Red Velvet Crinkle Kisses

As I have said in this post, I don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. For some bloggers, they prepare their own treats to post before or on Valentine’s Day. To go with the trend, I decided to make something as well. ๐Ÿ˜€ Besides, who doesn’t love sweets?

thenotsocreativecook-RedVelvetCrinkleKissesChocolate Crinkles is one of the cookies I love so much. I remember when I was still in the University, me and my friend has this meeting place (aka internet cafe). We used to meet there to just surf the net and do some homework. I think we had our own computers at home, but young adults need to get away from home sometimes. ๐Ÿ˜€ Like me, she loves the Chocolate Crinkles, so we always get ourselves some from the bakeshop nearby the internet cafe before we go to our meeting place or before we go to our separate homes.

Now, I earn my own money and I know how to bake. The only thing I’d worry about is how am I going to finish those Chocolate Crinkles. ๐Ÿ˜€ Uh, I don’t think I have to stress myself with that as these Crinkles are going to be a hit.

thenotsocreativecook-RedVelvetCrinkleKisses4Chocolate Crinkles first appeared here on my blog, but I am not using the same recipe for today’s post. I was not even planning to make a batch of these, but you know how much I love Laura – she has this so inviting expression that makes you want to make the stuff she makes, like immediately. And that’s what I did… days after I saw her video.

I am sharing these lovely cookies with my friends at Fiesta Friday #54 hosted by Angie, with the help of two amazing ladies – Sonal and Josette. I am super late, but it’s better late than never. ๐Ÿ˜› Besides, I know you’ll love these that you’ll forget that I came late. ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy weekend!!

    1. I feel so sorry for myself that I have found the party a little late. But I will be joining whenever I can.:) Thanks, Helen. See you at the next party. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Oooh that just gave me some inspiration – I ordered a bag of cherry kisses from an American colleague and he sent 3… So before I dig into 3 bags I think I’d rather keep 2 and do some baking with them!

  2. These are just PERFECT for Valentine’s Day! I love chocolate crinkles too… I make them for Christmas with a little bit of instant espresso in the dough- SO good. Looks like I need a Valentine’s Day version!! Thank you so much for bringing these beauties to the party so everyone could make them to celebrate (or not celebrate!) next weekend! Happy FF! ๐Ÿ™‚ Josette

  3. You are not late at all girl! These look fabulous. Chocolate crinkle cookies turned red velvet ones ๐Ÿ˜€. Love these and soooooo happy to see you here.
    You earn your money, you bake your cookie, you gotta eat it too…right!! Just stash 2 for me on the side. I will fetch them when the party is over. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. My post was ready from yesterday, Sonal. I just needed to insert the recipe and photos, but I really had an exhausting week that I can’t even open the computer and finish the post. :/ Gladly, I had my time today. Whew! I thought I’m not gonna make it. Oh my, that would not be good as I can’t go on forward without FF. ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for being here, Sonal. I am really happy. And thanks again for co-hosting. โค
