These soft-baked red velvet white chocolate chip cookies are perfect for your next holiday cookie exchange. They’re beautiful, festive and a delight to eat.
Valentine’s Day or the Christmas season is known for beautifully red baked goods. Let’s face the facts, you do not need to have a special occasion to make Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies. I know that I do not need a reason to bake. That is a FACT! I love to bake cookies any day of any month, whether it be summer or winter. Cookies just brighten my day.
Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies
These cookies are unavoidably ruby red in colour, they’re soft and sweet. The big bonus here is that they are semi-homemade. Time to hit up that pantry and simply pull out a few ingredients that you may already have on hand.
You will need one Red Velvet boxed cake mix and just a few more extra ingredients. Grab your mixing bowl and let’s get started. No need to pull out your big mixer. I find it easier to mix in a bowl with a spatula.
I love to roll the dough into big inch-sized balls, to make giant soft cookies, but you could definitely use smaller scoops of dough to make more cookies. You will need to roll them in a mixture of powdered sugar and cornstarch to prevent sticking. I always like to top the dough balls with a few sprinkles of powdered sugar for a nicer presentation.
Because they come out of the oven still pretty soft, it’s important to let them cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes to help them retain their shape as they cool. I know if you are like me, you want to taste test a few right out of the oven, but believe me when I say give them a few minutes.

Just a quick side note, I have used this same recipe using other box cakes to make different cookies. So far we love strawberry with white chocolate chips & devil foods cake mix with semi-sweet morsels. The mixes are endless and so will be the cookies. Our favorite still stands as these, Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies.
