Ingredients

  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 - 8 drops of red and orange food coloring each
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine all of your dry ingredients (flour, baking soda & salt). Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, beat together the butter and sugars until soft and fluffy. This can be done by hand or using an electric mixer. Add vanilla and eggs. Mix until fully combined.
  • Once your butter mixture is thoroughly combined, mix in your flour mixture. Combine until both are well mixed.
  • Add food coloring to begin transforming your cookies into Pretty in Pink. Begin by adding 6-8 drops each of red and orange food coloring. Adjust as needed to reach your desired shade of pink.
  • Add in your chocolate chips and mix throughout.
  • Using your hands, pinch off about 2 tablespoons of dough. Form into a ball, rolling the dough with both hands. Once the ball is formed, place it on a 9x13” pan and press down gently. Repeat until your pan is full with 12 cookies.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 13-15 minutes.
  • Once cooking time is complete, remove from the oven and place cookies on a cooling rack.
  • Repeat steps 6 & 7 for the remainder of your dough.
  • Once cooled, serve immediately.

Notes

Instead of dark chocolate chips, you can use milk chocolate chips for a different pallet taste.
If you have pink food coloring, you can certainly use that instead of combining red & orange colors.
These chocolate chip cookies go wonderfully with a glass of milk or bowl of ice cream!
Change up the type of chocolate chips that you use in these cookies. You can change up the chocolate chip cookies as you'd like. Give dark chocolate chip cookies a try in these cookies. I think you'll love the flavor.
Fold in the chocolate chips gently to prevent them from breaking up chocolate chips.
Once you add the flour to your cookie dough, be careful to not overmix the dough.
For easy clean-up, you can use parchment paper or a silicone baking mat on your cookie sheets.
Cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to one week, or frozen for up to three months.
