How to make Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies.
- You will need some melted butter, a large egg and an egg yolk. You also need some brown or white sugar, some Cocoa powder and some red food coloring.
- The extra egg yolk helps with the structure and texture.
- Refrigerating the dough also helps with structure so I highly recommend it.
- Melted butter helps with the chewy and dense structure if you don’t melt the butter. It tends to incorporate more air when you beat it the sugar which gives Cake-y cookie. Which is equally delicious but not what we are aiming for.
- Baking for about 15 minutes instead 18 mins will also help with a soft chewy cookie. In other words I tend to undertake them to get a softer chewy center. If you prefer a firmer cookie. Bake for up to 18 mins.
How to make Red Velvet Chocolate Chip cookie bars
To make red velvet chocolate chip cookie bars, bake the cookie dough in a 9 by 9 in cake pan and cut into bars when the cookie is baked.
Can I freeze the cookie dough
The red velvet cookie dough can be made ahead.
- Make the dough, form dough balls
- Freeze balls on a parchment paper lined baking sheet till completely frozen.
- Transfer frozen dough balls to a freezer bag. Freeze for up to 3 months.
- When you are ready to bake them, bake straight from the freezer for 20 mins.
- Alternatively, thaw dough balls overnight in the refrigerator and bake as you would bake an initial batch that wasn’t frozen.

These cookies will keep for up to a week in a cookie jar. If it stays that long.
