Quick + Easy Strawberry Valentine’s Day Cookies


It’s February and love is in the air! Valentine’s day is right around the corner and nothing says love (to this dessert loving momma, anyway) like a plate full of sweet, delicious Valentine’s Day cookies!

 I love cooking, baking, and experimenting with new recipes but let’s be honest… with two mobile children under the age of three, I’ve got my hands full. As much as I enjoy it, spending a ton of time in the kitchen isn’t always realistic. Enter the super easy cake mix cookie. Busy moms, rejoice! Making cookies with cake mix has become a favorite of mine. I honestly haven’t made a batch yet that I haven’t loved. Not only are they quick and easy but they’re also simple enough for little bakers to help.

Valentine’s day + my love of all things pink + sweets = the perfect opportunity for a cookie baking session!

An initial ‘cake mix cookie’ search on Pinterest can be overwhelming; who knew there were so many ways to do the same thing? After making cake mix cookies a handful of times, I’ve perfected my recipe. I’ve tried a few variations but it keeps coming back to a standard base of only three ingredients (I told you to rejoice!). 


  • 1 Box of strawberry cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional, although it makes your cookies taste just like a milkshake)
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips and/or Valentine’s M&Ms (also optional)


  • Preheat oven to 375*
  • Mix cake, eggs, and oil together until there are no lumps
  • Fold in chocolate chips or M&M’s
  • Spray your baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray
  • Roll similar sized balls of dough and place on baking sheet
  • Bake for 10 minutes
  • Let cool on a cooling rack
  • Resist the urge to eat the entire sheet full of cookies. Or go hide in the closet and eat them all. I won’t judge.

Easy, quick, and delicious. Whip these Valentine’s Day cookies up for your little ones as a fun treat or surprise your dessert-loving friends or better half with a plate of these delicious cookies. I’d love to know how they come out if you make them so be sure to drop a comment and let me know! Or post a photo on IG using the hashtag #nphxmoms.  Happy Baking!
