Soft and chewy Red Velvet Cookies with White Chocolate Chips through out. Leave these for Santa on Christmas Eve and he may just leave you an extra present! 

Delicious and soft red velvet cookies filled with white chocolate chips.   Some of my favorite blogging friends and I are throwing a Surprise Virtual Baby Shower for our friend Mandy, who blogs over at Mandy’s Recipe Box. Mandy is due in just a few weeks, so we all wanted to celebrate and share some delicious food in her honor!

I adore Mandy and am so happy I’ve got to know her through the yummy food blogging world. We first ‘met’ 2 years ago, when I came across one of her recipes over at Tasty Kitchen’s website. I clicked on the link to her blog and instantly fell in-love with it! She had so many recipes I wanted to make.

We have a lot in common. We both have 3 children. 2 girls and 1 boy (excluding her bun in the oven) and both named our youngest daughters Emma. We also share the same sense of humor, love of food, and religious beliefs. I know if Mandy and I lived closer to each other we’d be real BFF’s  🙂

So to you, Miss Mandy, I want to say Congratulations and wish you the best of luck when your little one arrives. I wish we lived closer so I could help you out, bring you dinners, and babysit when you need a break… or a nap! ♥

Now, let’s party! I brought the cookies….

  1. {screaming!} Holly!! I remember you mentioning that you wanted to throw me a virtual baby shower back when I announced I was expecting, but had totally forgotten about it. I am just sitting here checking my favorite blogs and see my name. I am in tears over here! Thanks so much!! {hugs} Now you all just need to mail these treats to me, mmmk?

  2. How much fun if this was in person, huh? Thank you so much for hosting Holly and thank you for asking me to be a part! I just could not be happier for Mandy and her expanding family. Congratulations Mandy and well done Holl!! Love you gals!

  3. Okay, mine didn’t look anything like the picture. Despite extra red food colouring, they turned out brown. I used Green & black’s cocoa, but wondering if it was the quality of the food colouring that wrong. Also, the white chips browned. They still taste amazing though!

    1. I would imagine it was your food coloring. I use McCormick liquid red food coloring whenever I make these and they always turn out a beautiful red. Sorry yours didn’t turn out. Try the McCormick next time! 🙂

  4. Just discovered your blog today and immediately bookmarked it.Awesome stuff! I’m a newbie in baking and was wondering if the cookies flatten out on their own since you said to roll the dough in a ball shape and to be careful not flatten them out when putting in the choc chips.
    Merry Christmas.x

  5. I am making these now and they are absolutely delicious! ! I have had no problems with the color at all, I also used McCormick food coloring. I didn’t press any chips in b4 I put the cookies in the oven, I just hand stirred all my white chips before baking. These are definitely going to be addedon to my “tradition” Christmas cookie list!!

  6. I made these last year for Canada day and they were a big hit! Making them again this year and just curious if I could make the dough tonight, refrigerate it, and bake the cookies tomorrow night?
