Vanilla Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies

Here is another great recipe for my chocolate chip cookie obsession.  I absolutely love pudding cookies.   They make the moist, soft and flavorful cookie, hands down!   

I have always struggled to bake cookies for as long as I can remember.  I was one of those ladies that would buy the pre-made cookie dough and act as if I spend hours in the kitchen.  I personally blame  it on the altitude because they ALWAYS go flat and crispy.    But when I add the pudding packet they actually look and taste like a real cookie.  I have said it over and over again my love for pudding cookies!  They will honestly be the best cookie you ever experience!

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

I have mentioned before my love for pudding cookies!!  If you haven’t tried them yet then you need to jump on it.  For the life of me I have never been able to make a cookie.  Mine are always flat, crunchy and well look nothing like a cookie.

The thing about these cookies is the pumpkin spice pudding mix give your cookie a nice pumpkin flavor.  But if you want to make these cookies start looking for the pumpkin spice pudding mix now cause it is only out for a limited of time!  I was only able to find it at Walmart, then make sure to buy a few extra boxes!

Cookies & Cream Puppy Chow

I have mentioned before my love for Oreo cookies!!   They are absolutely my favorite snack to have in the house…my hips my not like them but I still love them anyways.  I was having family come into town and we always get together and play some sort of card games.  So I wanted to have to have some snacks that we all could enjoy.   The first thing that came to mind was muddy buddies.   When I started looking for muddy buddy recipes on line I was in shock at the variety that was availbale.  Then I saw this recipe from your Cup of Cake  and I knew right away that I needed to make it.

Well it was a huge hit and I fell in love with this recipe. So I know you will to.

On a side note, I always like to read the comments on recipes just to see if someone said they liked it.  I found it funny how people wanted us to make sure that we should not be feeding our dogs such a snack…ha ha!

M&M pudding cookies

I love cookies…but I seriously suck at making them!
  I have always given up on making them because they never work so instead I just buy the 
pre-made dough and “bake” them. 
 
To be honest I halved this recipe because I was positive they wouldn’t work out!
But luckily for me, my curse at making crappy cookies is finally behind me!
As you can tell they are thick and fluffy and well they were delicious (I’m wishing now I would have made the whole batch).
Maybe it was the pudding im not sure, but I don’t really care cause know I can make cookies again!

Rocky Road Chocolate Chips Cookies

I saw these on the internet and I just knew they would satisfy my chocolate craving.  I will admit that they were not as dreamy as I thought they would be. They were good but not the flavor I was hoping to get to satisfy my sweet tooth.  But I think you should all give them a try and see if your family will enjoy them.  On a side note the batter was really good.
 
 

2 cups Flour
2/3 cup cocoa
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 large eggs
2/3 cup sour cream
2 tsp vanilla
1 cup broken nuts
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
2 cups mini marshmallows

In a separate bowl sift together flour, cocoa, baking powder, and salt and set aside.  In another bowl mix the butter, sugar and eggs together until well blended. Mix in sour cream and vanilla.  Add in dry ingredients in sections and mix well together.  Using a spoon mix in chocolate chips and nuts. Place small round balls on a sprayed cookie sheet or use parchment paper.  Bake at 350 for 12 minutes.  Pull out of oven and add the marshmallows to the top and bake another 2 minutes. ( You don’t want your marshmallows to melt)  Let cool.
I added a little extra chocolate to the top.  I melted a few chocolate chips with a little bit of oil and drizzled on top of the cookie.

HOMEMADE OREOS

I have been making these bad boys since I was in Junior High School.   I actually made these in my cooking class and never tossed the recipe.  If you know me, I have very unhealthy addiction to the Oreo cookie. These are probably one of husband favorite desserts and a friend favorite.  Every camping trip im required to bring these cookies and they never make it through the entire weekend.
 
 

1 box chocolate cake mix- I prefer German chocolate or dutch chocolate
6 Tbsp oil
2 eggs
1 can cream cheese frosting

Mix all the ingredients in a bowl with a fork.  It will be hard and you might need to knead with your hands to really get it mixed well.  It will form one big ball.  Roll into 1″ balls and place on cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 8 minutes no longer.  When cookies are done lightly drop on counter to help flatten cookies.  Immediately remove and place on cooling rack.
When cookies are cool add cream cheese frosting and frost the flat side of  one cookie and top with another flat side of another cookie. You can make your own frosting but we like the pre-made stuff better.

Hope you and your family will enjoy them as much as we do.
