Even though I’m practically counting down the days until I can put up our Christmas decorations, that doesn’t mean I can’t get a head start on Christmas baking.

Since having kids, I haven’t really had time to bake like I used to. So it’s pretty rare that I make anything from scratch anymore these days.

That said, I’ve learned to improvise.

I decided to use the Milk Chocolate Holiday M&M’s for this recipe, but I also picked up a bag of the dark chocolate M&M’s to try in a different batch.

I’m a sucker for dark chocolate so I’m excited to test these out!

Author: The Millennial Stay-At-Home Mom

Ingredients

  • 1 Box Cake Mix of your choice
  • 2 Large Eggs Room Temperature
  • 3/4 Cup Butter Melted
  • 1 Cup M&M’s
  • 1/2 Cup M&M’s For Topping

Instructions

  • Pre-Heat The Oven to 325 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper (foil also does the trick)
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the cake mix, eggs, and melted butter until you get a smooth but sticky texture.
  • Stir in the M&M’s to the mixture, but be careful not to crush the M&M’s
  • On a lined baking sheet, scoop the dough out into little balls. An ice cream scoop works perfectly for this.
  • Bake each batch for 9-12mins. Allow them to cool on the baking sheet for 3 minutes and then place them on a cooling rack until fully cooled (about 5 minutes).

Notes

Yields about 2 dozen cookies depending on the size of the balls of dough.
I made my cookies a bit bigger and got about 16 total. 
Happy Baking
