Red Velvet Thumbprints

My girl could be a huge fan (she requested this Red Velvet gameboard Cake for her birthday!), however the better half, well, not most. The token quantity of cocoa power doesn’t end in associate ooey, adhesive chocolate treat like he’d like.

But, despite his persnickety surface, he white-haired these red velvet fingerprint cookies. World Health Organization wouldn’t be a disciple of those buttery sugar cookies with a mega dose of red food color which little bit of cocoa lidded with either a chocolate wafer or a chocolate Hug??? They were a hit!
