Red Velvet cookies with white chocolate

Red velvet cookies with white chocolate, the most romantic we know. And now we have the recipe for them for you as well.

You often see the most beautiful Red Velvet cakes come by around Valentine’s Day or on Mother’s Day/Father’s Day. It is a way of expressing love for your partner, father or mother. Those recipes are sometimes complicated and take a long time to make. We looked for a Red Velvet recipe that is easy to make and certainly just as wonderful to give to your loved one or mother. But of course, these homemade biscuits can also go with any other occasion.

We made the Red Velvet biscuits with white chocolate in them. You don’t need to melt the chocolate first, as you chop the bar into pieces and add them to the batter at the end.

This recipe is also great fun to make with children. It is sure to be a hit, because what kid doesn’t want to make his or her mum or dad happy.

When they are ready, put them in a pretty little tin, tie around it and there you have your present!
