Pink Chocolate Chip Cookies


There is nothing like a super chocolate-y chocolate chip cookie! So simple & so delicious. Next time try adding some red gel food coloring. PINK cookies are definitely more fun. & wouldn’t they be super cute for your next event?

Ingredients

1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, slightly softened
1 (17.5 oz.) pouch Betty Crocker sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup flour
2 egg WHITES (do not use whole egg or the yolk will turn cookies orange)
red food coloring (about 12-14 drops, or until desired pink color is achieved)
1 cup baking chips (dark chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate, white chocolate or candy pieces like M&Ms)

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F).
2. Cream butter and cookie mix. Add powdered sugar and flour and mix until well blended and crumbs are fine. Add egg whites and mix until well blended and mixture sticks together. Add red food coloring, several drops at a time, mixing after each addition until desired pink color is achieved and is uniform throughout the dough. Stir in chocolate pieces.
3. With a 1-1/4″ cookie scoop (or by rounded spoonful), drop cookies onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10 minutes, or until set but not brown. Allow to cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes before removing cookies to cooling rack to cool completely.

  8. I’ve chose to make these for my granddaughters BD party-Minnie Mouse theme. The kids are having cake pops and wanted something for the adults or, the kids (as an extra). It’s funny because I have two pkgs. of the cookie mix and had thought of using them but, then we thought we’d never really seen anyone do this and add chips to sugar cookies-we wondered if they’d taste ok-the texture and all. I had saved this to pintrest(hadn’t read it) and told my daughter, let me go look, I think I can find something. So, thank you, we will be making them.
