There is no need to decrease the amount of cream with the use of the gel food coloring.
- ½ cup chocolate chips, either white or dark
Preheat oven to 375°.
Cream butter and sugars together until fluffy. Add egg, vanilla and heavy cream and combine until smooth. Beat in the red food coloring. Add the cocoa, flour, baking soda and salt until just combined. Add the chocolate chips.
