M&M Chocolate Pudding Cookies

I have a confession - I hate making cookies. There, now I've said it and you know. Don't get me wrong, I like to eat cookies ... just not make them! I usually delegate cookie-making to my kiddos - who are usually more than enthusiastic with the task!

One of my current favorite cookies is the pudding cookie! OMGosh - you can make them in any pudding flavor and throw in whatever kind of yummies you like - and you have a brand new cookie! And, they're easy ..... and SOFT! I personally prefer a softer cookie. :)  

I like to use a cookie scoop to make my cookies all the same size .... but if you don't have a cookie scoop - your tablespoon measuring spoon is a good substitute to get uniform sized cookies!

I think the little M&M's are so cute and I thought it would be fun to make some cookies with them. We loved them and I hope your family does as well!

  10. I keep seeing these pudding cookies and have yet to try them. I love baking cookies, just because I think they're pretty basic, and make a lot....what I hate is the cleanup. All those cookie sheets tend to sit on my counter until I absolutely have to clean them.
    Thanks for sharing!

  14. Funny! I don't mind making cookies. For me, it's cake. I despise making cakes. Probably because my oven isn't level and I end up with something like the leaning tower of Pisa.

    These look good! Thanks for linking.

  17. Curious what would happen if I omit the peanut butter. I have a severe nut allergy and peanut butter doesn't work. Thoughts?

    1. I'm not really sure. I think you could try playing around with the butter ratio ... or maybe even trying a nut-free peanut butter like NoNuts, SunButter or Wowbutter? If you try it without peanut butter and/or with any substitutions, I would love to know how it went :)
