Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies

I had to share one of our Valentines treats that we made last week! These cookies are extremely easy to make, and are moist and flavorful. Not to mention that homemade cream cheese frosting is probably the best stuff ever :)

Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 box red velvet cake mix
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips
Half a batch of cream cheese frosting *see below

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In an electric mixing bowl, combine cake mix, oil, eggs, and vanilla. Mix until a dough forms. Fold in chocolate chips.

Roll into 24 balls and bake for 8 minutes.

Spread the bottom half of a cookie with cream cheese frosting. Top with another cookie. You’ll have a total of 12 cookie sandwiches.

Cream Cheese Frosting
1 8-ounce package cream cheese
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-3 cups powdered sugar

In a large bowl, mix the cream cheese and butter until smooth, about 2 minutes. Mix in vanilla. Add powdered sugar gradually, until frosting reaches spreading consistency and desired sweetness. If not using immediately, refrigerate.
