  • Cake Mix: 1 Box of strawberry cake mix is the main ingredient. This is gives the flavor of the cookies and is all the dry ingredients.
  • Oil: The oil helps bring this recipe together. You can use melted butter in its place as well.
  • Eggs: Make sure to use fresh eggs so the cookies have a nice rise. Leave them out to room temperature for this cookie recipe.

  • Mix. Stir the cake mix, oil, and eggs together until combined. The dough is sticky, so I like to refrigerate it for 15-20 minutes if I have the time. It makes it easier to work with once it’s chilled.
  • Bake. Scoop the dough onto a lined baking sheet, then bake at 350°F for 9 to 11 minutes until the cookies are set (but not brown).
  • Cool. Let them sit on the pan for a couple of minutes, then move them to a cooling rack.
  • Dip. Then get to dipping once the cookies have cooled completely. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave until smooth, then dip half of each cookie in the chocolate. Lay them onto wax paper and immediately add sprinkles while the chocolate is still wet.

Modifications

These strawberry cake mix cookie recipe have a great base to start with. Add chocolate, modify them, or create your favorite cookie using these methods. Enjoy all these possibilities!

  • The white chocolate is optional – you could leave it off if preferred.
  • I used white melting wafers for dipping, but white chocolate chips work great too. The chips also taste great folded into the dough.
  • You could even use milk or dark chocolate instead of white.
  • To make it sweeter, roll the dough balls into granulated sugar before baking.
  • A classic buttercream would taste great on top of these strawberry cookies as well.

Recipe FAQs

What makes a cookie chewy vs soft?

For a chewy cookie you need more moisture in the cookie dough. The balanace of wet and dry ingredinets is something you have to work with.

What is the secret to a good cookie?

There are several ways to bake a cookie! To start, most if not all ingredients should be at room temperature before starting. Only do one batch at a time, chill the cookie dough, and cooling on the baking sheet is the best way to make a good cookie.
