Soft and sweet Red Velvet Cookies on a stick, plus free printable tags for Valentine’s Day! Today’s red velvet cookie pops will make your Valentine’s heart pitter patter.
Valentine’s Day is a holiday we all either love or hate.
Although we don’t go over board in my family, buying lavish presents and roses, I do love a holiday that honors appreciating the special people in your life, and telling them so.
Love is worth celebrating.
Not the kind based on pure physical attraction, that is so easy to fall into when we’re young.
But real love.
The kind that’s based on little daily choices to put others first and overlook their imperfections.
I’m certainly thankful my family and friends forgive my imperfections; Gods knows I have a bundle.
Today I’ve got a little treat that is sure to make your loved ones feel celebrated this Valentine’s Day, Red Velvet Cookie Pops!
These Red Velvet Cookies are tender and moist with the subtle flavors of red velvet cake. After all, a red velvet cake is just a simple buttermilk cake with a little cocoa powder and a whole lot of food coloring.
Here I’ve mimicked the flavors of red velvet cake by adding cocoa, and a touch of vinegar to my favorite roll out cookie recipe. The vinegar gives the cookies a very mild twang, like buttermilk.
Then I made a thick (not fluffy) cream cheese frosting to “glue” the red velvet cookies together on lollipop sticks. The frosting hardens just enough to keep the red velvet cookies fastened to the sticks.
Red Velvet Cookie Pops are perfect for sharing with your coworkers, neighbors, or your child’s classmates this Valentine’s Day.
