Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies


This is the only treat my hubby ever asks me to make. I think he 's these cookies more than me. But I dont blame him. They are soft, chocolatey, vanilla-ee, deliciousness. My SIL Christine gave me this recipe about 5 years ago, and since then it's the only chocolate chip cookie recipe I have made. One of the tricks to these cookies is the baking time. You should ONLY bake them for 9-10 minutes, tops. They will seem like their not fully cooked, but they are. Trust me. Once you take them out of the oven, just leave them alone. No need to transfer them to a cooling rack. Let them just sit on the baking sheet to relax, and they'll be ready to pop in your mouth in about five to ten minutes. Grab a big glass of milk, and take a bite of that warm cookie. It will melt in your mouth! 



Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies
Yields 36 cookies


1 cup (2 sticks) Butter, softened
3/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup White Sugar
1 small pkg Instant Vanilla Pudding mix
2 eggs
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
2 1/4 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 pkg ( 12 oz) Milk Chocolate Chips


DIRECTIONS:  Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat the butter, both sugars, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla in a large bowl. Beat until creamy and fluffy. Then slowly mix in flour and baking soda. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by tablespoonfuls, onto an un-greased cookie sheet. Bake for ONLY 9-10 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool about 10 minutes before eating.

Pudding cookies really are awesome. My family devours them ridiculously fast.

Yum! I have a very similar recipe for chocolate chip cookies on my blog that uses pudding. It really does make the cookies extra soft and delicious.

Pudding cookies are a favorite in our house. Sometimes we make them with chopped up candy bars as well as chocolate chips.

It doesn't matter how many fancy cookies I make, pudding cookies tempt me like no other. We LOVE them too.

Barefeet In The Kitchen said...

Obviously, they tempt me, since I just realized I already commented on this post. Oops! I saw the pic and couldn't resist them again. Feel free to delete these extra comments or leave them to laugh at my chocolate addiction. Have a GREAT day!

I love your your recipes. You cook the way I like to eat. I have seen your recipes on tasty kitchen as well. I'm getting ready to make your mac & cheese recipe.

Sweet Bella Roos said...

I have to try these!! I have never thought to put pudding in cookies before. These cookies look exactly like I want them to taste.

The first time I tried these cookies, I didn't have vanilla pudding or choc. chips..but I did have butterscotch pudding and butterscotch chips so I used both of those and then crushed up a couple of Hersheys choc. bars and they were wonderful!! Then I bought the real ingredients and tried them yesterday. These cookies are wonderful!! Both times they have turned out so soft and just melt in your mouth! Thank you so much, I will never use another choc. chip cookie recipe again!! :-)

These tasted amazing! Thanks for posting this. They are so moist and lightly chewy. It going to be a part of my Xmas cookie boxes!

These cookies were not good. They don't look like the picture AT ALL. I followed the recipe exactly. They are sponge like and regular chocolate chip cookies are much better.

brennan said...

Do you think that the non-instant variety would work well with this recipe? I have a couple boxes of those (the kind that need to boiled on the stove for a little bit) and this recipe sounds awesome!

Thank you!

Has anyone tried freezing these yet?

KristaM said...

Made these for Christmas Goody Giving this year and will make them every year from now on. They were so yummy and delicious...I should've kept more for myself :)

Shared the recipe on my blog today!

Renee said...

I made these yesterday and they are almost gone already. Thanks for sharing they are awesome cookies

Shannon said...

Would using chocolate pudding instead of vanilla change them (as in ruin the flavor since there wouldn't be the "vanilla" flavor)?

Kelly Curtis said...

Cindy, you asked about freezing these...I have a very similar recipe that I found years ago on allrecipes.com. I make these both in cookie and bar form. They freeze very well. Most cookie doughs can be stored (frozen) for 3 months. At that point you bake them, they can be stored an additional 3 months.The exception is for meringue and macaroon cookies, which it is not advised for.

Jennifer said...

These are SO GOOD.

Melinda said...

LOVE these cookies!!

Tiago said...

I followed the recipe exactly and my cookies flattened out! Exactly what attracted me to your cookies because I really hoped for fluffy cookies. I also had to cook mine longer than 10 min because mine looked REALLY raw. No golden brown at all! What did I do wrong? The taste is awesome and they'll be gone before the night is over...I have 4 kids!! I really hoped for thicker cookies though.

Jennifer said...

Momma J- Make sure your baking soda is not old/expired. Also, make sure your butter is room temperature softened....not melted, or it will flatten the cookies.
Other than that, they should come out perfect. I make them once a week lately. I have 4 kids also!

I've been making these for years and have many, many fans of them, especially the hubby and son. I like to add a big spoon of peanut butter. I've also tried different flavors of instant pudding and chips, a favorite combo being chocolate pudding with peanut butter chips. Everyone who tastes them wants the recipe!
