These Red Velvet Cookies from a cake mix are so-o good! And SO easy to make!

It is a shortcut recipe with just a few ingredients. It takes just a few minutes from start to finish!

My cookies pictured above have semi-sweet chocolate chips and macadamia nuts, but you can use whatever chips and nuts you want. Leave out the chopped nuts if you want!

It is a very moist and chocolatey cookie! Red Velvet is one of my favorite flavors.

I love this recipe!

For Christmastime, use red and green chocolate chips!

See the steps to make them in the slideshow below.
