Strawberry Heart Slicing Tips & Tricks 

  1. Choose Ripe Strawberries: Select ripe strawberries that are firm, without blemishes or soft spots. The shape and size of the strawberry will affect the heart shape.
  2. Wash and Hull the Strawberries: Rinse the strawberries under cold running water and pat them dry with a paper towel. To hull them, use a small paring knife or a dedicated strawberry huller to remove the green stem and any white core.
  3. Slice in Half: Start by slicing the strawberry in half vertically from the tip to the stem end. This will give you two equal-sized halves.
  4. Shape the Hearts for your Easy Grinch Heart Cookies With White Chocolate Chips : To create the heart shape, position one of the halves with the cut side facing down. Then, use a small, sharp knife to make a diagonal cut from the top center of the strawberry down to the center of the rounded bottom. This cut should resemble one side of a heart.
  5. Mirror the Cut: Repeat the same diagonal cut on the other half of the strawberry, but in the opposite direction, so the two cuts meet in the center, forming a heart shape. Adjust the angles of your cuts as needed to achieve the desired heart shape.
  6. Practice and Patience: It might take a few tries to get the heart shape just right, so don’t be discouraged if your first few attempts aren’t perfect. The more you practice, the better you’ll become at creating uniform heart-shaped strawberry slices.
  7. Uniform Sizing: For a neat presentation, aim for uniform heart shapes. If you’re making a large quantity, consider using a small heart-shaped cookie cutter as a guide for your cuts.
  8. Use Immediately: Heart-shaped strawberry slices are best used immediately or shortly after slicing, as they can start to lose their shape and freshness if left out too long.

Servings 16 Cookies


  • Cookie Sheet Pan
  • parchment paper
  • Medium Cookie Scoop


  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • Lime green food color
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 12 oz frosting white
  • A handful of fresh strawberries


  • For the Lemon Grinch Heart Cookies:
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the lemon cake mix, vegetable oil, and eggs. Mix until well combined.
  • Add lime green food coloring to achieve the desired Grinch-like color. Start with a few drops and adjust until you reach the shade you want.
  • Fold in the white chocolate chips into the cookie dough.
  • Using a cookie scoop or your hands, form the dough into small balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet, leaving some space between each.
  • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden. The cookies will continue to set as they cool.
  • Remove from the oven and let the Easy Grinch Heart Cookies With White Chocolate Chips cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • For the Frosting and Spiral Decoration:
  • Once the cookies are completely cooled, spread a thin layer of white frosting on top of each cookie.
  • To create the spiral decoration, use a piping bag fitted with a small round tip or a resealable plastic bag with a tiny corner snipped off. Start from the center of the cookie and pipe a spiral of frosting, working your way outward.
  • For the Heart-Shaped Strawberry Garnish:
  • Wash and hull the fresh strawberries.
  • Slice each strawberry vertically into thin slices.
  • Take two slices and arrange them on top of the frosting on each cookie to create a heart shape.
  • Repeat this process for all the cookies.
  • Allow the frosting to set for a little while before serving Easy Grinch Heart Cookies With White Chocolate Chips!
