Did I mention you just need one mixing bowl to make these cookies? They are that easy and you don’t even need any fancy mixers. A wooden spoon or spatula will do.

The cookie dough will be the consistency of a thick-like cake batter.

There is so much to love when baking with Cake Mix because 1) it’s delicious and 2) its super convenient and requires minimal prep- I’m talking less than 5 minutes! Valentine’s Day is the perfect day to make these cookies because they are gorgeous and everyone will love them!

Add these cookies to goodie bags and hand them out to friends, family or neighbors for a sweet and delicious treat.

  • 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. 
  • Eggs
  • 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!


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!

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! 🙂

    Okay, I have to confess, this is the best Valentine’s Day cookies I have seen so far! The color is just mesmerizing and I love that you made it with cake mix! Yippee

    Okay. I literally have the second batch baking right now; the first batch came out…. better than I expected. The cookies are so soft (as they should be), and so tasty! I almost decided this was a one-time deal, because the mixture came out so thick, it nearly bogged down my hand-mixer. I really was prepared to forget about it after I made this. Well, I’m printing and keeping the recipe. The cookies are SO good!! I’m thrilled with these! Husband is thrilled with these! And he *rarely* likes anything strawberry. Seriously: I’m keeping this in my Valentine’s “sweetheart” rotation. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

      Thank you so much for your review, Juanita! I am so glad both you and your husband loved these Cake Mix cookies 🙂 You are so welcome! The strawberry flavor is soooo good! I have several other cake mix cookie recipes on my blog, be sure to check them out too 🙂

      Hi Vanessa! These cookies will last about a week when stored in an airtight container, plate covered tightly with plastic wrap, or a ziplock bag. Please store in a cool area (the kitchen counter is perfect). Enjoy!

    They are very cute cookies! But I didn’t get anywhere near 24 cookies with each being two tablespoons. I only got 14 cookies. It was a regular box cake mix so I am not sure if my scoop was a lot more than two tbs but they look similar to the picture in size.

    These are great! We just moved and didn’t have flour, sugar etc. but I had a white cake mix. Added rainbow sprinkles and everyone was happy.
    I was babysitting and needed a project for a 5 year old. This took just enough time to keep her engaged and she had some cookies to take home.

  5. I made these for Valentine’s and they were a hit. It was nice, soft, and tasty. Do you know if they freeze well after baking? Thanks in advance.
