Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

It’s no secret that we love cookies in this house, and I’m always looking to try new cookie recipes. I saw these chocolate chip pudding cookies on Pinterest, and they looked so gooey and wonderful that I just had to make them. They are similar to my beloved bugs bunny bars (If you haven’t tried those yet, you need to!), and they stay super soft for days. The vanilla pudding mix in the batter is the secret ingredient that really makes these cookies stand out – it gives them a great texture and a little added boost of flavor. You can never have too many chocolate chip cookie recipes, and this is a good one!

    I made these today and they are delicious! I’ve made pudding chocolate chip cookies in the past and they weren’t that great, so I was hesitant to try this recipe, but these are really good! I’ve made many recipes from your site and everything I have made has been delicious!

    Just made these with my grandkids. Three comments from three kids: “I need another one”, “they are amazing”, and “delicious”. Incredible melt in your mouth chocolate chip cookie, warm out of the oven with a tall glass of milk! Fun memories with grandma! Thanks for the great recipe.

    My husbabd told me that he believes these are the best cookies I’ve made yet! He ate at least 8, maybe 9, right after I took them out of the oven! LOL! I used Ghiradelli milk chocolate chips. Thanks for the recipe!

    Do you need to grease the cookie sheet? Can’t wait to make these tonight!

      I don’t think so. I always line my cookie sheets with parchment paper or a silicon liner, but you should be fine without. Hope you like them!!
