Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Cookie Season! 

It’s that time of year again where cookies steal the show. And to celebrate cookie season, I have made Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies dipped in cream cheese frosting, and of course, it wouldn’t be a celebration without SPRINKLES!

These Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies will be the perfect cookie to bring to a cookie exchange, or piled high on a platter at a holiday party. And to make sure you have all the cookie making essentials you will need, I have an exciting GIVEAWAY for you {scroll down to the bottom to enter for a chance to WIN!}.

Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies


 DON’T OVERMIX: With almost all my cookie recipes, I always make sure to remind you to not OVERMIX  the cookie dough. Meaning, when you mix the flour mixture into the wet ingredients, only mix them together until just combined…you should still see some flour in your mixing bowl.

SCOOPING THE COOKIE DOUGH:  I always use a 1 Tablespoon cookie scoop, each cookie dough ball has “2 scoops” of cookie dough, meaning that each cookie dough ball is 2 Tablespoons in size. In my opinion, this is the perfect sized cookie. If you don’t have a cookie scoop, you can use an ice cream scooper but you will only need 1 ice cream scoop of cookie dough.

And to make it super easier for you to learn how to scoop the perfect cookie, I created a step-by-step guide on How To Scoop The Perfect Cookie 



Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: 12 Large Cookies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 14-15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 12 Tablespoons UNSALTED butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons red food coloring
  • 1 1/2 cups milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup canned cream cheese frosting
  • sprinkles


PRE-STEP: Preheat oven to 370F degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.

STEP 1: Whisk together the flour, baking soda, cocoa powder and salt in a medium size bowl. Set aside.

STEP 2: In a large bowl, using an electric or stand mixer, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, light brown sugar, and vanilla extract until combined.

STEP 3: Add eggs one at a time, mixing between each egg.

STEP 4: Add flour mixture and mix until just combined. You should still see some flour.

STEP 5: Add red food coloring and mix until dough turns red. Using a spatula, stir in chocolate chips until combined.

STEP 6: Using a cookie scoop/ice cream scooper, scoop dough into balls about 2 Tablespoons each and place onto prepared baking sheet.

STEP 7: Bake for 10 minutes, rotate baking sheet clockwise and bake for additional 4-5 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.

STEP 8: Immediately after taking cookies out of the oven, place additional chocolate chips on top of cookies and top. Let cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet before moving them to a wire rack. Cool completely before frosting.

STEP 9: In a small bowl microwave frosting for 10 to 20 seconds or just until melted; stir.

STEP 10: Dip half of each cookie into melted frosting. Top with sprinkles.


* STORE: Cookies will stay fresh for up to 7 days in an airtight container, stored at room temperature.

* FREEZING: Roll the dough into balls and place them in an airtight container. You can freeze the cookie dough for up to 2 months. To bake, place frozen cookie dough balls onto prepared baking sheet and bake for 16-18 minutes.

    When it comes to baking, it’s so hard to choose a favorite anything! Homemade ginger snaps are always great though.

    I like chocolate chip cookies made with brown butter. Dark chocolate is a must as are pecans!
