Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

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!

Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Author: Emily
  • Total Time: 22 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x


  • 1 box of strawberry cake mix
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/4 cup chocolate chips for garnish


  1. Adjust oven racks to upper middle and lower middle position. Set oven temp to 350 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the cake mix and baking powder.
  3. In a smaller bowl, or a stand mixer bowl, mix eggs, oil, and vanilla. Slowly incorporate the dry cake mix into the wet ingredients. The dough will be stiff. Mix in 1 cup of chocolate chips.
  4. Place cookie dough balls on prepared baking sheets. Press the remaining 1/2 cup of chocolate chips into the tops of the dough balls.
  5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, rotating your baking sheets from upper to lower and spinning back to front. Pull them out if you see any cookies begin to brown. ( There’s nothing wrong with a touch of brown, they just don’t look as pretty.) Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. They will be very soft. Serve.
