easy-peasy chocolate M&M cookies

by Shawni

Grace whipped these puppies up on the last day of school.  They were so easy and I must admit they tasted pretty good too so I figured I’d share how she made them.

All you do is mix these together:

1 pkg. devils food cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 c. oil

Add M&Ms and bake at 350 for 8 minutes.

That’s it.  Voila

My friend made these as “home-made Oreos” that Grace died over when she shared a few with her.  She doubled the recipe and added this frosting to sandwich two cookies together at a time:

1/2 c. cream cheese
1/2 c. butter (softened)
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. salt
4 c. powdered sugar
5 tbs. milk

I think maybe we should do a taste-test between those and these ones back here.

Hmmm…I wonder which would win…

You could also do this same cake recipe with a yellow cake mix and add chocolate chips, or a chocolate one and make it double chocolate chip cookies.

Oh, the possibilities are endless.

And unhealthy.

But sometimes, if you’re like me, you just need a little cookie to get you through the day.

One of my boys goals this summer is to learn to make 3 kinds of cookies, because you know cookies are another food group right? These will be perfect for them to start on!

I have 3 young sons whom I love to pieces and a husband that I love even more. Yesterday I was frustrated with my boys (my husband is out of town this week) and some house issues we are having. I was angry, frustrated and disappointed with how dinner went. Anyway I found your website somewhere on pinterest and spent hours reading it last night. I have so many new and encouraging ideas now, which has turned my focus away from my house. I also ordered 4 books last night. Anyway just wanted to thank you for your website and for trying so hard at your marriage and kiddos. They are all so beautiful! Leslie

We make these too, and they are also great with white chocolate chips or peanut butter chocolate chips.

I loved this so much that my daughter and I made a batch for Father's Day gifts. They were so easy and delish! Thank you for sharing. I linked your blog and added the recipe to my favorite stash. They were so good! 🙂
