25 Days of Christmas Cookies: Day 3 Holiday Cake Mix Cookies

I wanted to make some quick fresh cookies for a party over the weekend.  I had the red and green mini M&M's so this recipe was perfect.  They didn't take long to make, there weren't a lot of ingredients, so what could be better? You still have time to mix up a batch before Christmas.  I think the big guy would like them for his snack on his busy night.
Start with a white or vanilla cake mix.
Empty the cake mix into a bowl.
Add 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup canola oil
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup mini red and green M&M's candy.  Could use the Valentine mix for Valentine's Day later on.
I used my cookie scoop and scooped up the dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet.  Place in a preheated 350 oven.  Bake for about 9 minutes or until they are lightly brown.  They won't get real brown so don't over bake because you don't want the bottoms to burn.
Warm from the oven.  These are easy cookies that taste great too.
