I am fully aware that I promised you more Red Velvet recipes and so today I bring you these Red Velvet White Chocolate Cookies.  Last year after I made the Strawberry and White Chocolate Cookies it occurred to me that since this particular recipe calls for cream cheese, red velvet would be the perfect match.

I used a Red Velvet cake mix just like I did for the Red Velvet Crinkle Cookies and these cookies quickly became a new favorite at our house.  The cookies are so tender, chewy, and moist – all must-haves for my family.

I am all about saving time and using cake mixes for cookies is one time-saver that I LOVE to use.  I’m able to whip up a batch of cookies in a jiffy without sacrificing flavor and texture.  Time has been at a premium as of late and so all short-cuts are being taken advantage of.  Can anyone else relate?  I swear I’m getting shorted on that whole 24 hours a day thing. I added Valentine’s Day M&Ms to the mix and pressed some onto the top of the cookie dough balls before baking.  I just love all that red, white, and pink together!

Like everything red velvet, that deep, rich red is simply mesmerizing and just so much fun for Valentine’s Day!
