These cookies are a red-do from one week ago today. Exactly one week ago, I featured a cookie I called an – Oatmeal Chocolate Toffee Cookie. I almost never have toffee bits in anything. So naturally I thought, yum!
You know how there are times things just don’t turn out the way you thought they would? That’s exactly what happened with the original version of this cookie.
As it turns out my oldest son is not a fan of anything with Heath pieces. Who knew? Now he knows what that “stuff he doesn’t like” is called.
What I don’t understand is this comes from a kid who loves almost anything sweet. For goodness sakes, he puts Nerds on his chocolate custard at Culver’s when he can!!
So I thought, if he really just can’t get past the Heath part of the cookie (Milk Chocolate Toffee Bits) there must be other people who feel the same way!
Yes, I realize you can’t please everyone! But I thought I should take another whirl at this cookie, and so I did.
I’m happy to report my taste testers are much happier with this version.
So here we have the final product – Oatmeal Chocolate Chip M&M Cookies.
Your usual ingredients. You can start these cookies with a regular oatmeal chocolate chip dough if you want. I just happen to like the taste of the Golden Vanilla Cake Mix.
Ahhh, they smell so good cooling on the cooling rack.
Fresh cookies for dessert. Who could ask for more?
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip – M&M Cookies
1 cake mix – I like Golden Vanilla, but yellow, or white works just fine
1/2 cup butter, softened but not melted
1 1/2 cups quick oats
1/2 cup M&M’s (I like the mini’s myself)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (milk or semi-sweet)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. With a spoon, mix cake mix and quick oats together. With same spoon, add eggs, and butter to the mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and M&M’s. Drop dough balls onto a cookie sheet lined with a baking mat, or lightly greased cookie sheet.
Bake 9-12 minutes or until light golden brown edges. Allow cookies to cool for 2 minutes before moving. Remove cookies and place on nonstick rack to cool.
You can use milk chocolate chips, semi sweet chocolate chips, dark chocolate chips or even white chocolate chips for this recipe. Use whatever you like.
