  • One 15.25-ounce box chocolate cake mix
  • 1/3 cup vegetable or canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup M&M's (plus more for the top)


  • In a large bowl, use an electric mixer to combine the cake mix, oil, eggs and vanilla until well-combined. Stir in 1 cup of the M&M's. Cover the bowl and chill for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silpat mats.

  • Bake for 9 to 11 minutes- just until set.


  • You can use regular sized M&M's or miniature M&M's.
