Raise your hand if you love red velvet! It’s one of my all-time favorites, and I love that holidays like Valentines Day, Independence Day, and Christmas give me an excuse to bust out the red food coloring. Here’s a roundup of red velvet recipes that includes cookies, crepes, and–of course–lots of cream cheese!
Chewier and richer than cake, smothered in cream cheese frosting and white chocolate curls, these brownies look absolutely decadent.
A layer of brownies on the bottom and a swirly brownies-and-cream-cheese layer on top. Sounds like a winner to me!
These are just so cute. Cream cheese frosting sandwiched between two fluffy red cookies…it’s the perfect little afternoon treat.
I’ve made these cookies twice now and they were a hit both times. They’re delicious, they’re pretty, and they come together quickly. Cookies don’t get much better than that.
Cream cheese frosting and cinnamon rolls were made for each other. Just add red and you’ve got a festive Valentines Day breakfast!
I usually think “savory” when I hear “cheese ball”, but this sweet version looks awfully intriguing. Served with vanilla wafers or graham crackers, it would be a great addition to any party.
It’s fudge. It’s red. It looks friggin delicious. Do I really need convince you to try this one?
I would love to snuggle up by a fire with a cup of this on a snowy evening. Of course I live in Phoenix, so that’s probably not going to happen, but a girl can dream, right?
It’s probably best that crepes take so much effort to make because I might eat them every day. This version would be a great breakfast in bed for your sweetheart on Valentines Day.
If that last one sounds a little high on the difficulty scale, try this gooey treat with cake mix, instant cheesecake pudding mix, Cool-Whip, and Oreos. Easy peasy.
When you’re feeding a crowd–say for a Valentines party–sheet cakes are definitely the way to go.
Last but not least, for the traditionalist, this is my favorite red velvet layer cake recipe. I kind of want to eat the frosting on, well, everything.
