We love making cookies out of a cake mix. When we make cookies starting with a cake mix it only requires a few extra ingredients. These cookies are loaded with strawberry flavor thanks to the strawberry cake mix.

How to Store:

These strawberry chocolate chips cookies are perfectly stored at room temperature. Place the cookies in an air tight container and they will last about a week.

How to Freeze:

Make sure that the cookies cool completely before freezing.

  • Place the cooked cookies on a baking sheet.
  • Then place it in the freezer for at least 1 hour.
  • After this time, move them to a freezer bag for up to 2-3 months.

Freezing the cookie individually for an hour, allows you to take out small serving without having to defrost a large portion.

Defrost them at room temperature and then they are ready to enjoy. I love just pulling a few out at dinner time and they’re usually defrosted out in time for dessert.

  • Simple Ingredients – You only need a few ingredients and you have an easy cookie dessert.
  • Budget Friendly – I try to always have cake mixes available because they can be used for many different recipes.
  • Family Favorite – This cookie is fun and festive and always a family favorite.
  • Last Minute Dessert Idea – If your kids are needing a treat for a holiday party this is the cookie to make. Cake Mix Cookies saves me every time I need a quick dessert idea.
