Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies – the softest cookies ever! Classic chocolate chip cookies made with pudding mix to keep them chewy and soft.
Before we get to these cookies, can we talk Real Housewives? Y’all know I have always been a Real Housewives fan. Since the first season of Orange County which was, what? 8 years ago? Yeah, I’m a big fan.
But I am so disappointed with every city these days. It seems like the longer someone is on a show, the more crap they have to promote. I swear New Jersey is 100% promotions these days. Bakeries, books, music, strange bottles of black water…? I mean, we haven’t seen a good ham game played in years. And no one’s been called a “prostitution whoraaa” in a way too long. I just want to go back to the good ol’ days – is that too much to ask?
I’ve seen cookies made with pudding mix around the interwebs for years now but I never have pudding in the house and I don’t ever plan to make cookies when I’m working on my grocery list.
But I somehow ended up with pudding in my pantry this week and new it was time to finally try these cookies.
They’re so good! They don’t really taste different from a normal chocolate chip cookie but they are super soft, just how I like my cookies. I’m really happy that I finally got around to trying them and hopefully I remember to stock up on pudding so I can try different versions. Definitely make these if you’re a fan of soft cookies!

Can You Freeze Pudding Cookies?
Yes, you can freeze these cookies! Make sure they are completely cooled and then put them in an airtight container (I like using freezer ziploc bags – squeeze all the air out!) and freeze for up to 3 months.
