Sometimes all you need is a cookie. A festive, gooey cookie. They always make everything better.
Make these cookies just for the heck of it or for a child’s party. No matter the occasion these fun fetti cookies will not let you down. They are gorgeous and taste incredible.
Every Christmas my sister makes these but she uses chocolate cake mix. All year long leading up to Christmas Jonathan whines, “Why can you not make those cookies your sister makes?? Whyyyy..” Most of the time I don’t reply…secretly knowing I cannot make these all year round because he tends to eat the whole batch by himself. No lie. He devours them.
I don’t blame him. They are that amazing.
