Holiday baking easy Red velvet and chocolate chip Cookies.

Easy holiday baking red vevlet cookies

One of my favorite cakes has got to be red velvet. The chocolate goodness, the vivid red color, and the delectiable cream cheese frosting! There is just something about it I absolutely enjoy and love. When I go to Cheesecake Factory I always get a slice of that magnificent red velvet cheesecake. It is something I have to do. But as far as making the cake myself, that is one of those things that I am not the best at. Even though I am one heck of a baker, I just can not seem to get into the making of the red velvet cake.

That is the cake mix I cheat at, that is the cake mix I actually purchase. I will make my own lemon, white, chocolate, carrot and spice cakes. But, when it comes to that red velvet cake, I have to buy it from a box! There, my secret is out!. The thing is with a box mix there is so much you can do with it. For instance, if you are in a hurry get a box mix and make some delicious cookies! That is what I did and they turned out fine! All you need is a couple of eggs, some butter, and elbow grease. Maybe some holiday tunes while you are at it, it is Christmas after all.

So lets talk about recipe. I love cake box cookies, if you have kids this makes life so easy. You just have them crack the eggs, add the butter, and then stir. There is not a lot of room for the dreaded although fun flour mess. Also this recipe works for ALL BOX cookies. Except for the carrot cake, I would use coconut oil instead of the butter.

RECIPE:

You will need

1box of Duncan Hine red velvet cake mix or use what ever is on sale.

2 eggs

1/3 cup of melted butter

!/2 cup of white chocolate chips

Directions:

preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl mix the cake mix, eggs, and butter. Then once the mixture is put together add the chocolate chips. I used a hand mixer for the intial part then folded the chips in with a spatula. My son has sensory issues so normally we just go at it with a spoon. But, since he was at school(shame on me) I used the hand mixer.

Put a spoonful of mix about 2 inches a part on to a parchment lined baking sheet and bake for about 7 to 8 minutes. Depending on your oven.
