These cookies are super easy and intensely chocolate-y. With a generous amount of chocolate fudge pudding mix incorporated into the dough, they bake up with an incredibly soft texture and stay that way.
Double Chocolate Pudding Cookies
2 1/4 c. flour
3 oz. instant chocolate fudge pudding mix
1 tsp. baking soda
1 cup butter, softened
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1-2 cups chocolate chips
Whisk together flour, pudding mix, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. Beat butter & sugars together until fluffy. Add vanilla & eggs and beat until well-combined. On low speed, mix in flour mixture until just incorporated. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by tablespoonful onto baking sheets and bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Don't overbake these! I usually bake them for 8 minutes, and allow them to sit on the baking sheets out of the oven for 2-3 minutes to set up a bit before transferring them to racks to cool. Store carefully, as they will remain very soft.
