Pregnancy Belly | Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies | NewMamaDiaries.blogspot.comRed Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies  

I had actually been eyeing these for a while, as well as those delicious looking red velvet brownies that I always see on Pinterest.  I decided to finally try out one of these recipes, but as you all know I always put my own spin on it.  Usually this spin is just adding more vanilla extract and chips to the recipe, lol, but hey its still a spin.  I have to say they turned out delightful, although rich like red velvet always is.  The recipe I used was super easy and inexpensive, and took less than 30 minutes to put together.

What I used:
1 box of Red Velvet cake mix.  I used Duncan Hines
8 oz of cream cheese.  I used Philadelphia, but any good quality kind will work just as good.
1/2 cup of unsalted butter
1 egg
2 teaspoons of vanilla extract
2 cups of white chocolate chips

How I did it:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Beat together the cream cheese and butter until well combined. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Add the cake mix and beat until well combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.

Roll dough into tablespoon sized balled and place on a non-stick cookie sheet or one lined with parchment. Bake for 9-11 minutes, the top and outside of cookie will be set, but the center will be moist and gooey.  Once cookies cool, they will have a moist, gooey, yet fluffy airy texture.  They hold together very well, but are very light and the taste is oh so rich!


Cool before eating, especially because of the gooey center these cookies need a minute or so to set up.

  2. I've never been a huge fan of Red Velvet, mostly because it was just "okay" and I'm not a huge fan of the cream cheese frosting that always seems to go with it. But these look really good! I've made chocolate cookies from a cake mix before and they were really good. So this might just change my mind!

    1. I'm a traditionalist, so I typically only like red velvet in the cake/cupcake form. I think that's what took me so long to try these out. I didn't want to be disappointed, and I'm glad I wasn't! These are definitely worth a go!

    1. Awesome! I was much like your son when I was a kid, always in the
      kitchen with my mom while she was cooking and baking. My fave part
      was getting to have the spoon and bowl at the end!

      Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all enjoy the cookies.
