easy as pie

this year I wanted to try something new for the 4th of july
and I had pinned this ridiculously easy recipe a while back
so I figured I would give baking cake cookies a shot
 now I just hope that they taste as great as they look

here's how easy they are to make:
1 box of yellow cake mix
2 eggs beaten
5 T melted butter
2 cups M&Ms or mini chocolate chips [I went for a patriotic twist]

mix all ingredients together and bake at 350F for 25 minutes
I put mine in a pie dish so mine took a little longer to bake
the original recipe called for a 9X13 pan
so do as I did and check often!
thanks to I'm a Lazy Mom for the recipe

now officially one step closer to getting my 4th of july on tomorrow!


  1. So festive! I love it. I'm going to have to give it a try. Warmed, with vanilla ice cream on top... oh man...

    1. got the vanilla ice cream all ready to go for tomorrow!

  2. Looks very yummy and fitting for the 4th of July!

    1. They were pretty yummy - I think next time I will try them in a thinner baking dish so they cook more evenly, and quicker :)
