Red Velvet anything is perfect for Valentine’s Day or even Christmas because of its rich red color. That’s why I am loving these Red Velvet Donuts I think they make the perfect Valentine’s Day Donuts. Don’t you think?
Red Velvet Donuts – Perfect Valentine’s Day Donuts
I love this red color for Valentine’s Day cookies, cakes, cupcakes, and donuts! Pair it with white and pink and everyone will love it!
Many love cream cheese frosting with red velvet but I love using this melted chocolate glaze for them. Just a preference!
A few notes!
Now I use a Red Velvet cake mix to make this recipe easier but if you a bake from scratch person you can use your favorite red velvet cake recipe instead! I don’t have one so I just made it easier on myself and you!
I used pink and white as my donut frosting but you can use red too, I just didn’t think it looks as nice with the red donut, but that’s my personal opinion. Also, I used the light pink candy melt, you can use a brighter pink if you want them to pop as well.
I shared the sprinkles I used below but I also these Wilton Jumbo Heart Sprinkles would look really cute too!
