    Heat oven to 350°F (325°F for dark or nonstick pans). In large bowl, mix cake mix, oil and eggs until soft dough forms.
  • 2
    Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place balls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 3
    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until set. Cool 5 minutes; remove from cookie sheets to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 30 minutes.
  • 4
    Divide frosting into 3 small bowls. Tint frosting as desired with food colors. Place frosting in small resealable food-storage plastic bags or disposable decorating bags. Cut off tip of each bag to make 1/4-inch opening.
  • 5
    Pipe 1-inch circle of frosting on top center of each cookie. Sprinkle frosting with candy sprinkles. Press 1 milk chocolate candy into frosting on each cookie. Store cookies tightly covered.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    For easy cleanup, before placing cookie dough balls on cookie sheets, line sheets with cooking parchment paper.
  • tip 2
    For more wacky fun, host a Halloween party, and let guests decorate their own cookies. Bake the cookies ahead, then put out the cookies, sprinkles, candy and colored frosting, and let your guests create!
