Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies

A twist on the classic chocolate chip cookie. It looks interesting and tastes great. You could make a batch of them for the holiday season or for Valentine’s Day.

I know I’m not the first person to make these, but I honestly thought these looked so cute so I wanted to make my own. In my recipe, I used powdered food colouring. If you don’t have that, gel or water food colouring would work as well. Just adjust the amount for the colour payoff you want. If you want to go all natural you can omit the food colouring.


  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature (1 stick)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 1/8 tsp powdered red food colouring
  • 1 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup white chocolate chips


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F or 175° C and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat.
  1. Cream the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Then add in the egg, milk, vanilla extract, and food colouring. Mix until all is well combined and the food colouring is no longer streaky.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together, then add it to the butter and sugar mixture and mix. Once it’s all well combined, use a rubber spatula to fold in the chocolate chips.
  3. Take one ball of cookie dough, roughly 1 1/2 tbsp, and roll it into a ball and place it on the prepared baking sheet. If you want the cookies to look better, strategically place a few chocolate chips on top of the balls.
  4. Fill the entire baking sheet, then bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes.
  5. Once they’re out of the oven, let them cool down a bit and enjoy them warm.
