Anyone that knows me knows my absolute favorite treat ever is chocolate dipped strawberries. I have to credit Sallysbakingaddiction.com for this fantastic recipe for Strawberry Chocolate Chip cookies. She has a fabulous blog and I recommend you check it out. I got a little side tracked when I found this recipe and jumped off the diet bandwagon for a bit. But it’s all good, I’ll just be jumping right back on…
Sally has discovered a fabulous technique for using boxed cake mixes to make cookies~ genus idea for sure. These cookies would be perfect for a Valentine’s Day treat, or heck, whenever you want to treat yourself!
These cookies will bake up very very soft and it’s important to let them cool on the baking sheet a bit before removing them to a cooling rack. I think they look much cuter when chocolate chips are actually pressed into the tops of each dough ball before baking, and I’ve specified that in the recipe. I usually put more chocolate chips in my chocolate chip cookie recipes than is called for, because I am a professed chocoholic. But I actually found that less is more when using the strawberry cake batter. I found my taste buds overwhelmed with chocolatiness and I wanted to taste more of the strawberry flavor, so I re-wrote the recipe a bit to reflect my tastes. You will love how simple and quickly these cookies will go from a picture to your plate. Gotta try em!
