RECIPE BACKSTORY
This is a classic Red Velvet cookie recipe topped with white chocolate chips. The decadent cookie is soft, chewy and forms a beautiful crackle layer on the surface. A perfect Red Velvet cookie balances the tastes of chocolate and vanilla equally. This recipe harnesses both these flavors, with the white chocolate adding a sophisticated touch. With the bold red coloring, and the contrast to the creamy white chocolate chips, this is an amazing recipe to make around the holidays. Though, no grand occasion is needed to divulge in these, simply bake them after ordinary victories, such as donating blood or volunteering with the Red Cross near you!
