These soft and chewy red velvet chocolate chip cookies have all the flavors of red velvet cake in a decadent cookie! Their beautiful red color makes them perfect for Valentine’s Day!




1 1/4 cups plus 2 tbl flour

1/4 cup cocoa powder

1 cup brown sugar

1 tbl white sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking soda

1 stick butter

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp red food coloring

1 1/4 cup white chocolate chips


Cream the butter and sugars. Using a mixer fitted with the paddle attachment or using a handheld mixer, beat butter and sugars on medium speed until fluffy, about 3 minutes.

Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined. 

Mix in the dry ingredients. Add the dry ingredients and red food coloring and beat on medium-low speed just until combined.

Add the chocolate chips with a rubber spatula until evenly distributed.

Using an ice cream scoop with release, scoop out cookie dough on a baking sheet.  Bake at 350 for 13 minutes.  Do not overbake! 


Add as much or as little food coloring as your like. Depending on how dark your cocoa powder is will determine the color of your cookies. Add add more or less depending on your preference.

Do not overmix! Overmixing the cookies will result in a dense, tough cookie. Mix the dough until the chocolate chips are just combined.

Add chocolate chips on top. After scooping the cookie dough out, add a couple chips on top for the picture perfect cookie.

Tap the baking sheet after baking. Bang the cookie sheet on the counter right after the cookies come out of the oven for those crinkles everyone loves!
