Chocolate Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies with Chocolate Ganache Recipe

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!
