Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and that totally puts me in the mood for pink desserts. This valentine cake is one of my favorites but these chocolate candy hearts are pretty awesome too! I love pretty desserts already but when they’re easy to make too, it’s the perfect combination!  

Why we love this recipe

Cake mix cookies are one of my favorite easy recipes! They’re probably the easiest cookies you can make and they taste so delish, kind of a cross between cookies and cake.

Plus, if you’ve got the strawberry cake mix in the pantry, you probably already have everything else you need to make these sweet treats (and if you’ve got extra, you can use it to make some of these other Strawberry Cake Mix Recipes).

That’s why I’m loving this easy cookie recipe. These cookies are super easy to make and you only need 5 ingredients.

Step 6: Use a piping bag or a spoon to drizzle glaze over the cookies. Let sit for a couple minutes until the glaze sets, then they’re ready to eat.

These cookies turned out so good that they’re almost too pretty to eat…I love the beautiful pink color! They taste even better with a cold glass of milk!

If you want to try something different, you can add white chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips and even M&M’s instead of adding the glaze. Buttercream frosting would be tasty too.

You can even make the cookies a different flavor by using a different kind of cake mix, like lemon or even funfetti cake mix cookies. There is just so much you can do with this recipe!

How to store cake mix cookies

If you’re lucky enough to have some of these left over, you can store them in an airtight container at room temperature for 4-5 days.

These easy cake mix cookies make an excellent teacher gift or valentines day treat. It’s also a great recipe when you need the perfect pink cookies for baby showers (if it’s a girl, of course).

  • Preheat oven to 350
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Use a mixer to combine the strawberry cake mix, vegetable oil and eggs in large mixing bowl.
    15.25 ounces strawberry cake mix, 1/3 cup vegetable oil, 2 eggs
  • Use a cookie scoop to measure the batter and space evenly on cookie sheet.
  • Bake 8-10 minutes, until the edges begin to brown and the top of the cookie starts to crack (10 minutes max unless you used a larger scoop).
  • Remove from oven and let cool. You’ll want to be sure they’re cool before moving them from the parchment paper, since cake mix cookies are more delicate when warm.
  • To prepare glaze, whisk together confectioners sugar and milk,
    1 cup confectioners sugar, 5 tbsp milk
  • Once cookies have cooled, use piping bag or spoon to drizzle glaze over the cookies.
  • Allow glaze to set and enjoy!


When making the glaze, 4 tablespoons of milk makes thick defined stripes on the cookie while 6 tablespoons thins it out and the glaze blends in a little more. Five tablespoons were used in these photos.
