Mint Chocolate Fudge Pudding Cookies

Mint Chocolate Fudge Pudding Cookies 7

Christmas totally snuck up on this year. However, we could not let it totally slip by without posting a cookie recipe. Kelly introduced me to mint M&M’s awhile back and they have been my go to M&M ever since. It used to be the pretzel M&M’s but no longer. I have been pretty obsessed with mint and peppermint lately. So good! Unfortunately I ran out of baking time to make all the mint/peppermint recipes I’d like. There is never enough time to make all of the cookies I’d like though. Not to mention barks, bar cookies, fudge. I could go on and on. But seriously, never enough time!

We tried a few new cookie recipes this year and this was one of my favorites. I just love M&M cookies. They are tasty and I love how colorful the M&M’s are. I decided to make a pudding cookie so these cookies are quite cakey. Definitely not chewy or crispy. But they are chocolatey. And minty! The mint M&M’s worked perfectly in these cookies. I think every cookie tray needs a mint or peppermint recipe. If you are still looking for one, here you go!

Here is what you’ll need

Cream the butter and sugar and add the pudding mix

Add the egg

And the vanilla

Mix the dry ingredients and add those too

Place on a baking sheet and bake

Love Christmas Cookies!
