Can you tell that I have been salivating over sweets lately? Or, that I am a true sucker for red velvet. I am not a huge chocolate cake fan, but there is just something about the red velvet that I adore. Maybe because the chocolate taste is not overwhelming. Half of my wedding cake was red velvet, and it is funny because, before I met my husband, I had never really had it before. I am from the West coast, and back in the day, before it blew up in popularity across the country, it wasn't really a popular choice where I am from. Now, I want everything red velvet, and I know you do too.
I love this recipe because it is from a box, and you just need to add a couple of ingredients to make them into cookies. I might add some extra white chocolate chunks though.
Red Velvet Cookies with White Chocolate Chunks
1 box of Red Velvet Cake Mix
1 cup of All-Purpose Flour
2 sticks of softened butter
2 cups of White Chocolate Chunks or chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl, add butter and mix until soft and fluffy. Slowly add cake mix and flour. Once combined, add egg and mix completely. Add white chocolate chunks, and mix for a minute or so until well combined. Form dough into one inch balls, and place into the oven for 8-10 minutes. Yields about 24 small cookies.
