Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

I know..I know...the name is a mouthful! But these are truly delicious! If you love Red Velvet Cake, then you're going to love these! I was on Youtube and I ran across a youtuber's channel: Lynnsrecipes. She featured a video called Red Velvet Cookies in which she got the recipe from another youtuber: BlackLabLover9. Here's the video if you want to see it.

 I was dying to try them out, so I went to my local grocery store and picked up some white chocolate chips and red velvet cake mix. These are really fantastic, and some of them are baking in the oven as I type! Hope you try them out!

Red Velvet White Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 1 Box of Red Velvet Cake Mix (I used Duncan Hines Moist Deluxe)
  • 2 Tbsp. Water
  • 2 Large Eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 1/2 Cup Vegetable Oil
  •  10 oz. White Chocolate Chips (I used Nestle Toll House Premier White Morsels)

In a large mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, water, oil, and eggs.

Fold in the white chocolate chips.


Drop by rounded spoonfuls on an ungreased cookie sheet. (I lined mine with parchment paper for easy cleanup.)

Bake in a preheated 350° oven for 8-10 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean or with few moist crumbs attached to it. (I baked mine for 10 minutes.) Cool on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.

About me...

So, Little Big Sweets. What the heck? Where did that name come from? Well, haha, I'll tell ya. I'm just a young person (in the teenage years!) with a BIG passion about baking. I don't really remember when I knew I loved to bake. I don't even remember how I even got into baking! All I know is that I love it, and I'm going to continue doing it.

I've been baking for over 3 and a half years now, and I'm proud to say that I've made some things that I'd never thought I would make and thought it was impossible because I'm just an amateur! I'm in a family where we don't eat a lot of sweets, and when we do, our palate likes things that are not too sweet. I hate to admit it, but my family isn't very supportive of my baking passion because it's very messy, it's too sweet, therefore, resulting in hardly anyone eating my baked goods. I told them that I had two dream careers: becoming a psychiatrist and opening up my own successful bakery. They told me to focus going to medical school, because opening up a shop, nevertheless a bakery shop, is very risky. And just to clear it up, my family is supportive, but not to the point where they think my hobby and passion should affect my career. That is why I love high school. High school is where all of your friends and peers just LOVE to eat. They love to eat anything that looks delicious. When I bake, I save a little bit for my cousins and a little bit for my family. The rest, are for my friends. They love it so much that I have made a profit selling my goodies to them!  My family does request me to bake sometimes, because now my baking skills have improved big time. When I said they weren't very supportive, that was when I was just starting out with cake mixes, wrong techniques and tools. But now, their support and love for me (and my improved baking skills) has got me continuing.

"Well, what kind of things do you make?" You might say. I've made a whole bunch of things. These are just some of them:
  • Red Velvet Cake
  • Flans
  • Lemon Cookies with a Lemon Sugar Glaze
  • Oreo Truffles
  • Ice Cream
  • Chocolate Candies
  • Cake Pops
  • Orange Chiffon Cake
I even have tips, tricks, advice, and even original recipes that have been tested, edited, and perfected!

So before I ramble on too much, I hope that this is enough to suffice anyone's curiousity about the teenage baker. Have a sweet day, and I'll talk to you guys later!
