Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies with White Chocolate Chips

I first saw the concept of cake mix cookies on Sally’s Baking Addiction, an amazing blog for everything sweet and baked. The recipes and photos are all drool-worthy so check it out if you get the chance!

I personally love chewy cookies way more than crunchy cookies, so using cake batter for the dough instead of regular flour just blew my mind. I’m also a fiend for white chocolate chips, so it took quite a bit of will power not to devour half the batch right away.

To all my fellow Canadian readers, I’m not 100% sure if strawberry-flavoured cake batter is available here. I got this when I took a trip to the States, but if you can’t find this mix, use vanilla cake mix, add strawberry flavouring and use pink/light red food dye for the colour if desired.Close-up Strawberry Cookies Stawberry Cake Mix Cookies with White Chocolate Chips


Makes roughly 15 cookies

  • 1 517g box strawberry cake mix
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/4 cup white chocolate chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix and baking powder. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil, and vanilla by hand. Add the egg mixture to the cake mixture and stir until smooth and consistent to form a dough. Gently fold in the chocolate chips.

Form dough into roughly 1-1/2 inch balls and place onto a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicon baking mat. You can add extra chocolate chips on top of the cookie dough balls if you have a strong sweet tooth, or just for looks. Make sure the balls of dough are slightly taller than they are wide.

Bake for 9-10 minutes until cookies have risen slightly but not browned. Let cool for 5 minutes; the chocolate chips will be very hot and the cookies will still be soft. Once cooled, you can store them in an airtight container for about a week._DSC1161Strawberry Cookies Text

    gosh, these cookies look so beautiful and adorable, I love their lovely pink color ^^ I’m not a fan of chewy cookies but this recipes sounds great so maybe I will give it a try !

    1. I’m not sure if they got baked for much longer if they would be as good (if you wanted them a little crunchier) but you could always give them a try and see!

        I just finished making them for the second time! First was with Devil’s Food cake mix and this time it’s with a white cake mix, but i added semi-sweet chocolate chips. The first was absolutely amazing and I know the second will be just as awesome! These are so easy to make, I’m gonna be fat soon. 😛

      2. They become so addictive, I’m glad you’re experimenting lots with them 🙂 the chocolate ones with sea salt on top were so good!
