Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium bowl, cream together 1 box of dry cake mix, ½ cup vegetable oil, two eggs, and blue food coloring until smooth. 

In a separate bowl, cream together remaining ingredients to make green dough. 

Pull a few small pieces from each color of dough and roll them into a ball with your hands, about two tablespoons. (If dough is too sticky to work with, refrigerate it for 20 to 30 minutes.)

Place balls on the parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 9 to 11 minutes, until set. Let cookies stand on the cookie sheet 2 minutes before removing to cool on a wire rack.
