Red, White, & Blue Sparkle Cookies

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • ½ cup oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup red, white, and blue M&M's®
  • White sanding sugars (found in the cake/candy making aisles of most craft stores)

Preheat the oven to 350℉.

Mix together the cake mix, eggs, oil, and vanilla. Add candy and stir well. Take a tablespoon of the cookie batter and gently roll in the candy sugars, place on the baking sheet, and repeat until all the batter is used.

Bake 8-10 minutes, watching carefully until the edges just start to brown. Do not overcook!
