Chewy Strawberry M&M Valentine’s Cake Cookies

Last year I made some of the most amazing Chewy M&M Cookies ever. They were such a hit that Mike and the girls asked me to make them again for Valentine’s Day.  I wanted to surprise them with something different so I made these Chewy Strawberry M&M Valentine’s Cake Cookies… now it is a toss up to decide which one we like best.

Chewy Strawberry M&M Valentine’s Cake Cookies


  • 1 stick of melted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 c M&Ms
  • 1 c white chocolate chips
  • 1 box strawberry cake mix


In a mixer, combine butter, egg, vanilla and cream cheese and mix on low until mixed thoroughly. Slowly add in dry cake mix until well combined.  Remove from mixer and gently stir in M&Ms and white chocolate ships by hand. Cover and refrigerate dough until firm, at least one hour. Roll dough into one inch balls and place on a greased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350* for 10-12 minutes – you do not want the cookies to brown.  Cookies will still be soft to the touch.  Let cookies cool on cookie sheet for a few minutes, then remove to a wire rack to finish cooling.

    Can you make cupcakes with this recipe instead out just make a cake with it? Would it be the same

      Hi Faran! I do not think that would work with this recipe – the consistency of the batter is much thicker for the cookies than it would be for cupcakes. Now, you could tweak the recipe specifically FOR cupcakes with the same ingredients – I may have to test it out! Ha!
