A monster, a cookie the size of a frying pan, red and chocolate with pieces of white chocolate, perfectly covered with a ball of melted vanilla ice cream and a few spoons!
The next in my line of V-day desserts is a red velvet white chocolate cookie that I found some time ago out of interest. Chocolate cookies are a favorite and the idea of a big fried pancake that you eat with a spoon was a must. This cookie is very easy to make and you mix the standard butter, sugar, egg, flour, soda, and salt and throw it in the oven to bake it, like a cookie or a brownie. What makes these cookies “red velvet” is the addition of a full tablespoon of red dye and some cocoa powder. While making this recipe for the pictures I had one of those accidents in the kitchen where I took the dark cocoa powder instead of the regular cocoa powder and this red velvet cookie came out more than a dark red velvet, which I really like! Melting ice cream is one of those pure delights of life and these white red velvet cookies are simply divine when you take them with you!
