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.

These cookies are great because they have a beautiful, deep red color. Perfectly soft and chewy and contains tons of white chocolate chips (or whatever kind of chocolate chips you prefer). Plus the biggest plus, they are semi-homemade.

These cookies are unavoidably ruby red in color, 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.

Ingredients Needed To Make Red Velvet Cookies

  • Red Velvet Cake Mix
  • 6 tbsp Butter, Melted
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 tsp Lemon Zest
  • 1 cup White Chocolate Chips
  • 1/2 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tsp Cornstarch

How To Make Your Cookies

First, you will want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees.

Then, in a large bowl, place Red Velvet Cake Mix, Lemon Zest, melted butter, and eggs in a bowl. Mix well until incorporated. Then add in your favorite brand’s white chocolate chip morsels. Mix well until see that your chocolate is evenly distributed.

Next, in a small mixing bowl, whisk together powdered sugar and cornstarch, and set aside. 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.

To prevent sticking, you will need to roll them in a mixture of powdered sugar and cornstarch. I always like to top the dough balls with a few sprinkles of powdered sugar for a nicer presentation.

Once your cookies have been evenly coated in powdered sugar, place them on a baking sheet at least 2 inches apart.

Now you are ready to bake at 350 degrees for around 10 to 12 minutes. Watch carefully. Just a quick note: Your cookies will 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.

Lovely & Easy Cookies to Bake

The cookies come out so rich and delicious that they are perfect with a cold glass of milk! This is definitely a keeper recipe and one we will make many times in the future!

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 and Devil foods cake mix with semi-sweet morsels. The mixes are endless, and so will the cookies.

Our favorite still stands like these, Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies. This recipe can be easily doubled to make about 40-44 cookies total.

Hope you and your family have fun making these cookies as much as ours does.

How to Store Your Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies

Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or store on the countertop in an airtight container for up to one week. If kept in the refrigerator, your cookies will be very hard.

I am sure that they won’t even make it that long in your home. They are that good. You can also freeze these cookies. They hold up well. They will last up to 3 months in the freezer. Just keep them in a place that will protect them from damage.

** Special Note: If your cake mix states “contains pudding” you will need to adjust your baking time. It will vary based on region. 

I have found in testing this recipe that I have had to add an additional 7 minutes to each batch. That is a lot more time. Just make sure you confirm your cake box details before baking.
