But you’re here for the recipe, right? Here it is!
- 1 box white cake mix
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon vanilla
- ½ cup vegetable oil
- 2 eggs
- Green food coloring
- ½ cup white chocolate chips
- Betty Crocker white cookie icing

- In a large mixing bowl, add the dry cake mix, baking powder, eggs, vegetable oil, vanilla and 2 drops of green food coloring.
- Mix on medium speed until all of the ingredients are well incorporated. The batter will be thick and light green in color.
- Fold in the white chocolate chips.
- Using a one Tablespoon cookie scoop, drop the cookie dough balls onto the parchment lined cookie sheet.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes exactly. Do not over-bake.
- Once removed from the oven, keep the cookies on the cookie sheet for 10 minutes to cool.
- Transfer to a wire rack to complete the cooling process.
- Once the cookies are completely cooled, ice the middle of each cookie. Sprinkle a few Lucky Charms marshmallows on top before the icing sets.
