Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies

If you like EASY like me but don’t always want to make from scratch, strawberry cake mix cookies are such a great alternative. Cake mix cookies can be made in all types of flavors. Once you get the hang of how to transform cake batter into cookie batter you can make them all. (originally published 2/16, affiliate links present)

How to Make Strawberry Cookies with Cake Mix

We have a lot of boxed cake mix recipes on our site. There are just so many ways to tweak it into other baked goods way beyond just a dump cake. Pink cookies are always extra fun, or pair two together to make some of our cake mix whoopie pies too.

For this particular cake box cookie recipe you will want to grab a box of strawberry cake mix. One that says moist or has pudding in it is best but any flavor will work. Eggs and oil are needed to make the batter. If you want to add the chocolate chunks then you will need a bag of chips or cut up a chocolate bar.

Valentines Day Cookies

Since these are a specific fruit flavor you’d want to buy this one at the store or online. I have found pineapple every now and then too that works well with these instructions and fun during the summertime with some coconut inside. Chocolate goes with everything though and when making as a Valentine’s Day dessert you can find Dove pcs.

We have used this same mix to make brownies out of cake mix and they were the bomb, a huge hit with the kids.

It is just like making “regular” cookies from scratch really, except way easier. The other needs two different bowls for the dry and wet ingredients. These one bowl cookies literally need 5 minutes to stir everything together so kids love the ease of it.

If you want to add semi sweet chips or white chocolate chips just fold those in after everything else is blended together. Rainbow sprinkles can be a fun element too. In order to transition these into cake mix crinkle cookies you’d need a bowl of powdered sugar on the side too.

Cookies made with cake mix are cheap, especially if you can catch a good sale for like $1 a box. Most times you can even find a bunch of flavors at The Dollar Store, then I really stock up.

3 Ingredient Cookies

During the Fall months, pumpkin cookies with cake mix are the bomb too. Actually I make this cake mix cookies recipe all year long but during Thanksgiving is a must. All of them are just super simple that even my girls can make them perfectly soft and chewy every time. If you want to really amp the flavor you can use food coloring too.

If you wanted a really large one instead of little one like these, try our timing for cast iron cookie.

Pink Cookies

If you are having a baby shower and need a dessert to serve with our party punch recipe these would be perfect too. Served with an ice cream scoop on top in a bowl with some cherry pie filling on top. OH MY heavenly and such simple ingredients you’d need to have on hand.

  • You’ll start out by preheating your oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl mix together your 3 ingredients. If you want to add chips fold in about 3/4 of a cup at the end.
    • if you want to stiffen up the dough more than room temperature you can stick the mixing bowl in the fridge for an hour, then roll dough balls and plop them on
  • Spray baking sheet with non stick spray or use lined baking sheets with parchment paper on top. Add large Tbsp full of dough with space in between them.
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges are cracking some and are firming up while the middle is no longer wet.
  • Remove and leave on cookie sheet on top of a cooling rack until completely cooled. If you want to push on a piece of chocolate on top do so about 5 minutes after removing from the oven.

Now here is another idea if you want a Girl Scout cookie version! Use chocolate cake mix and put an Andes mint on the top of each one. I know…..so good right? Those are on the list to be made next weekend. Or use the other mix and make brownie crinkle cookies too!

Cake mix cookies are soft as long as you don’t over-bake them and follow the cooling directions as stated.
