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!
M&M Chocolate Pudding Cookies
Yield: about 50-60 cookies
¾ cup butter, softened
½ cup creamy peanut butter
½ cup sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
¼ cup cocoa powder
2¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 box (3.4 oz.) instant chocolate pudding
1 cup chocolate chips
1½-2 cups mini M&M’s candy
In a medium bowl, cream the butter, peanut butter, sugar and brown sugar with an electric mixer until thoroughly combined. Add the eggs and vanilla. Mix well.
In a separate medium bowl, combine the cocoa powder, flour, baking soda, salt and instant pudding. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the creamed mixture, mixing well. Stir in the M&M’s. Cover the bowl with saran wrap and chill for at least 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Roll the dough into 1-inch balls. Bake for 8 minutes. Allow to cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet before removing to cooling rack to cool completely. Store in a covered container.
I hope you enjoy! Shared at these
