    • I’ve made much more complicated red velvet cookies before and was shocked- these taste the same! LOVE it when that happens- enjoy!

  1. Jessica… I’m excited to try this recipe, but I’m a bit confused. Don’t see where the cocoa power is mentioned in the directions. Please advise. Happy Holidays
