Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies

Red Velvet has got to be one of my favorite cakes.
Chocolate chip cookies have got to be one of my favorite cookies.
Combine the two? Yes please!

After I signed up on Pinterest I quickly found everyone seems to have an obsession for Red Velvet. I'm in heaven. I never thought of it past cake or cupcakes.
So for my first Red Velvet non cake, I chose to recreate Baking Serendipity's recipe.
I added an extra egg from the original recipe as it was just a bit too dry for my liking, and I added some more chocolate chips.
After baking it the ideas are coming to me on all the variations I want to create on Velvet recipes (I really want to make a white chocolate velvet).
