Devil's Food Cake Mix Cookies

We just made it back to Houston and are completely worn out, but I wanted to share a quick (and very yummy!) post with you before we hit the hay. I found this recipe while rummaging through my grandma's old cookbook for Thanksgiving baking ideas and decided to make them for Zach's brother and sister-in-law who so graciously let us stay with them the last nine days. Nine days is a very long time to put up with me and Z. I threw in the M&Ms on a whim to add some color and they turned out pretty tasty if I do say so myself. They only took a few minutes to make and call for four ingredients....need I say more?

1 box Devil's Food cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 c. Christmas M&Ms (optional, can also use pecans, coconut, etc.)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Mix first three ingredients together then stir in M&Ms. Roll into walnut-sized balls and place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool 2 minutes on cookie sheet.

*Makes 3 dozen cookies.

I'm sharing this post over at the lovely NewlyWoodwards. She has an awesome Dare to DIY blog party going on that you should definitely check out!


  1. Wow! These sound and look so yummy! I'm kind of obsessed with M&Ms, though. You can come stay with us any time if you bring cookies. ;)

  2. This looks easy and delicious! Will have to try them soon, perfect with the cold weather coming up.
    Thank you for visiting and following my blog! I am your newest follower as well, loving your style.


  3. I agree the M & M's make them look so pretty! I wonder how the pretzel M&M's would taste in these (I'm a little obsessed with those!)
    The possibilities with this recipe are endless. Lemon cake mix, spice cake mix... oh my gosh I am drooling!

  4. These look so easy and delicious. Must try! Thanks for sharing.
