Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies are super soft and chewy and loaded with tons of chocolate chips, because isn’t the batter just there to hold the chocolate chips together?
They really are the easiest cookies to make and they bake up perfectly every time.
These cookies stay soft and chewy for a long time, but chances are they will get eaten up so fast, you won’t find out just how long.
Vanilla Pudding Mix
I’ve used vanilla pudding mix and milk chocolate chips but you can get creative and change up the flavor of the pudding mix and chips.
Try butterscotch pudding mix and butterscotch morsels for a double delicious dose of butterscotch.
Oreo pudding mix would also be a fun one to try with crushed oreo cookies added to the batter instead of chocolate chips. I’ve been wanting to try banana cream pudding mix with white chocolate chips.
These Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies taste almost as good at room temperature as they do warm from the oven. Pour yourself a glass of cold milk and add some sweetness to your day with these cookies!
Cookies can be kept in an airtight container at room temperature for 4 to 5 days.
- Electric Mixer– either a stand mixer or handheld mixer will work.
- Baking sheets– I love these rimmed baking sheets for baking cookies. They are also great for roasting vegetables.
- Wire Rack
