once they’re baked. The cinnamon in this recipe is optional, but it adds a fun twist to normal red velvet cookies.
This take on chocolate-covered strawberries are even better than the classic version! To add the red velvet flavor, dip each strawberry in a red velvet cake mix after they’ve been dipped in the chocolate.
A red velvet milkshake consists of more than just dye! Instead of using vanilla ice cream, this milkshake recipe calls for cake batter ice cream. Top the whipped cream with heart-shaped sprinkles for Valentine’s Day!
One benefit of making your own cake mix is that you’ll always know what goes into your food. These cakelets are made completely from scratch using a homemade red velvet mix and a thick cream cheese frosting.
