These are my new favourite!
Chocolate crinkle cookies are a holiday classic. I love the snowy effect on each yummy cookie. These red velvet ones just take that goodness to the next level with an added pop of holiday colour. Still crunchy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside, you have got to give these Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies a try!
Disappointed not to see chocolate? Hey don’t be fooled… there’s white chocolate in these yummy babies.

Want to try. Any substitution for the red food coloring?
All of these alternatives will work.
1. Hibiscus flowers steeped in a bit of hot water until cooled
2. Boiled cranberry juice
3. Red beet juice
4. Red beet powder
5. Pomegranate juice
HOWEVER, they will effect the flavour, so I am not sure they work for this recipe.
Can we freeze them?
Yes, for sure!
