Note to self: baking cookies and watching the Victoria Secret fashion show is not the best combination in the world…
I’m not quite sure what has gotten into me lately but I have been on a cooking/baking kick. I guess with the Holidays it just brings out the best in us right??
My friend Monica is hosting a Cookie Exchange Party tonight and I knew just the cookie to make. I found this recipe last year and brought them to a party. Everyone loved them and more importantly, I didn’t have to buy a thousand ingredients and slave over the oven.
This recipe is SO easy. All you need is a box of red velvet cake mix, 2 eggs, vegetable oil, vanilla and white chocolate chips.
Jessica used regular chocolate chips in her recipe, but I figure white would look a little more festive. I also added Hershey’s White Peppermints kisses on each one.
1 box Red Velvet cake mix
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup vegetable oil
3/4 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350.
In an electric mixing bowl, combine cake mix, oil, eggs, and vanilla. Mix until a dough forms. Fold in chocolate chips. Roll into balls and bake at 350 for 8 minutes.
Side Note: The dough can be very sticky! I would recommend either putting it in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes or spraying cooking spray on your hands first before you roll them. The dough is very red!!!
I let the cookies cook for about a minute extra
Makes about 24 cookies.
Go ahead and unwrap the Hershey Kisses while the cookies are in the oven and then after they have cooled for a few minutes, insert one kiss in the center of each cookie
