Chocolate Chip & M&M Pudding Cookies

So we may have bought just a bit too much candy on our Hershey Park trip (oops!).

I’ve always loved the softness of pudding cookies, so the addition of chocolate chips and mini M&M’s make them extra special!

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 package vanilla instant pudding mix (3.4oz)

2 large eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

1 cup mini M&M’s

Directions:

1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray baking sheet with non-stick spray.

2 Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

3 Using a stand or an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar on high speed until light and creamy, at least 4 minutes. Once combined, add the pudding mix, vanilla and eggs, one at a time, and beat on high for 2-3 minutes.

4 Turn the mixer to low and slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Turn the mixer up to high and mix until combined. Add chocolate chips and M&M’s and stir until incorporated.

5 Drop cookies by 1/4 cup onto the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes, or until golden. Allow to cool on baking sheet for a minute and then transfer to a baking rack to cool completely.
