These strawberry cake mix cookies require only five ingredients and are an easy treat for Valentine's Day. You could even dip half the cookie in chocolate!
I'm going to start off by saying these strawberry chocolate chip cake mix cookies aren't nearly as decadent as my red velvet rice krispie treats or double peanut butter blossom cookies, but if you need a last-minute Valentine's Day dessert for a family get-together or preschool party, they're perfect.
These strawberry cake mix cookies require only five ingredients—four if you leave out the chocolate chips. You could also make them without chocolate chips and dip half of them in melted semisweet chocolate. Another option? Using white chocolate chips instead of semisweet or milk chocolate. Mmm...
Some cake mix cookie recipes call for a ½ cup oil instead of the ½ cup butter, but I'm all about the butter when it comes to baking. Or toast. Or muffins. Or cornbread...
These strawberry chocolate chip cake mix cookies use a 15.25-oz. box of Pillsbury Strawberry Cake Mix. Some cake mixes are 18.25 ounces. If that's what you have on hand, try adding an extra egg to the mix. Cake mix cookies are pretty forgiving.

If you're looking for another easy Valentine's Day treat, try these red velvet rice krispie treats. They're my absolute favorite way to eat Rice Krispies cereal.
These double peanut butter blossom cookies are almost as easy as the krispie treats and just as yummy. Perhaps you should make them too...
