    Cake Mix Cookies

    Ingredients: 1 box of cake mix, 2 eggs, 1/3 cup of vegetable oil

    Optional: 1 ½ cups of mix-ins (chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, mini M&M’s, etc.)

    Directions:

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Mix all the ingredients until combined. (An adult may need to help get it mixed well.)
    3. Scoop 2 tablespoons worth of dough on a parchment lined baking sheet, 2 inches apart.
    4. Bake for 11-13 minutes.

    What makes these cookies great is that you can change up the cake flavor and the mix-ins. Use a red velvet or lemon cake mix with white chocolate chips, a chocolate cake mix with peanut butter chips or Andes baking bits, or use a yellow cake mix with chocolate chips or M&M’s.

    2. Mix all the ingredients until combined.
    3. Scoop 1 tablespoon worth of dough, roll into a ball, and then place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
    4. Bake for 10 minutes.
    5. While the cookies are baking, remove any wrapping from candy.
    6. Once cookies are removed from the oven, immediately press candy into the center of the cookie.

    No Bake Graham Cookies
