Red Velvet Chip Cookies


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream or milk*
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon red food coloring
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Cream butter and sugars together until fluffy. Add egg, vanilla, and heavy cream and combine until smooth. Beat in red food coloring. Stir in cocoa, flour, baking soda and salt until just combined. Fold in chocolate chips.
  3. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop out 1 tablespoon of dough and set on baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes.
  4. *If you are using liquid food dye, you will need less heavy cream. I suggest leaving the heavy cream as the last step (before chocolate chips) and adding as needed.
