Can you believe that we are just about halfway through summer? The days have flown by, its just crazy. I am trying to get a jump start on the upcoming holidays and events. These Red Velvet, White and Blue Cookies are the perfect way to welcome in any patriotic holiday.
With the Fourth of July just around the corner these cookies are the perfect treat to have a bang up holiday! I think I must really enjoy making cookies because I just keep making them. LOL! I guess I enjoy making cookies because they are so easy to make, the mess is easy to clean and who doesn’t love a good cookie.
These Red Velvet, White and Blue Cookies start with a cake mix. How easy can that be? These cookies are soft and chewy just the way I like them. dipping them in the candy helps to keep them fresh and moist. The blue sprinkles? Well those are just for fun. You could actually use any colored sprinkles you want for any occasion. You all know I love my sprinkles. I do have a few favorite things I use when making my cookies and when dipping anything in candy melts. I will share those with you below.
