Easy Holiday Cookies

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by nranger7

From a box of Land O Lakes butter. Sounds good and definitely easy. Pretty flexible too. It says you can substitute creme de menthe baking chips, nuts or chopped dried fruit for the M&Ms if desired. I normally don't have yellow cake mix on hand so I have yet to try these.
