Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

November 19, 2013Teresa

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies are superb tasting cookies! And why not? It’s based on my Luscious No-Bake Chocolate Bars or Nanaimo Bars as our Canadian friends refer to them. These cookies actually started out as my Luscious No-Bake Chocolate Bars recipe. and Then I realized I’d made a mistake by using the whole package of vanilla pudding mix instead of just two tablespoons! I hated to throw out all that scrumptious buttercream icing. So I added most of the ingredients from the chocolate bars and made these amazing cookies instead!

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies are made with chocolate chips, coconut, pecans, graham cracker crumbs. They also include buttercream frosting, a package of French vanilla pudding mix, and flour mixed in. I baked these cookies 4 minutes and then pulled them out of the oven and pressed down with a fork in criss-cross fashion before baking them a final 4 minutes. That allowed the chocolate to achieve the more gooey appearance, since pressing the fork tines into the warm chocolate redistributed and swirled the chocolate a little bit.

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies are a wonderful confection that would be great to bring along to Christmas Cookie exchanges or other Christmas and year-end parties. They have great texture, crunch, flavor, and a nice gooeyness with the partially melted chocolate. If you’re looking for a great cookie for holiday baking than consider these tasty treats. They’re not overly difficult to make either. You’re family will be so pleased sinking their teeth into these fantastic cookies, and your company will make sure you don’t have any leftovers!

Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies are partially baked then the cookie pressed down with a fork in a criss-cross fashion. That’s what gives the chocolate a swirling pattern.
