Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

Hey everyone! Sam here again from Sugar Spun Run, and today I’m so excited to share my new favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe with you! Some of my favorite cookie recipes are made with JELLO, which is a critical ingredient in making chocolate chip pudding cookies.

How to Make Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies?

  • Preheat oven to 350F and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Place butter and sugars in a large bowl (or in the bowl of a stand mixer and use an electric mixer to beat butter and sugars together until well-combined.
  • Stir in dry pudding mix and beat well.
  • Add vanilla extract and eggs, stir well to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Gradually stir dry ingredients into wet ingredients until completely combined.
  • Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Scoop cookie dough into approximately 2 Tablespoon-sized balls and gently roll between your palms to form a round ball. Place cookie dough on prepared baking sheet, spacing cookies at least 2” apart.
  • Bake at 350F for 10-12 minutes (the centers will still seem very soft, this is fine, they will continue to cook and firm up as they cool).
  • Allow cookies to cool completely on baking sheet before removing and enjoying.

What Kind of Pudding Can I Use to Make Pudding Cookies?

To make these cookies we’re going to be using instant pudding mix — just the mix. You definitely don’t want to make the pudding, we’re just throwing the dry mix into the batter. Use “Instant” pudding and not the kind that needs to be cooked on the stovetop (again, we’re not actually preparing the pudding, but the mixes are different and you want to use the right mix!).

      1. These turned out good. I used chocolate pudding cuz it was all I had on hand. So it was basically a chocolate chocolate chip cookie. I added chopped nuts too just cuz I had some to get rid of. I used a cookie scoop but the recipe calls for a 2 inch size ball of dough? I think I should have doubled up the cookie scoop I used and maybe the cookie would have flattened out more. As it was they were pretty small and thick, no spread. But still good. I think this would be a good base recipe I will probably try again but with vanilla pudding butterscotch chips and maybe some kind of nut like macadamia. Just cuz I have some baking bits and items I need to try to use up.

    1. I was able to add the calories onto the recipe for you. Hope that helps! I am in the process of adding nutritional information to each recipe. Thanks for following along with me!
