My kids always ask for something sweet and now with the holidays I have a lot of cookie exchange parties to go to. This year I decided to keep it simple and bring to my cookie exchanges something I make all year long that can be dished up during the holidays as well as at Birthday parties or just a treat for the kids.
I can prepare a batch of cookies anytime, anywhere and will take about 8 minutes to make and trust me, your friends and kids will beg for more. We love to mix up our cake cookies and add different ingredients. I was at my local Walmart the other day, grocery shopping and saw that the M&M’s are on price cut.
I love me a sweet deal and grabbed a few bags in case the kids would get a sweet tooth. Well, my kids sure could smell the M&M’s a mile away, as soon as I came home they asked if I could make some cookies and since I had another exchange this weekend, I was all up for experimenting with my treats.
