  • Ready In

  1. Whisk flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.
  2. Beat butter with an electric mixer until fluffy, about 2 minutes; beat in brown sugar and white sugar until smooth, about 1 minute. Beat egg, milk, and vanilla extract into butter mixture; beat in food coloring until uniformly colored.
  3. Stir flour mixture into butter mixture gradually with electric mixer on low speed until combined; stir in 1 cup chocolate chips. Cover bowl with plastic wrap; place in the refrigerator for 1 hour or up to overnight.
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  5. Roll dough into 2-inch balls; place on prepared baking sheets and flatten slightly.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until edges are lightly browned, about 10 minutes. Sprinkle cookies with a few additional chocolate chips; allow to cool completely.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Chilling the dough is highly recommended; it really does make a difference in the texture of this cookie. You can substitute white chocolate for the dark chocolate chips, for a nice contrast in color. If chilled overnight, remove dough from refrigerator about 30 minutes before working with it.

These cookies had a pretty good taste but it needed less sugar and a lot less food coloring. After I ate one I felt a little sick from the amount of food coloring

Great cookies! I only used 1 tablespoon of red food coloring instead of 2. I also used white chocolate chips!

These cookies are very good! I put cream cheese on top of my cookies and they are very heavenly.

Half the red food coloring is plenty sufficient.

Quality overall is great; recipe is simple. However they aren't red at all. I used all-natural food coloring and maybe that's the difference. Will have to try again.

I made these cookies for the first time. My nephew asked specifically for red velvet cookies. I failed to look at the amount of food coloring and thought I had enough and did not. Other than t...

I made it several times! My family and friends eat them before I can get to them. Very nice!

The cookie was okay. I found it to be rather dry and flour-y. I wouldn't recommend this to very many people
