  • 1 recipe Red Velvet Cookies
  • 1 recipe Cream Cheese Frosting
  • Midnight colored sprinkles (see note)
  • Snowflake sprinkles (see note)
  • Black Decorator Icing (see note)
  • Gem or sparkly sprinkles (see note)
  • Violet gel food coloring


  • Make cookies as directed, cool.
  • Make frosting as directed. Frost cookies as desired. Pictured frosting used a Wilton round tip to pipe swirls, but you can also just frost the cookies. Leave a bit of frosting aside for the Lavender Haze cookies.
  • Midnights Cookies: Sprinkle with sprinkles.
  • Snow on the Beach Cookies: Place snowflakes on top.
  • Bejeweled Cookies: Sprinkle with gem or sparkly sprinkles.
  • Meet me at Midnight Cookies: Pipe clock hands at midnight with decorator icing.
  • 13 Cookies: Pipe a 13 with decorator icing.
  • Lavender Haze Cookies: Color a bit of the frosting with violet food coloring. Lay out a sheet of plastic wrap and put both white and purple frosting on it. Wrap it up in a log and cut off one tip - place in piping bag. Frost as desired. See note for link to a post that explains this.


  • Snowflake sprinkles - you can find these at craft stores and online
  • Black decorator icing - you can buy the little tubes in the baking aisle or color some of the frosting black.
  • Here is a frosting tutorial for the swirled frosting.
  • Sprinkles: Many craft stores have fun sprinkle mixes, or buy single colors and mix your own. For fancier sprinkles, I love shopping at Sweetapolita (the one shown is from their advent calendar). Check out their Luxe line for the bejeweled cookies. For the midnight sprinkles here are some options: Fairy Tale, Obsessed, or Sugar Rush. You can also check out Fancy Sprinkles for other options.
