Ya’ll, I know this recipe probably isn’t exactly “original” since several versions of these Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies have been on Pinterest for awhile now, but I haven’t seen my version of these fabulously airy, soft, and chewy Chocolate Chip Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies yet, so I’m sharing my recipe creation with you. These would make great Valentine’s Day cookies for a school or office party and super cute cookies for a girl’s baby shower, birthday party or a bridal party since they are a gorgeous, bright pink.
Okay, so while we’re talking about how awesome these cake mix cookies are, I’m just gonna give ya a little sneak peak of how beautiful they are once cooked. You’re welcome.
Time to start baking! This is the perfect recipe for beginner bakers or mom’s in a hurry because these Chocolate Chip Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies are fast, easy, and so quick to whip together with only four ingredients! After laying out your ingredients, preheat the oven to 375F.
Add 1/4 cup of plain, nonfat Greek yogurt to your mixing bowl along with both eggs, and the box of strawberry cake mix. This Greek yogurt is healthy, replacement for cooking oil or butter and it makes these Chocolate Chip Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies SO soft and moist!
Stir this mixture until all ingredients are well combined and no lumps remain. The dough for these Chocolate Chip Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies will be extremely thick and sticky but that’s exactly how you want it.
After mixing the dough, stir in one cup of mini semi sweet milk chocolate chips. Fold the chocolate chips in and stir until evenly disbursed.
Once the dough is mixed well, place the cake mix dough in the fridge for one hour to chill. This will make the dough a little more manageable when forming into balls since the dough is so wet and sticky.
After the Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies dough has chilled for one hour, remove from the fridge and get ready to start baking! This dough is still going to be sticky so I suggest putting some olive or coconut oil on your palms before handling the dough. This will keep the dough from sticking to your hands and creating a mess.
Scoop the dough by teaspoons full and form into a ball as best you can before placing on a greased cookie sheet.
Again, this dough will be too sticky and wet to roll into a ball so just shape it as best as you can.
Place these Chocolate Chip Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies in the oven that’s already been preheated to 375F.
Bake these Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies for ten minutes or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
Transfer the Chocolate Chip Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies to a wired cooling rack and allow to cool completely before packaging up.
Once these cookies cool, you can enjoy them! They’re like eating a chocolate covered strawberry – just in a chewy, soft, cookie!
Happy baking, friends! I hope you enjoy baking (and eating) these Chocolate Chip Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies as much as we did!
Chocolate Chip Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies
Soft, chewy, and oh so light and fluffy! These cookies taste like a chocolate dipped strawberry - and only four ingredients!
- 1 box strawberry cake mix I used Pillsbury
- 1/4 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the eggs, Greek yogurt, and cake mix until smooth and no lumps remain.
The cookie dough will be extremely thick and sticky but that's the way we want it.
Once the dough is mixed well, fold in the chocolate chips until evenly disbursed throughout the dough.
Chill the dough in the fridge for 1 hour.
Preheat the oven to 375F and spray a large cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
This dough will be wet and sticky so spray your hands with cooking spray or smooth some olive oil over your hands to prevent the dough from sticking to your fingers.
Scoop the dough by teaspoons full and shape as best you can into a ball and then place onto the cookie sheet. The dough will be too sticky to roll into a ball.
Bake the cookies for 9 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
Transfer immediately to a wire cooling rack and allow to cool completely before packaging up.
