Red Velvet "Cauldron Cookies"


This is a sponsored post by Challenge Butter, but the text and opinions are all mine. Thank you for supporting brands that make Kylee's Kitchen possible!

I'm honestly not sure why I love Halloween so much. Maybe because it was so much fun for me when I was a child. My neighbor Melanie would make handmade matching costumes for me and her two sons, and we would spend hours walking to every single house in the neighborhood. It was my favorite night of the year. I don’t think we had specific trick-or-treating hours like most cities in Indiana have now. We had to put together a list of trick-or-treating times for our FOX59 and CBS4 websites last week, and some of the towns only allow trick-or-treating for and hour and a half. That’s ridiculous! I feel bad for those kids!

I currently don’t live in a neighborhood where I can hand out candy, and I don’t know any young children who would allow me to follow along while they trick-or-treat. But that doesn’t make Halloween any less exciting for me. Halloween encompasses a lot of different themes: goofy, scary, cute, etc. And it’s all about having fun!

Each year, I try to make my Halloween treats some of my most creative recipes! A few weeks ago I had an idea to make cookies that were black on the outside and red on the inside. I came up with the idea after seeing this recipe for “Brimstone Bread.” It looks so cool, right?! I love how the black cracks so you see little peeks of red on the inside. I thought about how to do the same thing with a cookie for about a week before the idea came to me just in the nick of time: crinkle cookies rolled in black powdered sugar!

I’m sure many of you are familiar with crinkle cookies. They’re very popular around Christmas time. Essentially, it’s a cookie rolled in powdered sugar, but it gets it’s name because it cracks on top.

I started out by making red velvet cookies using red velvet cake mix. If you have a favorite “made-from-scratch” red velvet crinkle cookie recipe, by all means use that! But I use a box mix because it’s a heck of a lot easier, and we’re going to be rolling them in powdered sugar anyway.

So here’s the deal: as mentioned before, we’re going to roll the dough balls in powdered sugar before baking them, but before we do that, I recommend first rolling them in granulated sugar. The reason being is that the black powdered sugar is an essential part of how the cookie looks at the end, so we want as much of it to stay on the outside of the cookie as possible. The problem is a lot off the time the powdered sugar is soaked up by the fat in the cookie when it bakes, so it disappears for the most part. By rolling the dough in the granulated sugar first, we are creating a barrier between the cookie and the powdered sugar which will help it stay on the outside of the cookie better. I even took it one step further, and I rolled my cookies in black sanding sugar (it looks like black sprinkles) to ensure the effect I wanted was achieved.

After rolling the dough in granulated sugar comes the powdered sugar, of course. But not just any powdered sugar, black powdered sugar. It’s very easy to make! Just blend about a half cup of powdered sugar with gel black food coloring in a food process until it starts to turn black. If it won’t get any blacker, add a little cocoa powder if you want to enhance the effect. Don’t add too much cocoa powder, though, because you don’t want to change the taste of the cookie!

That’s all there is to it! Bake about 10 to 12 minutes until the cookies are just barely set. The black powdered sugar does get your fingers a little messy, but it’s totally worth it!

Also, in case you’re curious, I’m calling them cauldron cookies because I think they look like hot coals burning under a cauldron!

Red Velvet “Cauldron Cookies”
Yield: Makes about 2 dozen cookies
Ingredients
  • 1 (15.25 ounce) box red velvet cake mix
  • 6 tablespoons Challenge butter, melted
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • Black gel food coloring
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar (or black sanding sugar)
Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
  2. In a large bowl, combine red velvet cake mix, butter, eggs, and vanilla extract. Put in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes so the dough is easier to work with.
Add powdered sugar and black food coloring to food processor and pulse until the powdered sugar starts to turn black. It will probably turn more gray than black, but that’s okay. You can add cocoa powder in 1 Tablespoon increments if you want the color to be a little deeper.
  3. Place the powder sugar and granulated sugar in separate, shallow dishes.
  4. Scoop out a 1-inch diameter ball of dough. Roll it in the sugar to coat before transferring it to the powdered sugar and rolling to coat. 
  5. Place dough on baking sheet and bake 10 to 12 minutes until cookies are just barely set. 
  6. Remove cookies from oven and let cool before serving.

    1. I am delighted I stumbled into great reviews about XAPCREDITSOLUTION AT GMAIL on how he helps fix credit, chex system, DUI repair and other credit related issues. After I did my due diligence, I contacted XAP Credit Solution through the above email and narrated my problem and how I would want to proceed with fixing my credit report with XAP. He confirmed he will increase my score from low 540 to 780 which he did in less than two weeks, he removed all the collections and charge offs I had and also added some tradelines to my report. I completely recommend XAP to everyone in need of a credit specialist. Do well to let XAP know David Lane referred you.

  6. I was riding high enjoying my score when I got a collection notice for “Brightspeed” which I had never heard of for a little over $100. Long story short I found out that Brightspeed was a CenturyLink-a DSL provider that I ditched shortly after the consent of the Pandemic in favor of Comcast for the internet as video conferencing over DSL was impossible. Fast forward to three years later they came that I never paid my last bill or something to that effect. I got maybe two letters and a couple of phone calls and had intention on making them work for it by sending a dispute letter. Then I got busy and never did. I got an alert that my score had changed and when I logged in it felt like a punch. My credit report is full of flaws which also brought down my credit score. I needed a credit repair company to help me boost my score until a friend mentioned to me PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST. I’m not good at telling stories but permit me to share my experience with PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST, so I contacted PINNACLE I explained to him about all the negative items on my report with total debt. He said to me: Yes! I can fix it in 6 days! I was excited. I’m now excited that my credit score has been increased to 811 across the credit board, He went ahead to add positive trade lines to my report and cleared the debts I heard. Contact them via: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM I’m saying all this here because I don’t think anyone deserves to miss the train; Or won’t you want to end the bad credit you got? Do let him know I referred you. Thanks

  7. Hello everyone I want to sincerely appreciate PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST for the dedication and time they put on working my credit. I needed help. My FICO mortgage scores were 510, 518, 557. All my FICO 8s are between 600-626. All credit cards, student loans, and a car have been paid on time for the last 4 years, with the exception of 1 late payment to Capital One and they will not budge to remove it. I have 6 old Cos that will fall off in 2025, and I have a collection from Jefferson Capital for $5400 for a car that was turned in back in 2018. I have disputed all these items several times with no luck. When I asked for proof that Jefferson legally had the right to collect this debt, since I had also received notices in the mail from 3 other collection agencies for the same debt. Each time all I got in response from the bureaus was a statement that the information was validated. I desperately needed help to raise my FICO 5, 4, and 2 ASAP. Until I read about PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST, I contacted them after reading some testimonies about them. They ran my credit report, analysed the credit score and determined which action will have the greatest impact. They raised my credit score to 806 and deleted all negative items on my credit report within 6 days. They made it work and I have a clean credit profile now. My heart is full of gratitude. You can reach them by email: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM

  8. Hire A Reputable Crypto Recovery Agent Onis Digital Hacker

    My name is Ciara,I'm a content manager residing in Germany. Last month, I was duped online when I was introduced to a cryptocurrency trading website by a ''international broker'' on the internet, as he claimed to be. He persuaded me till I agreed to invest $132,000 with him. When my account reached a profit of $332,000, it was frozen, and I was asked to pay a large tax to enable my withdrawals. I decided to look for a bitcoin expert on Google. During my study, I came across Onis Digital Hacker, a reputable hacker with special cyber skills required to recover lost funds. I contacted Onis Digital Hacker and appealed to him for assistance to help me recover my funds. His service was excellent. I wholeheartedly suggest them to anyone who has been duped out of their funds.

  9. Months ago I planted a seed here. My credit report was lit in red like a Christmas tree of nothing but bad checks. My goal at first was a 680 score, to qualify for a mortgage. That turned into 700…then 710…eventually I entered the 800 club. That 800 club then got me into the 800 teen club. Today I was notified that my Equifax passed the 800 teen club. 821! What was hard to qualify for a $500 credit card now makes it easy to get a $5000 credit card. What was hard to get a $1 credit line increase, makes it easy to get $1000. What was hard to get a lower credit card interest (that actually resulted in getting higher interest) now is easy to make and generally results in a lower rate. How I got to this point was from the help of PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST and the help I received from this board. It takes time, effort and determination. The pay in the end is great. I don’t regret working with PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST. When I started I wanted everything fixed overnight but he said no he has to go one bit at a time to avoid a trace. He started with what they know is easy and worked my credit up. That’s how I got here. His an angel in human form don’t fail to hit him up on email: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM

  11. I remember in 2023, my credit score was terrible, I had so many collection accounts and would not approve of anything. I had rental debt, charge offs, student loans, tax liens from my credit report. I was then introduced to DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION by Michael Wayne who is my attorney. I immediately contacted them by email: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM / +1 713 396 5299. Within 9 days my credit score went up from 571 to 801 across the 3 credit bureaus and I’ve been able to get a home loan and eligible for several credit cards. I will always recommend DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION to anyone who desires to have a better credit life. Cheers!

  12. Hi, guys, let’s talk about the FICO score, those important 3-digit numbers that determine your quality of life no matter your status. Well earlier in 2023 I had a really bad credit score. I would often surf the net searching for real hackers that could help increase my credit score. Well as expected I got swindled twice. Eventually I gave up my search and concluded that it wasn’t possible for hackers to increase credit scores. The good news is that I read on a credit forum about DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION. I was pessimistic at first, but I decided to give it a try. To my greatest surprise, within 9 days DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION was able to boost my score to an excellent score, not only that they added some positive remarks on it. In conclusion, if you have a bad credit score you might want to contact them by email: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM OR Call (713) 396-5299.

  13. Hello everyone! Ok…I’ll try to shorten this as best I can. After many years of marriage, I finally got divorced about three years ago. My ex-wife had major spending issues. Both of us have very good jobs. She is a physician and I’m a pharmacist/software engineer. We are both high earners, but she spent like the money was endless. We had a $2 million home in Miami, new cars every couple years, and her credit card spending was out of control. It was to the point that she was racking my credit cards up as well. I finally decided enough was enough and I left. Moved to the other side of the country with extreme amounts of debt. In a two years period I paid off almost $240,000 of debt. Some of it had gone to collections, and some of it had not. But my credit score was in the toilet. I have been a software engineer for a long time. I had not practiced pharmacy in many years though I kept my license active. My software engineering has always been around pharmacy systems. So, I started working three jobs. Software engineer during the day, working as a pharmacist part time during the evenings and weekends, and doing telephonic patient counseling for medication. I was constantly tired. But paid off every penny of the debt I had including student loans. I owe no one anything now. The real problem was my credit score was in the mid-600s. That was equally embarrassing. I went a little crazy looking for hackers to help me increase my credit score until a colleague recommended DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION to me. I quickly searched about them and discovered they had so many positive reviews that I quickly contacted them by email: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM / I also gave them a call +1 (713) 396-5299. They responded swiftly, and I explained my predicament to them, which they accepted to boost my credit score to an excellent score. To my greatest surprise after 9 days, I got a call from them by 7:00AM to confirm my current credit score, which I quickly logged into Credit Karma and discovered my score has been boosted to 800s across the credit bureaus. They also deleted all the collections and inquiries on my credit report. I have no regrets working with DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION. Hit them up if you have any credit related issues. I’m now well qualified credit wise.

  14. I had a $400 fresh account with Fingerhut, after realizing the amount of interest they were charging me (I didn’t know about credit at the time), I decided to close the account. I called the customer service phone number and requested the representative to close the account. Monday, January 8, 2024, I decided to check my credit report and noticed it has been open since 2020. Called the Fingerhut collection department regarding the account. How is it currently reporting open if I closed it in 2016? There’s a remaining balance of $495. My credit score was 502. I felt horrible and embarrassed. But my friend James introduced me to DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION, a credit repair company and they helped me to raise my credit score to 810 excellent standard and deleted all negative items on my credit report within 8 days. He also helped me increase my credit card limit to $15,000 and placed some good tradelines on my report. DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION is the best amongst all, and his service is fast, secured and reliable without stress. Contact him by email: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM / +1 (713) 396 5299, for any kind of credit repair. They’re swift in responding to any question.
