Valentine’s Red Velvet Sandwich Cookies

Ok, so it is April and I am only just getting around to posting my Valentine’s Day baking…I am sorry. As you may now, we just bought a house and I am deep in the moving/decorating/cleaning/panicking/buying useless things on Etsy phase.

I wanted to make something cute and red for V-day, but in the end I didn’t have a ton of time to put anything elaborate together. I decided to use Bakerella’s easy idea and make some red velvet cookie sandwiches, since I had some of the cake mix on hand. They turned out delicious and very cute, but SUPER sweet, so I could only eat one (whereas my friends disagreed and had two or three or….you can imagine). I love red velvet, but Bakerella mentioned that any cake mix could do. I bet they would be delicious with a devil’s food cake chocolate mix!
