These simple cool whip cookies (also called cake mix cookies) only require 4 ingredients, no dough chilling, and are easy to customize with your favorite candy.
‣ 1/3 cup powdered sugar ‣ 16.25 ounce white cake mix, (1 box) or any flavor you'd like ‣ 1 large egg ‣ 2 1/2 cup Cool Whip ‣ 1 cup M&M’s, divided
Using a stand mixer (or hand mixer + large bowl), toss in the cake mix, egg, and cool whip, then mix until a thick batter forms.
If you’re using candy, remove the bowl from your mixer and add them to the bowl. Use a spatula to gently fold the candy in.
Using a cookie scoop, scoop out some dough, roll it into a ball.
Cover the cookie balls in powdered sugar. Place the cookie balls on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper. For a festive look, you can press some candy into the tops of the cookie balls. Once done, bake!
