Yep, I am all about the red velvet at the moment, but guess what these are the best red velvet cookies I’ve ever had! I was thinking of making whoopie pies with them, but the moment they were cool enough to eat Mr. Picky ate half of them so I didn’t stand a chance. But seriously these cookies are perfect. They are moist and chewy, almost cakey but not quite, and chocolaty just amazing! And make sure you don’t have pizza after them, just don’t…gash I need to workout today… And by the way the new season of the Voice started last night and can I just say I am in love with Adam Levine(hottie), even though his sense of style is questionable lol.
Comments: Red velvet and cookies. Chocolate chips. Enough said.
Negatives: Don’t really prefer using food coloring but these are worth it. Also I’m very impatient so I hate waiting for the dough to chill.
Will I make these again? Sure! Especially for Valentine’s day 🙂
