Delicious and chewy red velvet cookies with white chocolate chips.

Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies stacked on top of each other on a wood table.

I just love red velvet. And I love white chocolate.  And I love a good cookie. These three things were combined in this delicious and vibrant red chewy cookie.

I had a girls night with my friend the other night. And what better way to start off a girls night than to bake a fresh batch of delicious cookies. My friend just had the cutest little baby girl. She is the cutest little thing and it is getting me so excited for my little girl to get here! We had a great night talking and I always love holding her little girl. But I do have to say one of the best part of our night was eating these cookies fresh out of the oven. They were chewy and so soft right out of the oven. And the white chocolate chips completed them perfectly. It was definitely a successful girls night. 🙂

  1. Just wanted to let you know that I think I’ve pinned everything you’ve blogged about on Pinterest in the last few months! Thank you for the delicious recipes and for trying them out first to make sure they work! 😉 Love your blog and I keep it in my permanent blog rotation! Keep up the good work!

  2. Would like to try these for my daughter’s valentine’s day party. But there is a kiddo with an egg allergy, how could I replace/substitute for this recipe?

  3. My little girl and I just made these tonight. They are very good! We’ve already eaten quiet a few! 🙂 We just had a problem with the white chocolate chips turning brown. Is there a trick we missed? I turned the oven temp down to 350F which helped a little bit. Otherwise, these are lovely. Thank you!

  4. Just wondering if you’ve ever had issues with the chocolate chips burning? I made two batches from this recipe and the chips came out burnt on each batch! I noticed that in your photo they aren’t the slightest bit burnt. I’m wondering if it is just my crappy oven. 🙁 The good news is, I couldn’t taste the “burntness” at all and they taste INCREDIBLE. But presentation-wise, mine aren’t pretty.

  5. Hi! I made these last night and followed your recipe exactly. They came out great, and they are beautifully bright! Right out of the oven, they were soft and gooey and perfect. My boyfriend ate five in one night. I brought them in to the office today after storing them in an air tight container and they a stiffened up a tad. They were more on the chewy side, which was still great. Though I think next time I would take them out a beat earlier than 8 minutes so that they stay soft if I make them the day before. Thanks for the recipe, I’ll be making these again!

  6. Made these just now for valentines day! They taste amazing, but they didn’t come out red at all! Can’t work it out. Thanks for a tasty treat xx


  8. Just made these tonight, thinking ahead for Valentine’s Day treats. I hadn’t read any of the comments beforehand and just wanted to say that I used a combination of mini semi-sweet and regular sized white chocolate chips with no problems with either of them burning or the white, darkening. The cookies were delish, but I had to bake longer as mine weren’t done at eight minutes! (I researched a number of recipes, choosing yours because it seemed so simple and straightforward.) Thanks so much!

  9. Hi – I made these but actually used blue food coloring b/c I am having a college send off party and college colors are blu- but- the white chocolate chips all turned brown! I put the oven at 350 and cooked a bit less- but then cookies were not done? I have a fabulous Wolf oven- any words of advice? I have 4 dozen frozen ready to cook for the party next week and want he chips to be white! Thanks- your blog is terrific:)

  10. I was wondering if i could use all butter because i cannot get shortening is very expensive were i am?
