Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies 

The ultimate Soft-batch bakery style red velvet chocolate chip cookies packed with warm and gooey semi-sweet chocolate chips.

Red velvet cookies are my absolute favorite to make. Everyone I know loves them and with good reason.  Kids think they are magical and that it must takes hours to make.  Truth is, some adults think the red color is magic as well, as if red velvet is an actual ingredient.  It gives me a good laugh and then I politely tell them that the taste is a little cocoa powder and red food coloring is added to color it.  Truth is, most cookie recipes can be made into a red velvet recipe, but I really enjoy the soft and chewy kind with lots of chocolate chips!

Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies

Cookies are a classic dessert no matter what age or occasion.  I think we can all agree that chocolate chip cookies are the most beloved cookie of all time and for a good reason.  I love to take my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and adapt it into another cookie recipe.  Doing this allows me to still indulge in my favorite cookie without having to worry about messing something up terribly.  Most traditional cookie recipes start with the same basic ingredients and technique such as sugar and butter and then vary a little bit.
