READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by LAURIE

You can do anything with these cookies and they are still great! Use any combo of cake mix and pudding that your heart desires and they are so simple that the kids can mix them up!

These went quickly at work. I used Orange Supreme cake mix, French Vanilla pudding and mini-M&Ms. Mine also took 15 minutes to bake. (After looking at the time summary above, I think maybe the 5 minutes listed in the directions could be a typo.) This is a possibility for Christmas present bundles. Thanks Laurie!
