The cookies could not be easier to make. All you need is a box of cake mix, with some oil and eggs. Mix it all together and bake.





Like magic, a cake mix, is transformed into chewy, perfect chocolate cookies in minutes!



Whip up some sweet filling, that is tinted a beautiful pink hue and tastes just like a strawberry milkshake!!



Then we get to put it all together!



Just spread on the filling, sandwich a cookie on top and enjoy! How cute are these?!


You can even use little cookie cutters, to make cute shapes in your cookies, like I did in my Valentine’s Chocolate Cherry Cake Mix Sandwich Cookies.




Chocolate Strawberry Sandwich Cookies (DIY PINK OREOS!)

Yield: 26-28 cookies, 13-14 sandwich cookies


Ingredients

Cookies:
  • 1 box Chocolate cake mix
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
Filling*:
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick/2oz.) salted softened butter or vegetable shortening
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4 cup strawberry flavored milk powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons heavy whipping cream (sub half and half or milk if necessary) 
  • drop of pink food coloring, if desired

Directions
Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a mixing bowl, beat together the cake mix, eggs and oil until combined. Scoop 1 1/2 tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, and flatten into disks, at least 2 inches apart. Bake in preheated oven for about 9-11 minutes, or just until the cookies are set in the middle. Let cookies cool on baking sheet for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack, to cool completely.

To make the filling, beat the softened butter on medium-high speed until smooth and creamy. Add the rest of the ingredients. Increase to medium-high speed and beat for an additional 3-4 minutes until smooth, light and fluffy.

Place half of the cookies upside down on a plate and spread an even layer of filling onto the bottom side of the completely cooled cookies. Gently press a second cookie on top, and enjoy!
