Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies


Deborah from Taste and Tell is the queen of red velvet. She even has a whole cookbook with red velvet recipes which is where I got this perfect red velvet cupcake recipe. She definitely inspired me to start playing around with red velvet so today we bring you red velvet white chocolate chip cookies!


The key to red velvet is to either naturally color it or to use a good quality red food coloring. Also, and this one is important, there should be vinegar, buttermilk or both in the batter to give it that distinct flavor.


Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies


I hear that red velvet is a huge deal in the south. My mother in law loves red velvet cake and she’s a southern lady so she would know a good one, but I don’t have much experience. The next time we go visit I think I want to find a fabulous bakery and eat some with her. Or maybe a few bakeries and see which is best! That’s how I roll, a good old fashioned find search for the best of the best. She lives in South Carolina if any of you Carolina readers have a recommendation let me know.


Is White Chocolate Actually Chocolate?

White chocolate is a blend of sugar, cocoa butter, milk and vanilla.

Technically, white chocolate isn’t chocolate because it doesn’t contain chocolate solids.

It is referred to as “white chocolate” because of the cocoa butter.

Are White Chocolate Chips Gluten Free?

The majority of chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips, white chocolate chips and peanut butter chips are gluten free.

Why Do Cookies Go Flat?

Cookies spread for one of 3 reasons.

Butter and sugar make cookies spread, so try half butter and half shortening, or reduce the amount of sugar.

Check your oven temperature–you may need to bake a few minutes more or increase the temperature by 25 degrees.

Chill the dough before baking.

  1. I’m so glad you made these – one of my favorites!! Thanks so much for sharing!

  2. Can I assume that the step to add the flour/dry ingredients should be just before adding the white chocolate chips? It appears that step was left out! 😉
