  • Mixing bowl, 2 large sheet pans, hand beater or stand mixer.


  • 1 Box Red Velvet Cake Mix 15.25 oz, Betty Crocker
  • 1.25 Cup White Chocolate Chips Ghirardelli 11 oz - Good for 1 cup plus garnish (and a few extra to eat!)
  • 1/2 Cup Butter Melted
  • 2 Eggs


  • Grease pan (rub small amount of oil/butter or pan spray).
  • Preheat oven 350 degrees.
  • Melt butter. Microwave about 30 seconds or you can melt in saucepan.
  • In large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, melted butter and 2 eggs.
  • Mix with hand beater until dough forms.
  • Add 1 cup (or more if desired) white chocolate chips. Hand in white chocolate chips.
  • Hand mix in white chocolate chips.
  • From here you have 2 options.
  • Option 1 (preferred): Refrigerate dough for about 30 minutes. This allows it to firm up and makes it easier to shape into balls resulting in a more uniform cookie shape.
  • Option 2: Move directly to next step skipping refrigeration. The dough will be a little more sticky and harder to shape. Your cookies will be less uniform. This option is fine if you need to save time.
  • Shape cookies into balls (about size of a golf ball). Top with a few more white chocolate chips, if desired.
  • Place cookies on sheet pan. They will expand. Put 6-9 cookies per pan.
  • Option 1: Bake 12-14 minutes.
  • Option 2: Bake 10-12 minutes.
  • Allow time to cool before removing from cookies sheet.
