Chocolate Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies with Chocolate Ganache Recipe

These Chocolate Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies with Chocolate Ganache are better than any chocolate covered strawberry. They are the perfect combination of sweet and fruity, and I promise you will not be disappointed.

I love the combination of chocolate and strawberry. Now that spring is here, I am loving all the berries and fresh produce filling the stores.

Some of my favorite cookies are our Chocolate Orange Cake Mix Cookies with Ganache Topping.  I decided to change them up a little with some strawberry buttercream.  They were absolutely delicious.

They were so easy to make, and were made with a cake mix, that the ingredients list is minimal and inexpensive.

They are the perfect treat to indulge in. I prefer them over chocolate covered strawberries, and that is really saying something, because this girl loves her strawberries and chocolate.

If you need a quick and family favorite dessert, I highly recommend these Chocolate Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies.

making them for a special OCCASION?

These cookies are so fun, because they have the perfect splash of pink color to them. They really give off the chocolate covered strawberry feel.

They are so easy to make and perfect for parties. Here are a few occasions that we like to make them for:

-Baby Shower
-Bridal Shower or Bachelorette Party
-Valentine’s Day
-Summer Barbecue
-New Years or Christmas

Really you could make these all year round, and nobody would be complaining because they are just that delicious.

recipe shortcut:

We are all about saving time, as busy moms, with many mouths to feed, and various activities going on. If I can save myself a few minutes in the kitchen, I will.

We love these cookies, but the frosting can take a little bit of time. If you are looking to save a little time, you could easily use a store bought can of strawberry frosting, that would work just as well.

I do prefer the flavor of the homemade stuff, but on busy nights, canned frosting does the trick.
