Did you remember to change your clocks? I totally didn’t… though I’d let myself sleep in this morning since I didn’t get back from my friend’s birthday party til past midnight. When I woke up, the clock said ‘way later than you were hoping to sleep in til’. Oh, well. Took a shower, came back, and gave the clock a funny look… Yes! Time change! A whole extra hour to waste before my busy day starts! Anywho, that doesn’t really have anything to do with these cookies…
And neither does this… but I got home from my sorority meeting after 8pm and was not ready to call it a night. After going and staying out super late the whole rest of the weekend, I figured I should stay in though. And since I spent all day studying, baking sounded perfect. I came across this recipe awhile back and just hadn’t gotten around to making them yet. (Also, I owe my roomie’s bf cookies for using his bedsheet for a toga party.) He was over the moon about them and decided on the spot that they are his favorite cookies ever. Over all others.
My work here is done.
Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies

1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp red food coloring
1/2 cup milk chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Cream butter and sugars together until fluffy in the bowl of an electric mixer. Add egg and vanilla and combine until smooth. Beat in red food coloring. Stir in cocoa, flour, baking soda and salt until just combined, scraping down the sides when needed. Fold in chocolate chips.
Spoon out dough (1-2 tablespoons each) onto baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on the sheet slightly before removing to a wire cooling rack.
*This could make delicious sandwich cookies with cream cheese frosting in the middle.
