Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies

There are obviously a million ways to make chocolate chip cookies, but I will keep making them. Cookies are so easy to make and are so much easier to share than a large cake.

A Taste of Home Cooking puts on these recipe swaps and I got assigned A Cheese Curd in Paradise. I started searching this blog for a yummy Super Bowl snack or appetizer, I almost made this ever popular pizza dip, but decided to go for a sweet snack instead. The Super Bowl happened to be in February this year, so all things red velvet are fair game. I am so glad I chose these cookies, I mean red velvet, come on, delicious.

1/2 cup of Butter
1/2 cup of Sugar
1/2 cup of Light Brown Sugar
1 Egg
1 teaspoon of Vanilla
1 teaspoon of Red Food Coloring
1 1/2 cups of Flour
1 teaspoon of Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon of Salt
1/3 cup of Cocoa Powder
1/2 cup of Chocolate Chips

First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat mat.

Now, beat the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla in and mix until well combined. Add the red food coloring. Add the flour, baking soda, salt, and cocoa powder in, mix until just combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Next, use a medium cookie scoop to scoop cookies onto the baking sheet. Bake for 10-13 minutes.


Happy Cooking,
