Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Cookies

Chocolate-Dipped Strawberry Cookies

I absolutely, positively cannot apologize for posting Valentine’s recipes early.

For one, it’s my job. The second the Christmas candy goes on clearance and the heart-shaped candies come out, it’s game-on. And secondly, everyone is all rah-rah kale and diets in January. Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to run from the kale and ruin the diets, am I right?

Hello, juicy filet mignon. Rich red wine. And chocolate — chocolate galore! Whether it be truffles, heart-shaped boxes or chocolate-dipped strawberries, chocolate is pretty much synonymous with this lovey-dovey holiday… which is why I love it. Everyone loves chocolate, right?

And¬†everyone also loves cookies! So by combining both chocolate-dipped strawberries and¬†cookies…? Um, game over. I’m afraid your diet has lost this battle to these tasty, soft and chewy cookies that are coated with a thick layer of Chocolate CandiQuik. They’re every bit as delicious and sinful as you’d hope, and there’s no kale in sight. :)

Recipe type: Cookies
Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • 1 box strawberry cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 tsp strawberry extract
  • ½ pkg Chocolate CandiQuik
  • Valentine's sprinkles (I used pink and white hearts, but any festive Valentine's sprinkles will work!)
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with silicone liners or mist the sheets lightly with cooking spray; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, butter and strawberry extract with a spoon until blended. Drop rounded Tablespoonfuls of dough onto the baking sheets, keeping a 1-2" distance apart from one another.
  3. Bake for approx. 10-12 minutes, rotating pans halfway through baking time to ensure even cooking. Cool completely on the baking sheets.
  4. Once cookies are cool, melt the CandiQuik according to package directions. Dip the cookies halfway into the Chocolate CandiQuik, then return to the baking sheet or a foil-lined flat workspace and immediately sprinkle with your Valentine's sprinkles. Allow the chocolate to set before serving.

Enjoy!!
