Pink Chocolate Chip Cookies

Happy Valentines Day!

Today I stepped out and changed up my Husbands weekly chocolate chip cookie recipe and made them pink!  My Husband looked at them and said they are weird-looking.  Ha ha  I think they are pretty and kind of punk rock looking.  I love the color of them!!  They are so bright and festive looking.  Here check them out for yourself.

Pink Chocolate Chip Cookies
Pretty cool, huh! I added Fuschia pink food coloring that I have, but I am pretty sure that adding some red food coloring will work just the same. They turned out fat and kind of light. I think the food coloring changed the consistency a bit. But they still tasted just as yummy!! I cant wait to hear the reactions when my Husband takes them to work.

I added the food coloring after I added the wet ingredients. I slowly added the flour in and added a drop more of food coloring while the flour was mixing. You need to do this to get the color you really want.  Just don’t go crazy on the food coloring, you want to taste the cookie, not the food coloring.
Pink Chocolate Chip Cookies
These cookies would make for a wonderful Valentine’s Day gift or if your feeling festive, just make them for yourself. To keep control of not eating them, after they cooled I froze them. I like to freeze my cookies. I just leave them on the counter and they defrost perfectly.

    1. Perfect for today! Happy Valentine’s Day!! xo

    2. These are too cute!

    3. Thank you so much for this recipe. I’ve been searching the pink cookies with chocolate chips recipe and all I’ve found so far required “strawberry cake mix” box from supermarket… until now.

      Not only that I cannot find “strawberry cake mix” where I live, I hate those over priced ready mix cake boxes. I mean, why would someone buy “cake mix”??? Because it’s quick and easy to use? Unless I can eat that cake once I open the box, it’s not “easy to use” for me. “Just add water, milk, oil, eggs ?!?! Heck! Basically, people are buying a box with just flour, sugar, and a little bit of baking powder and/or baking soda….That’s it! Wake up guys and girls! These simple/basic ingriedients are super inexpensive and easy to find and most people have them in their pantry already. Would you pay $4 for 2 cups of flour, 1 1/2 cup of sugar and 2 tsp of baking powder/soda ? Not me!

      ….. Thanks again for this recipe. 🙂

      people like me who love to eat anything pink!
