Lazy Day Cookies

I was having one of "those" weeks.  You probably are familiar with them.  The weeks where every night you have 3 different practices, games, or meetings to attend in different towns. . .

I was exhausted, but that didn't stop the children from wanting snacks and dinner.  I opted to whip up "lazy" cookies for a treat for the frazzled crew.  Everyone needed something sweet-  especially after the week we have had.

I made simple cake mix cookies and frosted them with purchased Halloween frosting!  These cookies are perfect for hectic schedules or Autumn parties and can be baked in a flash.  Simple and fast is good!

I told you I was lazy...

To make these simple treats, you will need:

  • box of cake mix (I used yellow and chocolate)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of oil
  • nuts, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, etc.  (Get creative!)
  • frosting
  • sprinkles

Here is how you make these sweet treats:

  • Combine the cake mix, eggs, oil, and additional nuts.
  • Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 12-15 minutes.
  • Cool cookies.
  • Frost and add sprinkles.
  • Serve!  People won't know how easy these babies were to make! 

What treats are you making to celebrate the harvest season?
