Fresh Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies


  • 1 cup very ripe strawberries, sliced
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 box (18.25 oz) vanilla cake mix
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Red food coloring
  • 1 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • Extra chocolate chips, for topping (optional)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. Set aside.

Put strawberries in a bowl and top with sugar. Stir to combine. Allow to sit for 30 minutes. Use a fork to mash the strawberries into large chunks (if your strawberries aren't that ripe, you might need to add them to a blender or food processor and blend slightly, leaving chunks). Set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix and baking powder. Add the reserved strawberries, eggs, oil and vanilla and stir to combine. Add a few drops of red food coloring to make a light pink color, if desired, and stir to combine. Fold in the chocolate chips.

Drop 2 tbsp. of dough shaped into a ball on the prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough, leaving about 2 inches in between cookies.

Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to one week.
