Holiday cake mix cookies

In spirit of the holidays, I decided it would only be right to make Christmas M&M cookies. These were super east to make. Usually during this time of year it is very easy to find a bag of red and green M&Ms, so I went to Walmart and started my journey! I’ve created  a little fun video for you guy of me making my cookie dough. Hope you enjoy!


yield: 2 dozen, prep time: 10 minutes, cook time: 9 minutes per batch


1 box white/vanilla cake mix 15.25 oz.
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup canola oil
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup mini M&M’s candy


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl mix together the cake mix and baking powder, set aside. In a small bowl whisk together the eggs, oil, and vanilla. Add mixture to the cake mix, beat with an electric mixer until well blended. Add M&M’s (reserve small amount to put in the tops to make them pretty) stir in with a wooden spoon.

2. Roll in to 1 inch balls and place them 2 inches apart onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Use reserved M&M’s to press randomly into tops of cookie balls for decoration. Bake 9 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 2 to 3 minutes, then transfer to wire rack.
