Candy Apple M&M Cookies

I was planning to make some cookies for a fall-themed baby shower this weekend, so when I saw some Candy Apple Flavored M&M's, I knew I wanted to try them out in a cookie.

Here's the recipe (adapted from this recipe):

Candy Apple M&M Cookies (Yield:  approximately 20-24 cookies)

1 16.5 ounce box yellow cake mix
2 eggs
5 tablespoons butter, melted
1 cup butterscotch chips
1 bag Candy Apple M&M's

Beat cake mix, eggs, and butter until blended.  Add butterscotch chips and M&M's.  Refrigerate overnight.  Meanwhile, place remaining M&M's in freezer if you are going to do the optional step below.  Drop by two tablespoon-sized balls on parchment-lined baking sheet.  Bake at 350 degrees for 12-14 minutes.  Let sit on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

Optional:  After the cookies have been baking for 8 minutes, remove from oven and press 2-3 M&M's on top.  This is strictly for presentation purposes!  You have to press them in fairly well so that the large M&Ms will stay.  Return cookies to the oven until they are done.

Note:  You can use any flavor cake mix and any flavor chips that you like with this recipe!
