Lemon White Chocolate M&M Cookies

Something that I really love about being a blogger is getting to be a part of a close-knit blogger community. It sounds strange that we can use the words “close-knit” and “community” to describe a group of people who live far from each other, have oftentimes never met even once in person, and seemingly only have their “online lives” in common with each other. And it is a little bit of a strange concept. But it’s true.

I’ve been lucky enough to personally meet many of the ladies I know through blogging, and in almost every instance, I felt like we had been best friends for ages!

Today many of my wonderful blogging friends and I are celebrating a very special blogger: Lisa from Wine and Glue! Today is her virtual baby shower, and we are all gushing with excitement for the sweet mama-to-be! Lisa is simply amazing, and I cannot wait for her to welcome her newest little girl into the world.

If I could throw Lisa a real-life baby shower today, these Lemon White Chocolate M&M Cookies would definitely be on the desserts table. They’re SO easy to make, beautifully pastel, and taste delicious– perfect for welcoming a spring-time baby!

    I made these with the lemon cake mix, and I also tried the same recipe with coconut cake mix. Both delicious, but I am really in love with the coconut flavor with the white chocolate!
