Chocolate peanut butter pudding cookies

2013 March 8
by Emily Hill

One of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes uses vanilla pudding mix as an ingredient. It makes the chocolate chip cookies extra soft and chewy, and I swear they stay fresh longer. The recipe is a great starting point for baking a variety of cookies—you can use butterscotch chips instead of semisweet or a butterscotch pudding mix and white chocolate chips. Being the Reese’s lover that I am, we took that recipe and made what quickly became my downfall chocolate peanut butter pudding cookies.

I swear chocolate and peanut butter were created on the 8th day.

These chocolate peanut butter pudding cookies were gone in record time. I managed to put away at least a half dozen from the first batch because I’m helpful like that.

    Buy extra pudding (in vanilla and chocolate) and extra chips (in chocolate and peanut butter and even butterscotch if you like them) so you can make them later on too. I always stock up on those two things!
