Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

A couple weeks ago I threw together some baked goods in a basket for my cousin's benefit. I knew I wasn't going to be able to go since I was a bride's maid in my best friend's wedding. The least I could do is donate something tasty to get people buying tickets for the auction. I wanted something easy, but so incredibly tasty. That's how these chocolate chip pudding cookies happened.

I actually found this recipe on Cookies & Cups. I did spruce mine up with french vanilla pudding, chocolate chunks, and fall sprinkles. The left overs that didn't make it into the boxes to go to the benefit were also a big hit with the family. That pudding does wonders.

The cookies are soft, chewy, and 100% gone. It seems like as soon as I start to actually write my posts for my recipes, I immediately miss the cookies. I just want one more to have and to hold.. and devour. I would even probably take a half kid-handled one that's been horrible mangled. Who am I kidding.. I would definitely take it! In. a. heartbeat.

Here's a fun fact! I strongly dislike milk.. borderline hate unless it has chocolate in it. However, if I'm going to have a stack of Oreo cookies, they will be accompanied with a glass of milk for dunking. Hard cookies ALWAYS get dunked in coffee or milk.

Are you a dunker?

  • ¾ cup salted butter room temperature
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 3.4 oz. box instant french vanilla pudding
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ¾ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 ½ cups semi-sweet chocolate chunks


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a mixing bowl, add in the butter and brown sugar. Mix on medium until light and fluffy. Scrape down the sides.
  • Add in the egg and vanilla and mix on medium until combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Add in the pudding, flour, and baking soda. Mix on low until just combined.
  • Stir in the chocolate chunks with a spatula.
  • Using a cookie scoop, scoop out cookie dough onto a baking sheet. Space about 2 inches apart on the cookie sheet.
  • Place in the oven for about 8-9 minutes or until the edges are golden brown. My cookie scoop is quite small so it took a shorter amount of time than it would if you make huge cookies.
  • Let cool for 5 - 10 minutes on the baking sheet and then place onto a cooling rack.
  • Store in an airtight container.
