I love making cookies and there is no recipe I won’t try. From biscottis to linzer cookies, I have tried and made them all. I have to say that when I saw a recipe for cake mix cookies, I was skeptical but I decided to give them a try and my oh my am I glad I did! With a slight crunch on the outside and a soft, chewy inside, these were delicious and can be made in numerous ways by changing up the cake mix flavor and the candy you decide to put in there. I used M&M’s in my last batch, but next time I just might try some Heath bits or Snickers. Sounds so good, I will have to blog about that later. 🙂
