How to Make the BEST Chocolate Chunk Pudding Cookies Recipe

  • Ingredients you’ll need to make homemade Chocolate Chunk Pudding Cookies: All purpose flour, instant chocolate fudge pudding mix, cocoa powder, semi sweet chocolate chunks, butter, light brown sugar, granulated sugar, vanilla, large eggs, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Kitchen tools you’ll need: Large bowl, medium bowl, hand mixer or stand mixer, measuring cups and spoons and sheet pans.
  • Chilling cookie dough will prevent the cookies from becoming too flat. It gives the butter in the dough a change to firm. You can bake these cookies immediately but they will be flatter.
  • You can use semi sweet chocolate chips in place of chocolate chunks, if desired.
  • Freshly made cookie dough is incredibly forgiving and can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week. When chilled firm give it some time on the counter to make it more easy to scoop.
  • You can also freeze cookie dough for up to 3 months.
  • Store baked Chocolate Chunk Pudding Cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

    Yes! yes ! These are supper Good ! I have made many times . But I only let them sit in icebox for 1 hour. But everyone Love these.

  2. Help ! I made the cookie batter & left it over night just pulled it out but it’s so hard can’t get anything yet ! How long do I leave it ? If it takes 30 minutes to soften is that ok ?.?

  3. Thanks so much for your reply! I’ll give this a try. This is my son’s favorite cookie and I wanted to put in some red food coloring for Chinese New Year!

    1. Hi Carol, while I haven’t tested adding additional liquid, you may be able to tint the dough using a red gel coloring. This would tint the cookie dough without adding liquid to change the texture.

  4. Which size cookie scoop would give the same size cookies? I have the 1,2 & 3 tbsp size cookie scoops.

  5. This recipe calls for one “3/4- oz box chocolate fudge or chocolate instant pudding mix.” Should that be a 3.9-oz box of instant pudding mix? That is the smallest box available that I have found.
