Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 3.4 oz box chocolate fudge or chocolate instant pudding mix
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 11.5-oz package chocolate chunks

Instructions

  • Using an electric mixer cream together the butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and vanilla. Beat for 2 minutes until fluffy and light beige in color.
  • Add the eggs one at a time beating well after each addition. Stop and scrape the side of the bowl as needed.
  • In a medium-size mixing bowl sift together the flour, pudding mix, cocoa powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Lower the speed of the mixer and gradually add the dry ingredients to the creamed butter. Once all is added beat for 30 seconds or until fully incorporated.
  • Fold in the chocolate chunks by hand until evenly distributed in the dough.
  • Place into an airtight container and chill for 2 hours or overnight.
  • To bake preheat the oven to 375°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment. Roll the cookie dough in 1 1/2-inch balls and arrange on the baking sheet leaving at least 2-inches between each dough round. Using the palm of your hand flatten the centers.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes. Cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes then remove to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  • Store tightly sealed at room temperature.
