Making the Strawberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Preheat and prepare – Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Mix and fold – In a large mixing bowl, combine the strawberry cake mix, vegetable oil, and eggs. Stir until well combined, then gently fold in ⅔ cup of white chocolate chips.

  1. Scoop and press – Use a medium cookie scoop to drop portions of the dough onto a prepared baking sheet. Press the remaining ⅓ cup of white chocolate chips into the tops of the cookie dough balls.
  2. Bake and cool – Bake in the preheated oven for 8-10 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are set. Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to complete the cooling process. Enjoy these quick and delightful cookies!

Variations and substitutions

Oil options – Feel free to use any neutral-flavored oil for these cookies. Canola, grapeseed, or refined coconut oils are excellent choices that won’t overpower the delicate flavors.

Chocolate swap – Switch things up by using milk, semi-sweet, or dark chocolate chips instead of white chocolate for a richer, classic chocolate chip cookie variation. I also love using half white and half semi-sweet chocolate chips in these cookies for a double chocolate version. 

Cake mix versatility – This recipe serves as a versatile base that can be used with any flavor of cake mix. Explore a multitude of possibilities by trying different cake mixes to personalize your cookies.

Size matters – Customize the cookie size to your liking by adjusting the cookie scoop. Whether you prefer bite-sized treats or larger cookies, remember to adjust the baking time accordingly for optimal results. Large cookies will need longer in the oven than smaller ones.

Tips for success

  • Check the box sizeBetty Crocker cake mix box sizes have changed recently and are now 13.25 ounces. This recipe was created using a 13.25-ounce box. If you are using a 15.25-ounce box of cake mix, increase the oil to ½ cup for optimal results.
  • Even cookie sizes – Use a uniform cookie scoop to create even-sized dough portions. This ensures consistent baking and uniform cookies.
  • Baking precision – Keep a close eye on the cookies during the last few minutes of baking to ensure the edges are set but the middle is still soft to prevent overbaking.
  • Transfer to a cooling rack – To maintain a soft texture, promptly transfer the cookies to a cooling rack after 5 minutes on the baking sheet. The cookies will continue to bake on the hot surface of the baking sheet.

Storage

The cookies can be frozen in an airtight container or freezer bag for up to 3 months. Allow the cookies to thaw at room temperature before enjoying them.

Strawberry White Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies FAQs

What is a cake mix cookie?

A cake mix cookie is a type of cookie made using a boxed cake mix as one of the main ingredients. Instead of preparing the cake batter as directed on the box, the cake mix is combined with a few additional ingredients, such as oil and eggs, to create cookie dough. The dough is then shaped into cookies and baked. Cake mix cookies are known for their simplicity and versatility, allowing for a variety of flavors and mix-ins, making them a quick and easy treat.

Can I omit the white chocolate chips?

Certainly, you can omit the white chocolate chips or substitute them with your preferred add-ins like nuts or dried fruit.

What if I don’t have parchment paper?

While parchment paper is recommended for easy cleanup, you can also use a lightly greased or non-stick baking sheet.
