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!
Chocolate Strawberry Cake Mix Cookies with Chocolate Ganache Recipe:
(Makes 36 cookies)
1 (15.25 ounce) milk chocolate cake mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
Strawberry Buttercream Filling:
½ cup butter, softened to room temperature
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup strawberry preserves
3-4 cups powdered sugar
A few drops of red food coloring, optional
Chocolate Ganache Layer:
2 ¼ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
¾ cup unsalted butter
Mix all cookie ingredients together and roll into 1” balls. Place on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 6-8 minutes. Remove from baking sheet and let cool completely. Mix buttercream filling ingredients together and spread a generous amount on each cookie. Melt chocolate chips and butter in the microwave for 2 minutes, stirring halfway through. Mix until smooth and spread over frosted cookies.
