12 Days of Christmas Cookies, Day 7: Cake Mix Christmas Bar Cookies - Easiest Christmas Cookie Recipe EVER
What’s also so awesome about this recipe is that you can personalize it when it comes to the cake mix flavor, the additions, and the decorations on top.
I make the bars with ½ cup holiday M & Ms and ½ cup chocolate chips. But you can alter that to what you have in your pantry or what you like better when it comes to taste.
And choose what color or variety of sprinkles, nonpareils, or cookie decos to sprinkle on top to make these cookies your own!
Prep time: <5 minutes
