In the craziness that has been life these past few days, I realized I forgot to share the surprise Valentine’s Day dessert I made! Well, I won’t make you wait any longer.
Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies!!
I’ll give you a moment to ogle these beauts and let your mouth hang open.
I know this blog is about staying fit, and most of my recipes are healthy, but I’m a firm believer that you should never deprive yourself of something – especially these cookies! Every now and then you need an indulgent sweet to keep you on track, and a holiday is definitely one of those times.
The cookies were the perfect VDay treats because of their red color and oh-so-sweet nature, but they’d also be good on The Fourth of July, Christmas, or any other time you please!
Not only were these a cinch to make, but they also came out with a perfect crunch on the outside and a soft, gooey-ness on the inside. My boyfriend and I may or may not have eaten about a dozen in one sitting (so much for bringing leftovers to the office!). Needless to say, they’re a bit dangerous – but anything in the name of love!
As much as I would like to take credit for this recipe, I cannot. The recipe is from Two Peas and Their Pod. Maria is a cookie pro! She has so many great recipes – both savory and sweet. Check out her blog, and make these cookies – just be prepared to eat the whole batch!
Do you have any holiday-specific desserts that you like to indulge in even when it’s not the holiday?
