I am actually too lazy and busy to make cookies from scratch, so here is my super simply recipe. Husband loves these cookies. You can mix practically ANYTHING into them and it will taste good.
1 box Devil's food cake mix
1/2 cup butter or shortening (shortening works better, I think. If you use butter, chill the dough for an hour before baking)
Optional: splash of Mexican vanilla (You can get Molina brand at Walmart now, and it is just as good as the fancy brands. When I was growing up we actually had to go to Nogales, Mexico to get Molina vanilla!)
...and that's it. Bake 350 for 8 minutes blah blah blah...
I tried making these cookies with Cadbury mini eggs, Reese's pieces eggs, and Whopper mini Robins' eggs. They are all delicious options. Husband liked the Reese's eggs best.
To me, these look like Easter Bunny poops. I told Husband they are called 'Bunny Turds.' He thought that was funny. If you don't say 'poop' or 'turd' in your house you could call it "Bunny Scat.'
Anyway, here is the link to the original, more complicated recipe:
