If there's one thing that my kids can't get enough of, it's cookies.
Crunchy cookies have been growing on me, but my kids will take a nice, soft cookie any day.
These chocolate chocolate chip pudding cookies are just the sort of soft cookies that they love. Not only are they soft, but they actually stay soft.
So, they're perfect for lunch boxes, pot lucks, or any other time when you need to make cookies ahead of time and still have them taste great later on.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies
- 2 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter softened
- 1 1/4 cups brown sugar packed
- 3.4 ounce package instant chocolate pudding mix
- 2 large eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
- 1 ½ cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
Sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt; set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar.
Beat in the instant pudding mix until blended.
Stir in the eggs and vanilla.
Blend in the flour mixture until just combined.
Stir in the chocolate chips.
Drop cookies by 1.5 tablespoons onto prepared baking sheets.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until edges are set and centers are still soft.
*Be sure to sift or fluff your flour prior to measuring to avoid getting too much flour in the dough. Too much flour will make for a hard, dry cookie.
**Also, the cookies should look soft and slightly underdone when you take them out. This helps to keep the cookies soft.
