More About This Recipe

  • Nothing says romance and love like red velvet. And these Red Velvet Cookies with white chocolate chips nestled inside really take the cake.

    Most people go gaga for red velvet cake, but I’ve always been more of a cookie girl -- so I thought I would search for a mix between the two.

    My compromise was this: Red Velvet Cookies with White Chocolate Chips -– a hybrid of the classic red velvet cake and cookies.

    The magic starts with a Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix and then with just a few clever add-ins, like sour cream and cocoa powder, fluffy red velvet cookies can be in your oven in less than twenty minutes.

    I think the thing that captivates people the most about red velvet is the vibrant color. Look how beautiful this red dough is studded with bright white chocolate chips.

    For those of you loyal cake lovers, we all know that the best part of red velvet cake, or any cake for that matter, is the frosting. So of course we had to carry that element over and frost our red velvet cookies. Just slather on a thick layer of frosting and add a sprinkle of nuts.

    Whether you’re making a sweet for your honey or just for yourself, these gorgeous cookies are easy, sexy, and say, “I love you!”
