Ooops, another dessert. I didn’t mean for it to happen. It had actually been crazy busy all day, but when I opened the fridge for dinner I realized that there was still a bunch of, well a secret that I needed to use up pronto. And without even thinking twice these 3 ingredient red velvet chocolate cookies were born. And you seriously cannot tell what the secret ingredient is. But like these peppermint oreo cookies they come together in no time.
Just look at that pretty chocolate! I can seriously taste it right now. And I guess it should technically be 4 ingredients because Iadded chocolate chips, but they are totally optional. I just don’t think we can be friends anymore if you don’t add them. Kidding. Kind of.
Is Red Velvet Just Chocolate Cake?
Red Velvet cake is not just chocolate cake with red dye.
Red velvet is made with cocoa powder, vinegar and buttermilk.
The chemical reaction between these ingredients help give the cake a deep maroon color.
Food coloring is often added to enhance the red color.
Can You Use Fresh Pumpkin Instead of Canned Pumpkin?
Canned pumpkin is just cooked, pureed pumpkin.
You can cook and puree fresh pumpkin instead of using canned pumpkin.
A 16 ounce can of pumpkin equals 2 cups of pureed pumpkin.
