Talk about festive! These cookies are the perfect sweet treat for your 4th of July party!
I used my Kitchen Aid Mixer for this recipe because it made the mixing so much easier. In a bowl add- yellow cake mix, 8 tbsp. melted butter, 1 tsp. vanilla extract, 4 oz of cream cheese softened, and 1 egg. Mix it all together until you have a soft dough.
Then, using a spoon, mix in Oreo cookie chunks (about 14 crushed into chunks), 1/2 cup of red, white, blue M&M’s and 1/4 cup of red, white, blue sprinkles.
Refrigerate the dough for 30 minutes to an hour. When almost ready to take out, preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Grab a cookie sheet and roll the dough into even dough balls. My batch made about 30 cookies. Add extra sprinkles and M&M’s to the tops of the the dough balls, if desired.
Place the dough balls on the cookie sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool on the cookie sheets for 2 minutes, before moving them to a piece of parchment paper. YUM!!!!!
