Easy Cake Mix Cool Whip Christmas Cookies

Cake mix cool whip candy cane cookies.

I’m totally addicted to cake mix cool whip cookies and I make them all the time. So I don’t know why these didn’t immediately come to mind when I started thinking about pulling together 10 dozen cookies for our Christmas Cookie Exchange party. Maybe I was trying too hard or something because these are ridiculously easy.

I ran a batch through ahead of time in the interest of eating cookies for lunch and making sure they were actually as tasty and festive in real life as they were in my head. Oh. My. Stars. Someone get me some insulin! These are the bomb!!
