Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies with powdered sugar

5 from 1 reviews

These cookies are chewy outside and fudgy inside. Almost like brownie cookies. Melted chocolate is added in these and you will love it.


  • 1 stick butter (115g), softened at room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon milk, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon nutella, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoon red food coloring (liquid)
  • 1 and 3/4 cup all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup powder sugar for coating


  1. Mix butter and sugar with a spatula until creamy.
  2. Beat egg in another bowl and add it into the mixture.
  3. Add in milk, melted chocolate or nutella, vanilla and red food coloring. Mix well.
  4. Combine flour, cocoa powder, salt, baking soda in a separate bowl and gradually add this into the butter mixture. Combine everything well using a spatula.
  5. Chill the dough at least for 1 hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 350F (180C). Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  7. Scoop out 1 tablespoon of dough and make it a ball. Put 1 cup powdered sugar in a bowl and roll the cookie ball into the powdered sugar. Coat it well with powdered sugar. Place on the parchment paper. Bake for 11 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven, gently press don each and wait on the baking sheets for 5 minutes. Then let them cool completely on a wire rack.


The powdered sugar I used to coat the cookies almost melted, so I sifted some more after they partly cooled.
