Ingredients:

  • 2  cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup instant vanilla pudding mix
    3/4 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar

Directions:

  1. In a stand mixer (or large bowl with electric hand blender) combine butter, white and brown sugar, egg, vanilla, and mix on medium-high speed until well combined and creating a creamy texture. (This takes about 3 minutes.)
  2. Add flour, pudding mix, baking soda, salt, and turn mixer to low speed. Mix until all ingredients are merged together. Do not over mix.
  3. Add the chocolate chips, 1 cup M&M’s, and mix on low speed until combined.
  4. Form 12 equal-sized mounds of dough, roll into balls, and slightly flatten about half way. You may want to add a few extra M&M’s to the tops of the cookies at this point.
  5. Place cookies on a large plate, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. (This step is essential to not having flat cookies).
  6. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, spray with cookie sheet with cooking spray. Place cookie dough on baking sheet. Make sure to space at least 2 inches apart and bake for 11 minutes or until golden brown around the edges.
  7. Cool on baking sheet for about 10 minutes before serving. Do not use a rack.
  8. Serve and enjoy :)
