Soft & delicious cookies packed with fresh strawberries and dipped in chocolate!

Strawberry Cookies dipped in chocolate are so easy to make and are a unique twist on the regular chocolate chip cookie. Soft and chewy, they’re just the way I like my cookie treats, and the fresh strawberries add such a gorgeous color and flavor. Dip the bottom of the cookies in melted milk chocolate and you have the flavor of chocolate dipped strawberries in a delicious cookie!

If you have some strawberries kicking around your refrigerator that have lost their plump juiciness this is a perfect recipe for you! Dice up those berries and toss them into the easy cookie dough. Once baked they’ll taste perfect and flavorful. In addition to these cookies, here are some other ideas to use up strawberries in your fridge:

  • Freeze them to use for smoothies
  • Muddle them for cocktails like this delicious Frose or my Sunset Sangria or Strawberry Lemonade Beergaritas.
  • Older berries are perfect for baking! Like these strawberry cookies, they taste yummy in pancakes, muffins, cupcakes or waffles.
  • Make a batch of my Strawberry Syrup and then drizzle it on everything from toast to pancakes. So good!
  • Make strawberry jam.
  • Toss some sliced strawberries into my Strawberry Spinach Salad.

That is the question with these strawberry cookies; they’re yummy with or without the chocolate. Chocolate gives the cookies a deeper, richer flavor, but they’re perfectly delicious all on on their own. Try any kind of chocolate you like: I personally love milk chocolate on this cookie, but you could use dark or semi-sweet chocolate chips too.

  • Melt the chocolate chips of your choice in the microwave for about thirty seconds at a time, stirring in between until they’re completely melted.
  • Dip the bottom of each cookie in the chocolate and allow them to cool on wax paper until they’re set.
  • You can also put them in the fridge or freezer to allow them to chill faster.


  • To avoid soggy cookie dough, chop up your strawberries and lay them on a paper towel and gently pat them dry.
  • You can also use dehydrated strawberries in this recipe.
  • The cookie dough may be a bit crumbly; that’s good! Once you add the strawberries, roll the dough into balls and bake them on a silicone or parchment paper so they don’t stick to the cookie sheet.
  • Melt your butter completely but let it cool before you add it to the mixture.


If you love these strawberry cookies, you’ll go nuts for these simple, scrumptious cookie recipes:

I hope you love these delicious little cookies. The sweet strawberry flavor brightens this basic cookie recipe and the chocolate adds a depth of richness that can’t be beat! Let me know in the comments what you think of this recipe and enjoy every single bite!

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 14 tablespoons unsalted butter room temperature (197.8 grams)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar (99 grams)

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup strawberries diced (80 grams)

    2 1/2 cups all purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • In a large bowl with a hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer fit with the paddle attachment, beat together the butter and sugars. Beat until light and fluffy, about three to six minutes.
    14 tablespoons unsalted butter, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • One at a time, beat in the eggs. Once combined, add in the vanilla extract.
    2 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Add the flour mixture. Start the mixer on low. When just beginning to combine, turn the mixer up all the way and mix until the flour is no longer seen, being careful not to over-mix.

    I don’t have fresh strawberries without going out to the store, but I have frozen strawberries. Will that work?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Hi Bente! I actually am going to say no. Fruit when you defrost it releases a lot of water, which I think will really mess with this recipe. If you were to just throw them in frozen, it would drastically change the temperature of things which will also mess with the recipe. Sorry :/

  2. Traci says

    I made these cookies tonight and they came out really flat?

    • Lisa Longley says

      Gah, I’m sorry Traci! I will take a look at the recipe and see if it needs some tweaking.

  3. Melissa Howell says

    Hey Lisa, I have made these cookies a bunch because they are my daughter’s favorite! However, I can never get them to look like yours. I keep telling myself to add more flour, and I have added a quarter cup, but they still come out really flat and brown. (By the way, that’s what the Spanish comment said above as well). Do you think I need more flour? I have even chilled the dough and the cookies still spread way too much. Help!
