I made some Red Velvet chocolate chip cookies for my colleagues before. I gave my son a taste of the extra cookies and he liked it. I think he just likes chocolate chip cookies. This Red Velvet chocolate chip cookie was learned online, but I made a slight adjustment myself and shared it with my friends here.
- 196g all-purpose flour
- 21g unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 115g unsalted butter (softened at room temperature)
- 140g brown sugar
- 40g granulated sugar
- 1 large egg (room temperature)
- 1 tablespoon of milk
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- red food coloring
- 180g dark chocolate drops
1. Sift flour and cocoa powder into a large bowl, add baking soda and salt, mix well and set aside (Picture 1).
2. Using a hand mixer, beat the softened butter on high speed until creamy, about 1 minute (Picture 2). Then add brown sugar and granulated sugar and beat until combined and creamy, about 1 1/2 minutes (sugar and butter are evenly combined).
3. Beat in eggs, milk, and vanilla extract, then add food coloring and mix well (Picture 3).
4. Pour in the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt), turn the mixer to low speed, and mix slowly until a very soft dough forms. If you want the dough to be brighter, you can add more red food coloring to the desired shade (I poured in quite a lot). Add dark chocolate chips while mixing on low speed. The dough is very sticky at this time (Picture 4).
5. I wrapped the dough into a brick shape with plastic wrap and put it in the refrigerator overnight. Picture 5 is the dough that has been iced overnight.
6. The next day, preheat the oven to 350°F (177°C) and line two large baking sheets with baking paper, and set them aside. Scoop out small poke dough with a spoon and roll it into a ball. Place 20 balls on each pan (Picture 6, 7) and bake for 13 minutes per pan. For a nicer look, put some chocolate chips on top of the hot cookies.
Freshly baked Red Velvet chocolate chip cookies were opened and the dark chocolate melted inside (Picture 8, 9, 10) After the cookies cool down, pack them and take them to my son's birthday party to share with his friends the next day.
