M & M Pudding Cookies

I’m constantly on the search for a delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe.  I usually like most of them when the cookies are right out of the oven but the true test is the next day… or even 2 days later.  Are they chewy and moist or did they get stale tasting?

I love these cookies!!!  Yes, I want to marry them.  They are that good.
M & M Pudding Cookies
* 2 cups butter, softened
* 1 1/2 cups packed brown sugar
* 1/2 cup sugar
* 2 (3.4 ounce) instant vanilla pudding mix
* 4 eggs
* 2 tsps. vanilla
* 4 3/4 cup flour
* 2 tsps. backing soda
* 4 cups M & Ms (or chocolate chips)
What makes this cookie recipe different from the rest?  Instant pudding mix!  How cool is this?!?!


In a stand mixer beat butter and sugars until fluffy.  Add vanilla pudding mix and stir well.  Add eggs and vanilla.  Add flour and backing soda until combined.


A good helper is essential when it comes to baking =o)

We used spring time M & Ms because I had a big bag of them left over from Easter.  But they are spring-y looking right?  They don’t have to be just for Easter.


Stir in M & Ms (or chocolate chips).
We used our medium sized Pampered Chef scoop (which makes the perfect sized cookie!)  Put on a Silpat or cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.  I always have a great helper to assist me in the kitchen.  She informed me that it was “take your daughter to work day” so she brought over her baby doll so she could help.  =o)   (Thank you Tiffanee over at One Crazy Cookie for the Heart for Heart Doll I won on her giveaway!  Ellie loves her!)


Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes.  Don’t over cook.


These are chewy and delicious and truly amazing cookies!  This is now my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe and I will be making these again and again!  YUM!
