Red Velvet White Chip Cookies from Crumbl are giant, gooey cookie with a rich red velvet flavor packed with white chocolate chips. This is a copycat version of Crumbl’s Cookie.
What are Crumbl Cookies?
Crumbl Cookies is a cookie and ice cream shop made popular in a little college town in Logan, Utah. I mean, what college student wouldn’t like a giant, fresh out of the oven cookie delivered to their dorm room late at night? We are talking until midnight on the weekends!
They always offer their classic warm Chocolate Chip Cookie and Chilled Sugar Cookie with their iconic Sweet Almond Icing. In addition to those two staples, they have a rotating menu featuring 4 different cookies every week. If you like one of their specialty cookies you’d better make it in to a Crumbl fast, because once it is gone, you won’t see it featured again for a few months. Well, you better make it in store or find a copycat recipe so you can have some on hand at all times. 😉

Ingredients Needed for Red Velvet Cookies
- butter- I always use salted butter that I’ve softened in the microwave. If you only have unsalted butter, you’ll want to add a pinch or two extra salt to this recipe to balance everything out.
- granulated & brown sugar- We use both granulated and brown sugar in this recipe, more brown sugar than granulated which helps give it a chewy texture.
- eggs- just a couple of eggs (2) for this one!
- vanilla extract- My favorite brand is Watkins, found at Walmart. Pure extract or imitation will work well- just use your favorite!
- flour- All purpose flour is what you’ll need- nothing too fancy around here!
- cocoa powder- To get the color and flavor to match Crumbl’s Red Velvet White Chip Cookie, you’ll want to use Dutch Processed Dark Cocoa. If you only have regular unsweetened cocoa around that is fine- the cookies will still taste great.
- baking soda
- red food coloring- This is what will give the cookies the classic red color. I suggest using gel food coloring because it is much more potent than the stuff you’ll buy in the baking isle of the grocery store. Plus, you won’t be adding a bunch of liquid to the recipe like you would if you use liquid food dye which can cause the cookies to come out flat. I purchase my gel food coloring at Hobby Lobby or on Amazon.
- white chocolate chips- you can use any brand you like, although I’m 90% sure that Crumbl uses the Guittard brand of white chocolate chips if you want a true copycat.
Can you freeze Crumbl Cookies?
Most of the time, they freeze wonderfully! This Red Velvet White Chip cookies are no exception. Just freeze in a zip top bag or another air tight container and pull them out and let them sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before serving.
What is the best way to store Crumbl Cookies?
The best way to store either your homemade or store-bought crumbl cookies is in an air tight container. If the cookie is served chilled, store it in the fridge, if it is served warm you can store it at room temperature but it will keep well in the fridge also. I prefer my cookies chilled so mine tend to go in the fridge.
Red Velvet White Chip Crumbl Cookies
- Preheat oven to 350°.
- Cream together the butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar.
- Add the egg and vanilla. Mix until light in color and creamy.
- Add in the dry ingredients (flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt), mix into the dough. Mix until completely combined. The dough will be soft.
- Mix in the red food coloring, then fold in the white chocolate chips.
- Use a 1/2 cup measuring cup to portion out the dough. Roll the dough and flatten them slightly. Arrange 6 cookies per cookie sheet. This will make 12 cookies.
- Bake at 350° for 15-17 minutes- the cookies should spread slightly, crackle a little bit and the centers should no look shiny and wet anymore.
- Allow the cookies to cool for at least 10 minutes on the pan before serving. Serve warm.
