After the kids come in from building snow forts and making snow angels, I like to have big cup of hot chocolate with extra marshmallows. But if you really want to indulge after playing in the snow, try these melt-in-your-mouth cookies.
Red velvet, white chocolate cookies
1 1/2 cups red velvet cake mix
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
6 Tablespoons butter, softened
6 Tablespoons shorting
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup white chocolate chips
1/2 cup sprinkles
1-2 teaspoon red gel food color
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Stir cake mix, flour and baking soda together and set aside.
Whip butter and shorting together with a mixer. Add sugars, egg, vanilla and food coloring. Beat until creamy.
Add flour mixture, combine but don't over mix.
Fold in chocolate and sprinkles.
Place rounded tablespoons of batter on a greased and lined cookie sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes. Watch these cookies during the last minute or two. You don't want these to over cook, they will set as they cool.
