Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

The red velvet cup cake is quite possibly the most trendy item in a bakery these days. So if red velvet cup cakes are so good, why not red velvet cookies? 

I came across the idea for these cookies on the web. After trying several recipes with minimal success, I decided to try it on my own. I'm quite happy with results. 

Not only are these cookies delicious, they look great too. They literally jump off the plate because people aren't used to seeing red cookies. 

They are a perfect cookie to make over the holidays this year.

If you do make them, please leave a comment and let me know how they turned out. 

Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 Cup Shortening
1 Cup White Sugar
1/2 Cup Brown Sugar (packed)
2 Eggs
2 Tsp Vanilla
1 Tbsp Red Food Colouring
1/4 Cup Cocoa
2 Cups Flour
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Salt
1 Package White Chocolate Chips

- Cream together shortening and sugars until fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time. Add the vanilla. Add the food colouring and mix well. Next add the cocoa.

- In a separate bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients and then slowly add to the mixture. Add about 4/5 of the bag of white chocolate chips.  

- Form into equal sized balls and place on a cookie sheet.

- Using the left over white chocolate chips, place about 2-3 chips into the top of the ball on each cookie, flat side up.

- Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.


  1. Add the eggs... I'm guessing 2 eggs? I'm off to buy some food colouring! :)

  2. Yes, 2 eggs. I fixed it. Thanks for pointing it out.

  3. Made these with my 3 year old. She loved mixing in the food coloring and adding the last of the chips. All in all they turned out great! Great recipe Adam!
