While all the other schools in Toronto are going on March break today, I am returning to school from our March break and starting a new semester.
I can’t really say I’m jealous because I just had an entire week off as well, but during long breaks I feel so unproductive. Maybe it’s the fact that I sleep in way past my usual 6 AM start, or the fact that I have spent entire days in my pajamas that week. Whatever it is, I am ready for the new semester to begin.
And with each new beginning comes a new batch of cookies I will try to bribe my new students with to like me. Or, you know. Welcome them back to school. Whichever sounds less manipulative.
And who can say no to a chocolate cookie with white chocolate bursting from the inside? I certainly can’t. Which is why the drive to school may be a little difficult for me. There might not be any left for the students.
Let’s talk about why these cookies are great. One: they can use any extra instant pudding mix you might have in your cupboard (me always). Two: they are stupid easy to make. And three: they are delicious! Crisp outer shell with a chewy centre, and packed with white chocolate chips inside. It is every chocolate lover’s dream!
I think I will need to make a second batch entirely for me to eat. I just can’t get enough!
These chocolate pudding white chocolate chip cookies are so quick and easy to make. My new go-to chocolate cookie!
- 3/4 cup salted butter, softened
- 1/4 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 3 Tbsp instant chocolate pudding mix
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 cup white chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mat.
Beat together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add in the egg and vanilla until fully combined.
In a small bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa, chocolate pudding mix, salt and baking soda.
Slowly mix in the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients until fully incorporated. Fold in the white chocolate chips.
Scoop the cookie dough on the prepared baking sheets, and bake for 8-10 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking sheets for around 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
