Chocolate Pudding White Chocolate Chip Cookies

These cookies are made with instant chocolate pudding mix and white chocolate chips. My new go-to chocolate cookie!

Chocolate Pudding White Chocolate Chip Cookies

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!

  1. I love using pudding mix in my cookies, too! It's my secret little ingredient that takes cookies to a whole new level. Chocolate anything is good in my book, and I will gladly take a couple of these chocolate cookies to start the day. Good luck getting back into the swing of things today! (I bet eating a cookie will help...just sayin')
