You pick your child up from school, you ask, “how was your day?”  They respond by telling you they need to bring 5 dozen homemade cookies to school tomorrow, and you haven’t even decided what’s for dinner tonight!

Normally with a little bit more advanced notice, it would be no problem to have 5 dozen homemade cookies from scratch.  I love making cookies and…eating cookies.  There are just some night’s it is much easier to open a box cake mix add a couple of eggs and some oil and well la, you’ve got cookies.  Very tasty cookies!

Valentine Cake Mix Cookies
  • 1 Box White Cake Mix, Duncan Hines
  • 2 Eggs
  • ⅓ Cup Vegetable oil
  • 1 Cup M&M's
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Using a hand mixer, combine cake mix, eggs, and vegetable oil in a large mixing bowl, beat until completely combined.
  3. Add M&M's and stir by hand so you don't break the M&M's.
  4. Place spoonfuls of cookie dough on to a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.
  5. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Check for doneness. Time might vary depending upon your oven.
  6. Let cook on a wire rack.

Since I made these cookies, I figured out how to get the M&M’s colors not to bleed in to the dough while baking.  For the life of me, I could not figure out how some bakers had such perfect cookies.
