Memorial Day weekend, we are here. Finally Friday. But I won’t complain, this week went rather quickly…always a good thing.
My business partner’s birthday was on Wednesday so on Tuesday evening, there was no question what was in order. I have been wanting to make these cookies ever since I Stumbled Upon them, and I had all ingredients on hand. All very few ingredients – always a good thing. Of course the recipe said it made 24 small cookies and uhh, my recipe yielded 54 very regular-sized cookies. Hm.
I somewhat recently made a Red Velvet Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting…and it was phenomenal. But if you’re looking for a red velvet recipe that’s 10x’s easier (and actually, quite a bit “lighter”), this would be it. If you exercise portion control. There’s the kicker. Is there a soul out there that doesn’t enjoy red velvet? Unlikely.
Red Velvet Cookies with White Chocolate Chips slightly adapted from Whipperberry
1 box of red velvet cake mix
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
2 cups of mini white chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a mixing bowl, add butter and mix until soft and fluffy. Slowly add cake mix and flour. Once combined, add egg and mix completely. Add white chocolate chunks, and mix for a minute or so until well combined. Form dough into one inch balls, and place into the oven for 8-10 minutes. Yield: 4 1/2 dozen cookies.

Result: Red velvet..butter..white chocolate. Take a wild guess! Mmmm! Great in a pinch, too…they come together in no time flat! Enjoy![/print_this]
I’m hopeful for some nice weather this weekend and some expanded selections at the farmer’s market tomorrow 😀 Mr. Prevention and I have nothing on the weekend calendar, and that’s pretty exciting. Relaxing weekends are the best 🙂
Question: What’s one kitchen gadget you use more than you’d think you would?
For example, I have a citrus juicer and I use it all the time. When I got it, I thought it would be something I would use on occasion, but nope…several times a week!
Happy weekend! 😀
I was only introduced to the amazingness that is Red Velvet Cake a few months ago and I have been in love since! These cookies will definitely be making their way into my mouth soon! Thanks for the recipe! 😀
Woah! It told you the yield was that much less? That NEVER happens to me…
I’m quite the cookie dough monster, but still!
YUM!! Red Velvet cookies?! Brilliant idea!!
Thanks for the recipe. I would much rather make these than the cake, because of what you said; easier and PORTION controlled!
So, the one gadget I use more than I EVER would have thought would be my mom’s old steamer. She gave it to me about 4 years ago and I thought, “oh…thanks!”. Now I use it at least once a day 🙂
When I saw the first picture, I actually said outloud, “Whoa!!” Haha…a sign of a good recipe 🙂
Are you trying to plump your readers up with all these delicious recipes lately! Red velvet is my weak spot!
MMM those cookies look so tasty!! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!! Happy Memorial Weekend!
Cake mix cookies were always a favorite of mine in college. I think my friend and I whipped up at least one batch a week!
Yeah for lazy weekends! That is what our weekend is looking like too – although I am sure we will fill it up quickly!
Those look great. Red velvet is my favorite type of cake.
The kitchen gadget I use more often than I expected is my iced tea maker. I love it!
haha at first glace, I thought those were hamburgers 🙂
I am SO bookmarking this recipe, Nicole! Thank you thank you for sharing! I heart white chocolate and Red Velvet. 🙂
Yum. These cookies look amazing. Im officially a fan of red velvet, I had never tried it before this weekend. Its freaking good. And pretty.
The kitchen gadget I use more than I ever thought I would is probably my cheese grater. I hate washing it, so I never expected to use it much (I hardly even use it for cheese, its usually carrots). But as difficult as it is, I love that thing.
So excited to see these cookies here…I just posted a red velvet cake today! Great minds think alike! 😉
Hope you have a wonderful weekend…so true, that relaxing weekends are the best!
These cookies look so yummy, I’ve never had anything red velvet before! Crazy huh lol I love the white chocolate chips, my favorite yum 😀
I LOVE red velvet cake so I am sure these taste amazing!
I can’t but love the color too! They just look so pretty!
Have a great weekend, Nicole!
oh….here it is…..easy too! Yippee!
I think they are saying GREAT weather for the weekend! Double Yippee!
Hmmm…gadget I thought I would NOT use but end up using alot? that’s a hard one….let’s just say as gadgets go, I am a gadget slut….IDK, I think I own every single gadget ever made! haha I guess if I had to choose one, it would be my garlic press….it is really nice, self cleaning and keeps my hands from stinking like garlic when I need some chopped up. Sometimes I opt for the old knife and cutting board for chopped garlic, but more often than not these days, I reach for the press. My silpat would be a close second.
enjoy your weekend, Nicole!!
My microplane for sure. I use it almost every day! That’s crazy that you made so many more cookies. The more the better though 🙂
Wow, those cookies are very photogenic! I’m sure they’re delicious too!
I have this little square rubber thingy that helps open jars and I use it ALL the time. Random, but indispensable.
Yay! Red Velvet Cookies look awesome & like the perfect treat for entertaining 🙂 Have a wonderful long weekend.
I love making cookies out of cake mixes – they come together so fast. I have never seen one using red velvet – looks amazing.
I have a citrus juicer that I use all the time – mine’s electric though.
I really love my onion goggles – they help me get through a lot of onion tears.
I just made these cookies! They are amazing! Thanks for the great recipie! 🙂
So glad you like them!
i made this but instead of the white coco chips i put milky ways and chopped them up. they taste really good. thank you for the directions and ingredients
