Holiday Recipe | Red Velvet Cookies with White Chocolate Drizzle

There are a lot of things I love about the holidays but the food is really close to the top of my list. Every Christmas our family gets together for a dinner and everyone brings a variety of cookies to exchange and sample. There are a few staple cookies I always whip up but I also like to try new (and easy) ideas.

To make your cookie exchange easy and still full of tasty cookies, you don’t have to pull out the flour and beat a bowl of dough. Cake mixes are a great base for cookies. I turned an ordinary red velvet cake mix into these delicious red velvet cookies that are crispy, festive and made even more delicious with a white chocolate drizzle. Once the chocolate dries you can stack and package these in boxes.
