Valentine's Day Cake Mix Cookies

Here is another edition of Valentine's Day Cookies!  Check out our last Valentine's recipe for these delicious sugar cookies and icing here.

Today we have another recipe that is quick and easy and oh so good.  I make these cookies throughout the year but love to spruce them up for holidays.  At Christmas, I use red and green M&Ms, at Halloween I use the Fall-colored M&Ms.  So for Valentine's of course, I use the red, pink and white M&Ms.
Here we go with our quick and easy recipe!

Cake Mix Cookies

One box Betty Crocker Super Moist White Cake Mix (you can also use a chocolate-flavor if you like)
2 eggs or 1/2 cup pasteurized liquid egg
2/3 cup shortening
White Chocolate Chips
Valentine's M&Ms
Powdered Sugar

Mix half of the box of dry cake mix with the eggs and shortening.  I use my standmixer.  Then mix in by hand the other half of dry cake mix, the chips, and the M&Ms.

If the dough seems too dry and won't hold shape, add a tiny bit of water until it is less dry.  Grab some dough and roll into a ball--I never measure mine but probably about 2".  Roll each ball into powdered sugar, then flatten once with your hand--

Place on ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 8 minutes (I know all ovens are a bit different in their baking times).  I then remove cookies from oven (they will still "give" when pressed), sprinkle with more powdered sugar (I use a small sifter cup I bought years ago at Pantry Chef) and allow to cool slightly on pan for 5 to 10 minutes.  Remove to wire cooling rack.

I have always used the Betty Crocker Super Moist mix so really don't know how another brand will work but if you do try another, comment below and let me know how that worked for you.  If I use a chocolate mix, I use both white chocolate chips and semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips.  Heck, sometimes I put all three in!  The more, the merrier!

Enjoy and thanks for stopping by!

  2. Thanks for supporting the idea of 360 degree feedback. I’ve seen it create division in senior teams when handled incorrectly and seen transformation happen when used elegantly. It’s all about the intention and skill of those who facilitate the process.

  3. Nice Post. You will still need your venue to create memories despite the perfect setting that fits all of your guests. The venue will make your photographs more memorable since cameras will be flashing during the entire ceremony. One day, you’ll look back at your wedding pictures and wish you had blossoms, a beautiful backdrop, and an outdoor wedding. Outdoor weddings may not have things like restrooms, electricity, roofs, etc., that are part of a banquet wedding. So it’s better to discuss these beforehand. A memorable event goes beyond the location. Read more:
