Red Velvet time!! Valentine’s Day is approaching and I’ve got just the cookie for you. Malt balls, chocolate chunks inside chewy red velvet cake cookies. Doesn’t get much better than that!
These could not be simpler to prepare. Just a few ingredients and you are on your way to these beauties! Enjoy!
Your ingredient line up! I also used a few tablespoons of canola oil, not pictured.
Start with a very softened stick of butter.
Cake mix up next!
1 large egg and a few tablespoons of oil.
Malt Balls. Oh yah! I got the fancy ones with the thick chocolaty outsides from Sprouts. Whoppers will work too.
These malt balls are my weakness! Soo good 🙂
Look at those delicious scoops of dough. Nom Nom Nom!
Lots of chocolate in those babies, just how I like it.
Ahhhh, done baking. The hard part is letting them cool 🙂
We loved these room temperature, but REALLY loved them chilled. Try both.
Those chocolate chunks!! Enjoy friends!
