M&M Funfetti Cookie Gift Jar

M&M’s and cookies most definitely go hand in hand. This is especially true for cake mix cookies. These M&M Funfetti Cookies are super easy to create and take literally minutes to mix and bake. I also love that they taste like Lofthouse with the added bonus of one of our favorite chocolate candies, M&M’s. All it takes is a box of Funfetti cake mix in a mason jar, topped with mini M&M’s to create a unique homemade gift perfect for Easter gift giving.
