Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies

Source: Stephanie Cooks

Nate and I were super tired last night.  This weekend was considered very active for us, a wedding Friday night and the company Super Bowl party Sunday night.  So to say our day at work was dragging would be an understatement!  For dinner we had tortellini salad and cooked chicken, that’s it.  That was the only thing between us and plopping down on the couch for a couple episodes of Lost (if you haven’t watched this show, JUST DO IT!).

I was surfing the web and came across a recipe for cake batter cookies. My light bulb went off (in my head, not the house) because I still had a whole box of strawberry cake mix from that bark I made a few weeks ago.  So with that and the mention of chocolate, my butt hopped off the couch so fast you would’ve thought it had ants all over it or something!

Mixing the ingredients took all of 2 minutes, the longest part was waiting for the oven to preheat.  You don’t even need a mixer, just a bowl and your handy dandy hands…or spoon.  Because these are strawberry, pink, and cute, they would be perfect to make for a Valentine’s Day treat, hint hint.



Ingredients
1 (18.25 oz.) box strawberry cake mix
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup chocolate chips

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

In a medium bowl, stir together the cake mix and baking powder. Add eggs and oil, then stir until well blended.

Stir in chocolate chips, I used leftover bags of white and dark chocolate chips.

Use a tablespoon to portion out the cookie dough balls on the cookie sheet.  (I used 2 cookie sheets)

Bake for 12 minutes, remove from oven and cool on baking sheets for 5-10 minutes.

Then move to a wire rack to cool completely.

  1. Oh yes, would need to cut down on the oil in that case. I will see if I can find a smaller box and see what I can come up with as far as the proportions. I probably won't change the chocolate chips though!!🙂
