These are easy to make and the fun color of these are a hit with kids. You’re guaranteed to end up with moist cookies every time. But they do taste a little bit like cake mix, since they are made with cake mix! So, if you secretly enjoy licking the whisk after mixing together cake batter, you’ll love these.
