M&M Pudding Cookies

M&M pudding cookies 2

M&M cookies are my weakness. Not only do these cookies have M&M’s, they have chocolate chips too. These cookies also have a secret ingredient that make them moist and puffy. Who would have ever guessed it is instant vanilla pudding! It’s impossible to eat just one.


M&M Pudding Cookies

1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cup flour
3 tablespoons instant vanilla pudding mix
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips
1 1/4 cup mini M&M’s

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Then add flour, pudding mix, baking soda and salt. Stir well until combined. Then add chocolate chip and M&M’s.

Roll into 1 1/2 inch balls or use a medium cookie scoop. Bake 10-12 minutes until cooked through. Let cool on cookie sheet for about 10 minutes.

Makes about 24 cookies.

    The “print friendly” button is not working for me, just thought you might want to know.

    No one can resist a cookie when it has M&Ms in it. This is so promising. I haven’t really tried it yet but even from the looks, it can satisfy mouths and stomachs.

    I did everything it said and they turned out really flat and idk how to explain it but they just didn’t turn out well. Maybe I mixed them to much? Or maybe it’s cuz I’m a guy and my cookies never turn out well lol.

    These cookies are amazing! I just made a double-batch and made 7 containers (small and medium-sized cookies) to share with friends/family who are in town for our wedding this weekend. I admit I am baking tonight to keep myself distracted from my wedding excitement! :) This is definitely going on my favorite recipes list…thanks for sharing!

  7. Cheryl says

    Omg!!! I just tasted one from the first batch….fabulous! I am making these for my grand boys….I hope I have some left!!! You have a winner here!

    I just tried to make these but the dough came out just like a pile of powder. I followed the recipe exact. I added some milk to the mixture and put it in the fridge. I will see if it turns out okay tomorrow.

  9. ashley says

    Im confused on if i just use the dry mix of instant pudding or should I be making the pudding mix first? Bc i don’t see how the recipe would be gooey if the only wet ingredient is 1 egg?

      Just use the dry pudding mix, don’t make the pudding first. The softened butter adds moisture too. We love this cookie recipe!

  10. Jennifer says

    I followed the exact recipe and they turned out delicious. I did have to bake them around 15 minutes instead of 10-12 minutes.

  11. chris says

    Wondering if you could use chocolate instant pudding instead of the vanilla? That’s what I have on hand and was hoping not to have to run to the store.

    • Cyd says

      It would work but your cookies will have a brown color and a chocolate flavor from the pudding. But it will make them soft!
