Life has been busy lately! I’ve been doing some baking for people other than myself, I spend most of my free time with Baby J, and we’ve been trying to get out and do some things as a family. I’m loving everything we are doing but I haven’t had much time for baking.
I’ve been wanting to try out some recipes for Easter but because Valentine’s Day, Mardi Gras, St. Patrick’s Day, and Easter are all within six weeks of each other this year there hasn’t been much time to practice and create holiday recipes. I’ve been looking for some easy recipes that don’t take a lot of time but are great for the holidays. I’m all for semi-homemade foods.
This recipe for Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies is so easy to make. It only takes a handful of ingredients and the cookies bake up quickly. I had all of the cookies made and baked in under 45 minutes. The awesome thing about this recipe is you can choose any add-ins you want depending on the holiday.
For this version I used add-ins for Easter. I mixed up the Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies and then added in Pastel M&M’s and white chocolate chips. I thought the colors and the flavor of the white chocolate chips screamed Easter. I love how fun and colorful these cookies are.
They turned out really delicious too. These cookies are soft and flavorful. They taste like a cross between cake and a cookie and then the M&M’s add in a delicious kick of chocolate. Serve these after Easter dinner or wrap them up and put them in Easter baskets!
