Christmas Treats Recipe Challenge Blog Hop -Chocolate Peppermint Cookies w. Yellow Cake Mix


Welcome to this year's Holiday Blog Hop,
 Christmas Treats Recipe Challenge. 
Below are a variety of recipes from my fellow bloggers, perfect for your Christmas  table. Be sure to pop over and see the great ideas they are sharing.


Last month I followed a recipe for Apple Cider Donut  Cake that included using yellow box cake mix. Since I am always trying to use less premade store bought items, I decided to whip up a few mason jars of yellow cake mix for the holiday season. I looked around Pinterest and found a bunch of recipes for cakes and cookies using this simple yellow cake mix. Now, I have half my homemade recipe ready to go by grabbing one of my pretty mason jars. I went on to make a Rose Cake that would wow anyone. 
Today, I will be giving you a recipes for two types of cookies and the recipe to make your own yellow cake mix to store .

  5. I really like the idea of making up my own cake mix as that would be such a time saver! I used to make cookies from a boxed cake mix all the time but I too have been trying to get away from buying processed foods whenever I can. Thanks for the idea and these recipes. Pinned.
