Valentine's Day Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies.

Follow me on bloglovin' and hello cotton to find out when I post new recipes!
Valentine's day is tomorrow and I made these for my music class (a weekly tradition). They are so delicious and best eaten when warm and soft. As well as being a nice treat for your one true love, these are great to eat all year round.


200g plain flour
2.5 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp cornstarch
1 tsp baking powder
pinch of salt
110g butter
granulated sugar
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 tsp red food colouring
100g chocolate 


1. Preheat oven to 180°C.
2. Mix together the flour, cocoa powder, cornstarch, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
3. In a separate bowl, whip together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
4. Add the egg and whisk in.
5. Mix in the vanilla, red food colouring and your choice of chocolate (I used chunks of dark chocolate).
6. Add the dry ingredients gradually and combine until smooth and dough-like.
7. Scoop tablespoon amounts onto a greased baking sheet, make sure they are well spread out as the will expand in the oven. You may wish to mould them into shapes.
8. Bake for 20 minutes.
9. Leave to cool for 5 minutes and transfer to a cooling rack. 

Happy Valentine's Day and enjoy!
