I told you I would have a few posts including these Kool-Aid packets I purchased recently, so here is another one. Not only are these cookies super cute and pink for Valentine's Day, they are pretty tasty too. Elijah told me no less than 5 times that they were the "best cookies ever"! Originally I was just going to throw in the Kool-Aid and call it a day, but then I found these red velvet M&M's and my mind was blown. Why is the heck didn't they have these back at Christmas to use in some kind of red velvet cookies with crushed candy cane pieces mixed in?
So, basically, these cookies are as simple as, whipping up a batch of basic homemade cookie mix, then throwing in:
- 2 Cherry flavored Kool-Aid Singles packets
- 1/2 cup Red Velvet M&M's
Bake according to directions.
I also took a packet of the Cherry Kool-Aid mix and mixed it with milk to go along with the cookies. Why didn't I think of this before? Do you ever think you are the first person ever to come up with an idea only to go over to Pinterest and discover you are like 2 decades late to that game? I'm not even going over there to check. Kool-Aid Milk... Yep, I invented it! Ha!
