Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
I also used dairy free dark chocolate chips. However, you could make red velvet white chocolate chip cookies vegan by using vegan white chocolate chips. Is there such a thing? Why yes, there is.
For example, there are these No Whey Milkless White Chocolate Bars that can be chopped and used in these cookies.
There’s also these King David White Chocolate Chips that are dairy free as well.
So, simply use the instructions below to make this red velvet white chocolate chip cookies cake mix recipe. Then, simply substitute either the chopped up vegan white chocolate bar or vegan white chocolate chips. It’s perfect!
Vegan white chocolate chip red velvet cookies are amazing!
How to Make Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies
It’s easy to make these mouthwatering Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies from cake mix!
Begin by placing the vegan butter in a small, microwave-safe bowl. Microwave for 30 seconds, until mostly melted. Pour the red velvet cake mix in a mixing bowl. Add the melty butter. Stir to combine. It will be a very course mixture at this point.
Note: I used Duncan Hines Red Velvet Cake mix because it’s dairy free. And as you can see, these Duncan Hines Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies turned out fabulous!
In the same bowl you melted the butter, add the ground flax seeds, cornstarch, and water. Stir to combine. Pour this into the bowl with the red velvet cookie dough batter and stir to combine.
Next, stir in the chocolate chips. If you’re using vegan white chocolate chips, use those here. Then, cover the dough and refrigerate about 30 minutes.
When you’re ready to begin baking, preheat your oven to 350F. Use a cookie dough scoop to create 36 cookie dough balls. I love using a cookie dough scoop to make sure the cookies are all a consistent size.
Then, roll the cookie dough balls in the powdered sugar and place on an ungreased cookie sheet, about 1½ inches apart as there will be some spreading.
Bake the cookies for 9-10 minutes, depending on your preference for softness. I like these cookies to be soft in the middle so I pull them out at 9 minutes on the dot.
Once you remove the baking pan from the oven, allow the freshly baked cookies to sit on the pan for a minute or two before transferring to a rack to cool.
What I Love About These Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies
First and foremost, I love how easy these cookies are to make. I mean, we’re talking around 5 ingredients. Not too shabby! And delicious? OMG. Imagine dense, gooey, chocolatey, red devil deliciousness in every bite.
That about sums it up.
Plus, I love that when I shared them with my non vegan friends, they oohed and ahh’d in delight. Music to my ears.
Storing This Recipe
Wondering how to store these cookies? They will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 – 5 days, however, they taste best during the first three days. Alternatively, you can store them in an airtight container in the fridge.
Finally, these cookies can be frozen. Allow them to cool after baking, then transfer to a freezer bag and freeze for up to 3 months. You can also freeze the cookie dough balls. Then, when you’re ready to bake, allow the cookie dough balls to thaw out about 10 – 15 minutes, then roll in powdered sugar and bake.
Now, for those of you who think making cookies with a cake mix is a little below your standards, you can always make my Red Velvet Energy Bites. They are pretty amazing!
