Key Lime, Strawberry and Plain Sprinkle Cookies

There are some cute cookies that my sister bought from the store for her kids to bring to school as a treat. I was surprised that she actually bought different flavors as I always thought children may all want the same kind and then there would not be enought of a certain flavor. The green one is Key lime flavored and was a little tart. The rainbow sprinkled cookie was a simple icing and sprinkle cookie and the one with red sprinkles had a sweet strawberry flavor to it.
The cookies were very soft and melt in your mouth so I am sure the kids loved them.

Duncan Hines Cookies

These chocolate fudge cookies were made out of Duncan Hines cake mix. There was a recipe on the side of the cake mix box for cookies so I decided to try it. I didn't quite follow the same recipe as I kept it very simple. I am sure you can use any box of cake mix and turn them into cake mix cookies.

I poured the package of Duncan Hines Chocolate Fudge cake mix into a mixing bowl, added 2 eggs and a 1/2 cup of oil. Then I mixed it all together and dropped the batter by tablespoonful onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake on 375 for 10-12 minutes.

I sprinkled coconut flakes onto half of them before baking just to add a different look to the plate of cookies. You can also add nuts, chocolate chips or anything else you usually add to cookies.

I placed a few lemon shortbread cookies onto the plate of cookies as well in order to add some contrast. These chocolate cake mix cookies tasted delicous and I would love to try making chocolate chip cookies using vanilla cake mix.
