WHAT YOU WILL NEED TO MAKE THESE VALENTINE’S DAY CAKE MIX COOKIES
- Strawberry Cake Mix: you can also use vanilla cake mix and dye the batter with red food coloring if you prefer vanilla flavor over strawberry.
- Vegetable oil or canola oil
- Sprinkles: Valentine’s Day themed sprinkles are always my go-to for this recipe but you can use any sprinkles you prefer!
CAKE MIX COOKIES
To bake up your favorite cake mix flavor you can! If you love chocolate cake, make Chocolate Cake Mix Cookie, or if you love French vanilla cake, you can make French Vanilla Cookies. Simply add 2 eggs and 1/2 cup of vegetable oil or canola oil. Mix all of the ingredients together and bake at 350 degrees for 9-12 minutes. That is the base recipe for Cake Mix Cookies and the rest is up to you to customize!
There is just something about cake mix cookies that everyone loves! Cake Mix Cookies are just what they sound like. They have a consistency of a soft cookie and a cake-like flavor so you get the best of both worlds. You don’t have to make your own cake mix and there are so many different flavors you can try!
You can add as many or less sprinkles that you want to these cookies. The strawberry cake mix flavor is my favorite with this particular Valentine’s Day cookie recipe because it’s pink and has a hint of strawberry flavor!
ADD CHOCOLATE TO THESE VALENTINE’S DAY CAKE MIX COOKIES
If you have more time and want to add more to these cookies, dip half of the cookie in melted white or milk chocolate and add sprinkles. If you dip these cookies in milk chocolate, the cookies may remind you of a chocolate covered strawberry! 🙂
