Oh Yes I Did. Call me a visual junky but it’s something about the way red velvet looks that makes me feel like I’m staring at a lava lamp. Intrigued. Mesmerized. Chump. It’s just red food coloring. Perhaps it’s the lack of food coloring that makes me feel to drawn to it. I mean I don’t really know what Blue-17 and Red-98 look like so the colors that end up in my Slush Puppie don’t really excite me the same way. I went off of Paula Deen’s recipe for Red Velvet cookies but slightly modified it so I can live to write this post. These cookies erupted into large red pillows.
After admiring the edible red earmuffs, I let them cool and introduced them to their new lover: vanilla ice cream. They quickly hit it off and made chocolate sprinkle babies which peppered the cylinder. The babies added some crunch to what was a very soft family. Thumbs up to red food coloring-1!
