These hodgepodge cookies will definitely brighten up your day. They are a twist on my favorite box mix cake, Pillsbury’s Funfetti. What’s not to enjoy about a cakey cookie that blends together everyone’s favorite snack foods, from pretzels to Oreo’s to M&M’s? They’re delicious all year round, but are especially fun when made holiday themed with Christmas colored candies. As you take a bite into this chewy, sugary delight, your tongue is sure to encounter an array of mouth-watering flavors. Although you may have to splurge on the calories for this one, your stomach and heart will end up thanking you for this delicious treat.
