Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cookies and Some News!

Pin It
Before we get to the sweets today, I have some fun news to share with you! On Wednesday this week I am kicking off my very first link party!! I am really excited about it albeit a little scared that no one will link up, haha! Please don't let that happen, I will cry! So mark your calendars and tell your friends, it's gonna be swell :)  Now onto the sugar!


Something you should know about me: I am a girly girl. 
Everyone who knows me knows this. 
I like sparkly things. A lot. 
I have an unreasonable amount of the following:
make up
jewelry
dresses
things that smell pretty
lip gloss
nail polish
And I just keep buying more. I can't help myself. And I'm ok with that.



It should come as no surprise that I like these cookies. They are:
pink
smell pretty
covered in chocolate
adorned with sprinkles
Is there a more girly cookie out there? If you say yes, you are required to send me one :)
Another great thing about these cookies is they only require a handful of ingredients and they are so fast and simple to make. Oh, and they taste amazing!


Chocolate Covered Strawberry Cookies
by: Back For Seconds

  • 1 box strawberry cake mix
  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1 egg
  • 12 oz chocolate
  • sprinkles (if desired)
Preheat oven to 350*
In a large bowl mix together cake mix, butter, and the egg. Scoop onto an ungreased baking sheet and bake for about 7 minutes. Do not over bake! (These cookies don't spread much - I flattened them a bit before baking.) Let cool on wire racks. When cool, melt chocolate in a small bowl and dip half of each cookie into the chocolate. Sprinkle immediately. Store in an airtight container.

Thanks for stopping by and remember to come back Wednesday to party with me at the Back For Seconds Social!!

Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel said...

OMG, these look amazeballs! Anything pink and sparkly has my name all over it, too--no wonder we're such good friends :) plus chocolate covered strawberries are officially a girly food and that means we should eat a plate of these with a bunch of jewelry on and then go shopping. Plus, I'm stoked about your party! I can't wait to link up and join! And love the name, too ;)

Tammy Partin Spangler said...

I'm going to try these with an Orange cake mix instead of strawberry...cause the only thing I like better than strawberry and chocolate is orange and dark chocolate!
