Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies

cake mix cookies

I’m still making Valentine’s Day treats, and I have a few more planned in the next two days. My husband took my son to get me something for Valentine’s Day, and he got me a box of brownie mix, so I guess he wants brownies too for Valentine’s Day! I’m brainstorming ideas now on how to make them more festive.

Today I made these cookies. There’s just something I love about pretty pink cookies. They’re so cute and girly. These little cookies are made with strawberry cake mix and pretty pink, red and white M&M candies. They are really easy and take almost no time to make. I made these cookies today for the teachers at my sons’ school. I hope the ladies like them!

      If you click the printer icon, it should bring up a black and white page with just the recipe then click file in your browser and then select print.

    Can you make this recipe without oil? Does it affect the fluffiness of the cookie?

    Made these yesterday minus the strawberry jam b/c I didn’t have any. I used the liquid Strawberry Quick instead & everyone loved them. Sooo good. Think they would be better with the jam tho. Thanks for sharing the recipe 🙂

    This question may seem a bit weird, but do we need the M&Ms?

    • Angie McGowan — April 28, 2014 @ 9:14 am

      I guess not.

    What size is your cake mix? I’ve noticed that a lot of recipes specify 18.25 oz boxes, but the one I bought today is 15.25 oz. If you were using the 18.25 oz. box, should I add flour, or reduce the liquids to make the cookies?

    • Angie McGowan — October 15, 2014 @ 11:17 am

      it’s the same size that Betty Crocker makes, not sure of the oz.
