Strawberry Chocolate Cookies loaded with fresh strawberries and chocolate chips are game changers. They are wonderfully chewy and stay soft.
I’ve always had a love affair with strawberries. I'm the happiest person on this planet when the strawberry season arrives every year. I go back to my childhood when I used to eat LOTS of strawberries right from my parents’ backyard. They are still the most scentful strawberries I’ve ever eaten. That’s why these strawberry chocolate cookies have the same big effect on me. I remember my childhood memories in each bite.
Strawberries are yummy. Chocolate is a weakness for everyone. Chewy chocolate chip cookies are addictive. I mean it’s no surprise that these cookies are sinfully good as they are loaded with strawberries and chocolate. This recipe is all in one and you can't stop eating these once you start. They taste even better when you spread some mascarpone cheese while eating. Just sayin’
It’s not the first time I’m combining strawberry and chocolate. As I think they make the best and most passionate couple ever, I’ve made recipes using these two before. Check out our Easy Chocolate Strawberry Tartlets or Chocolate Cake With Strawberries. These are loved so much by my family and friends, so I’m 100% sure that these cookies will become their favorite cookies, just like our Citrus and Chocolate Cookies.
Although it’s a well-known fact that chocolate and strawberries match wonderfully, I couldn’t find a chocolate cookie recipe with strawberries on the web. To my surprise, nobody has tried to make such a recipe. Could that be because fresh strawberries easily get juicy when baked? They might cause the cookies to become soggy. Read the note below to learn how to avoid soggy cookies when you use fresh strawberries in a cookie dough.
The recipes I’ve seen either call for strawberry cake mix or use strawberries but not in a chocolate cookie form. I wasn’t after these. I wanted to make regular chocolate cookies packed with chocolate chips and fresh strawberries. Sort of triple joy.
So I decided to test this cookie recipe myself and the result was AMAZING! Give it a try and thank me later.
- To avoid sogginess in your cookies, you need to pat dry the strawberries with a paper towel after they are chopped. This is a vital step in this recipe. Otherwise you might end up with a result you never desire.
- Store these cookies in the refrigerator after the first day because they might go off due to the fresh strawberries inside.
- Don’t store these cookies in an air tight container, cover them using a plastic wrap with a small opening so that they don’t get too soft.

Could ou lease give the measurements in grams.Thanks so much.
I love the recipe, but every time I make it, it come out like a cakey goodness and I would like to know what to do to make them crunchier
Did you pat dry the strawberries before folding them into the dough? This step is important.
These normally turn out chewy. If you want them crunchy, bake them longer. Like 15-17 minutes.
Just to clarify, the cocoa powder is unsweetened, right? Looking forward to trying these soon!
Hi Melanie! That's right, we use unsweetened cocoa powder. Hope you love these cookies as much as I do.
The cookies were a hit! Everyone I gave the most to absolutely loved them!
Hi Melanie! So glad to hear that everyone loved it. Thanks for the feedback!
Wow. These look delicious. I didn't realize until I read this that there are no choc strawberry cookie recipes around! I love soft chewy cookies. They're the best. These look perfect. I'm going to try your recipe.
