A few years ago I had a client that would bring me these red velvet cookies. They were so good and we’re usually gone before I left the gym for the day.




While I do have a ‘from scratch’ recipe for red velvet cake, I wasn’t sure how it would turn into cookies. So I went with this one. Admittedly, after baking from scratch all weekend, I was relieved to use a box mix. I was exhausted!



Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

The additions are simply eggs, vanilla and oil. It is so easy to make!

I love how pretty the red dough looks. It also dies your hands red. And your teeth. Not that I’d know about that…

IMG_2784




It gets even better with the chocolate chips added in.

The mix is very doughy, so it is easy to roll them into balls.

Look how gorgeous. I love the red color. And for those of you who were asking – these do not have a cake-like texture. It is more of a chewy chocolate chip cookie. Drool.

If it is even possible, they can be made better with some with cream cheese frosting.

Red Velvet Chocolate Chips Cookies

1 box Red Velvet cake mix

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/3 cup vegetable oil

3/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350.

In an electric mixing bowl, combine cake mix, oil, eggs, and vanilla. Mix until a dough forms. Fold in chocolate chips. Roll into balls and bake at 350 for 8 minutes.

Makes about 24 cookies.

You have to make these now. And if you do, feel free to send me some. They have somehow disappeared.




Check out what I’ve made for the holidays so far. :)

    There’s a hotel I used to stay at in New Orleans that served complimentary red velvet cupcakes each AM. It was lovely — if only they’d be vegan! Yours look awesome.

    I just made these, and they’re baking in my oven right now.
    But I have a question… I used the correct amount of ingredients and everything, but my dough was really shiny and oily. Did I do something wrong?

    Reply

    • Jessica — October 21st, 2010 @ 3:22 pm

      Hmmm not sure – mine was not like that and I haven’t heard that problem yet? Maybe it was the temperature of the butter or the food coloring you used?? Let me know how they turn out!

    • Jessica — October 21st, 2010 @ 3:23 pm

      Oops sorry – just realized that these were the ones made with the boxed mix. I haven’t made them in a year, but I do kind of remember it being a shiny dough.
