I decided to make these amazing cookies for Valentines Day. I decided on them because they were a little different then the conventional red velvet cupcake.

2 sticks salted sweet cream butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2/3 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons red food coloring
1 cup chocolate chips
Makes about 30 cookies
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix butter and sugars together until well combined. Add eggs and vanilla. Then the red food coloring.
( I used an electric mixer just used the wooden spoon in between.)
Next comes the cocoa, flour, and baking soda until well mixed. Then finally the chocolate chips.
Spoon about 2 tablespoons onto a parchment paper covered cookie sheet. Bake for 11 to 12 minutes.
They are really good like this but also can easily be turned into sandwiches with cream cheese icing.
