Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies

Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 and 1/2 cups + 1 Tablespoon (198g) all-purpose flour (spoon & leveled)
  • 1/4 cup (21g) unsweetened natural cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (150g) packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg at room temperature*
  • 1 Tablespoon milk (I use buttermilk)
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 Tablespoon red food coloring (liquid gel or 2 tsp beet powder alternative)*
  • 1 cup (180g) semi-sweet chocolate chips (plus a few extra for after baking)

Instructions

  1. Whisk the flour cocoa powder baking soda and salt together in a large bowl. Set aside.
  2. Using a handheld or stand mixer with a paddle attachment beat the butter on high speed until creamy about 1 minute. Scrape down the sides and the bottom of the bowl as needed. Beat in the brown sugar and granulated sugar until combined and creamy about 1 minute. Beat in the egg milk and vanilla extract scraping down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed. Once mixed add the food coloring and beat until combined. Turn the mixer off and pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Turn the mixer on low and slowly beat until a very soft dough is formed. Beat in more food coloring if you’d like the dough to be brighter red. On low speed beat in the chocolate chips. The dough will be sticky.
  3. Cover the dough tightly with aluminum foil or plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour (and up to 3 days– see make ahead tip). Chilling is mandatory.
  4. Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
  5. Scoop 1.5 Tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball as pictured above. Place 9 balls onto each baking sheet. Bake each batch for 11-12 minutes. The cookies may have only spread slightly that’s ok. Simply press down on the warm cookies to slightly flatten and form crinkles. Stick a few chocolate chips into the tops of the warm cookies (as explained in the post above) – that’s optional and only for looks.
  6. Allow the cookies to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  7. Notes
  8. Make Ahead & Freezing Instructions: Cookies stay fresh covered at room temperature for up to 1 week. You can make the cookie dough and chill it in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Allow to come to room temperature then continue with step 4. Baked cookies freeze well for up to 3 months. Unbaked cookie dough balls freeze well for up to 3 months. Bake frozen cookie dough balls for an extra minute no need to thaw. Click here for my tips and tricks on freezing cookie dough.
  9. Egg: Room temperature egg is preferred. To bring egg to room temperature quickly simply place in a cup of warm water for 5 minutes. I usually set out my egg when I set out my butter to soften about 1 hour before beginning.
  10. Beet Powder: I’ve successfully made these cookies using beet powder instead of red food coloring – this is a wonderful natural alternative to food coloring. Use 2 teaspoons for a slight red color to your cookies.
