Because my husband and I work with college students, I am always looking for dessert recipes that can feed a crowd and are SUPER easy to throw together on a whim! I also cannot stand doing dishes so add to my wish list a one-bowl recipe – and I’m one happy gal. I found this recipe through Parent Pretty and decided to make a few changes to make them more my own. I substituted coconut oil for vegetable oil and only used mini M&Ms – I’m one of those folks that doesn’t like my cookies super chocolatey. Crazy, I know. When I drive through Chick-Fil-A to order a diet coke and chocolate chip cookie (Oh you must try!) it goes something like this: “Hi, can I have a medium diet coke and cookie not heated.” (b/c when they’re heated they are way too chocolatey and it oozes everywhere as opposed to an unheated cookie that has nice solid chocolate chunks – anybody with me?) And without fail I get this response, “So I have a medium diet coke and a non-heated cookie?” (with a bewildering tone).
Oh and HAPPY HALLOWEEN to all:)
1 box yellow cake box mix
1 box vanilla pudding
2 eggs (lightly beaten)
1/4 c water
3/4 c coconut oil (I use Trader Joe’s – cheaper than any other) (you can use vegetable oil if you don’t have coconut oil)
3/4 c mini M&Ms + Handful of mini M&Ms
Preheat oven to 350. Grease 10×13 pan. Combine all ingredients in a one bowl and pour into pan and sprinkle an extra handful of M&Ms over top of batter. Bake for 25 minutes or until fork comes out clean. Allow to cool before serving. I thought they were even better the second day!
