Cake Mix Christmas Cookies

I’m not much of a domestic goddess, but I do love to bake! I’ve been a baker since I was a little girl. I would love to sit and help my mom bake in the kitchen for hours! It was always so much fun for me and I used to love seeing what kinds of cookies and dessert combinations she was going to create. As I’ve gotten older and have become a mom myself, whenever the holidays roll around I crave for my kids to have the same sweet memories of me in the kitchen baking. My mother in law shared this easy and (if I do say so myself!) delicious recipe with me years ago for the boys when they were little. I haven’t baked these Cake Mix Christmas Cookies in probably 5 years! I had so much fun this weekend whipping them up for the kids! Victoria (literally) ate about 10 of them on Saturday!

When mixed, stir in M&M’s. The dough will be sticky, this is very normal! I was worried when I first made these cookies that I did something wrong. If the dough is sticky, it means you’re doing it right!

Then place on an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 13-15 minutes (or until golden brown). I add a few extra M&Ms on top! You don’t want them to burn on the bottom, so make sure you do keep a good eye on them!

  1. I like M&M’s festive green and red candies and you have gone and tossed them into a cookie recipe! I am thinking you are Nobel Peace Prize worthy for this one! I love indulging in a just out of the oven chocolaty cookie, especially when paired with a big bowl crazy bowl of ice cream. I wonder if I could use the peanut M&Ms I am thinking, YES! Thank you for sharing!
