It’s been a while since I shared any cake mix cookies with you, hasn’t it? Never fear though, I whipped up a batch that is perfect for Easter! I found Mounds flavored pudding at the store a few weeks ago; chocolate and coconut – one of my favorite flavor combinations! I thought that cake mix cookies made with the Mounds pudding would go wonderfully with the Coconut M&M’s I couldn’t resist when I was at Target last week!
Mounds Cake Mix Cookies
(adapted from Funfetti Cheesecake Cookies by Kitchen Meets Girl)
1 box white cake mix
1 box Mounds instant pudding mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup spring colored sprinkles
1. Preheat oven to 350. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
2. Combine cake mix, pudding mix, oil and eggs in a medium bowl until a dough forms. Mix in the spring sprinkles.
3. Roll dough into small balls and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Flatten the cookie balls slightly with your palm.
4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from oven and immediately press two (or three) coconut M&M’s into the top of each cookie. Let cool for 3 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
These are chewy and delicious, and perfect for those of us who still want some chocolate with our spring-time treats!
