16 cookies


  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package strawberry cake mix

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 2 large eggs

  • cup canola oil

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 ¼ cups semisweet chocolate chips, or more to taste


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Mix together cake mix and baking powder in a large bowl and set aside.

  3. Whisk together eggs, oil, and vanilla extract in a smaller bowl. Add egg mixture to cake mixture and stir vigorously to form a dough; be sure to incorporate all pockets of dry cake mix. Gently mix in chocolate chips.

  4. Drop rounded balls of dough, about 2 1/2 tablespoons each, onto the prepared baking sheet; make balls taller than they are wide. Add 1 or 2 additional chocolate chips onto each cookie, if desired.

  5. Bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes; do not let cookies brown.

  6. Allow the soft cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes. Cookies will sink as they cool; you can press down gently with your fingers if necessary. Transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Cook's Note:

Be sure to keep an eye on them so they don't brown, this will make them look less pink. Add a few extra chocolate chips on the top to make them look nice.
