Red Velvet Cookies

Red (and Christmassy) velvet nutella cookies!

What says “Christmas” better than red and baking? As the festive season draws closer and as you brush up on your carols and pull out your woollens, BnP brings to you delicious Red Velvet Nutella Cookies to brighten up dull winter mornings. Let the festivities roll…

What will I need?

1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown Sugar
1/2 unsalted and melted butter
Vanilla extract, 2 tsp.
Eggs – 2, at room temperature
Yogurt – 1 tblsp
1 3/4 tblsp Red food colouring
1 1/2 tblsp Red food colouring
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips
18 tsp Nutella chocolate spread

How is it done?

Start by mixing together the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and a pinch of salt in a big bowl. Set aside.

Beat the butter with both the sugars together until light and fluffy. Mix it all in the bowl and beat well. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Wrap the dough in plastic and chill in the fridge for an hour.

At the same time, drop teaspoon dollops of Nutella onto parchment paper and freeze.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line two baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

Take out 1 tablespoon of dough and place a frozen teaspoon of Nutella onto the dough. Add another half tablespoon of dough over the Nutella and cover the dollop. Roll the dough between your hands to form a ball. Repeat the the remaining dough and Nutella.

Bake the cookies for 9 – 10 minutes

The cookies will still be puffy.
