I found this recipe on Pinterest for these delicious Strawberry Chocolate Chip Cookies, courtesy of Sallys Baking Addition blog.

I made it last Sunday and took the leftovers into my co-workers. They looked at the cookies strangely at first ("Why's it pink?") then once they smelled them, they were a hit. The cookies have a strong strawberry smell and are very berry soft. I would make this recipe again because of how simple it was. You can mix it all by hand and the ingredients are pretty common household items. 

Makes 24 cookies. 

Ingredients:
  • 1 box (18.25 oz) strawberry cake mix
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup vegetable/canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips (I just used like a half a bag) 

In the oven
Instructions:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. 
  • In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix and baking powder. 
  • In a smaller bowl, whisk together the eggs, oil, and vanilla by hand.
  • Add the wet mixture to the dry mixture and stir to form a dough 
  • Gently mix in the chocolate chips.
  • Drop rounded balls of dough onto prepared baking sheet. 
  • Bake for 10 minutes
  • Allow to cool on baking sheet for 3 minutes
  • Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely
