I love how complicated they look but how easy they really are to make. Crinkle cookies have been a long time favorite and then adding the red velvet obsession just makes them perfect for the holiday season.
Here are some commonly asked questions
Can I leave out the white chocolate chips?
Yes, of course. They aren’t necessary. You could however replace them with mini semi-sweet chocolate chips. That would make these not only just as delicious but super pretty too with those little pops of chocolate in there.
What food color do you recommend?
I really love using a soft gel food color because the pigment is more intense and makes the dough less watery. Try this one from Americolor.
