Sharing is caring!

These Valentine Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies are too adorable and are sure to be a hit with your tween girls… betcha!  What girl doesn’t like chocolate pink cookies? And I love having this recipe to add to my list of yummy cookie recipes!

Heck, I bet my boys will be all too happy to eat them, as well. LOL!

Seriously, these Valentine cake mix cookies will be a hit at the next class party.  Plus, since they are an easy cake mix recipe, they don’t include too many ingredients.

That means, you got it, easy for Mom!

While we planned this easy recipe for Valentine’s Day, they would also be adorable at a little girl baby shower.  They are just strawberry cookies with chocolate hearts – so, they would be good for any event that needs pink cookies.

In fact, they kind of taste like chocolate covered strawberry cookies – no food coloring necessary!

Specialty Ingredients:

The following ingredients are affiliate links on Amazon because they may be a bit hard to find in your normal store.  I wanted you to be able to see exactly which things we are using.

Chocolate Hearts – We made our own using edible gold flakes, chocolate, and a heart mold. But, the next time I will cheat and just use some Hershey chocolate hearts. 🙂

Valentine Sprinkles – Choose the ones you like.

Strawberry Cake Mix – I am not real particular about brand. Get whatever you prefer – or whatever is the cheapest. 🙂

Reminder, not all ingredients in the Recipe are linked above, just the ones that may be a bit difficult to find or that you might be unsure of what to look for.

Must Have Resources:

When making Valentine Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies at home, you really need to have the following Amazon affiliate tools on hand.

Cookie Sheets:  I know I sound like a brand snob, but I really love these Wilton Cookie Sheets.  I have had them for nearly 20 years and they are still going strong. That is a big seller for me.

Parchment Paper: This stuff is a game changer for a baker.  Here’s a tip for those that hate it slipping all around: put a small dab of butter on your cookie sheet.  Then, place your parchment paper down. The parchment will stick a bit to the butter, causing it to stay still while you put your circle shape dough down.

Measuring Cups:  A baker worth her salt knows that a good set of measuring cups is a must!

Make it a Party:

You can’t have just cookies at your Valentine’s Day event, you have to have multiple goodies!

Snack: This Valentine’s Chex Mix is a fun way to snack sweetly!

Cupcakes: These Valentine Heart Cupcakes are so cute and simple to make!

Refreshing Drink: Strawberry Candy Corn Mocktail Recipe will be perfect for you and your children.

Best Valentine Cookies:

In my opinion, though, you can never have too many different cookies at any kind of function.

I just love the different flavors of an easy to hold, crunchy, sweet snack like cookies. Don’t you?

Here are some I found around the web:
