Death by Chocolate Chocolate Cookies

I found this recipe on one of my favorite blogs.

One of my favorite chocolate chip cookie recipes is made with instant vanilla pudding mix so I thought one made with instant chocolate pudding mix would be wonderful as well.  I liked this recipe but I didn't love it.  My family loved them but didn't rave about them.  These are indeed chocolately but they do not have that fudgy center like some of the chocolate chocolate chip cookies I've made.  I tried underbaking them a bit and it helped a small amount but they still weren't smooth & fudgy inside.  I guess I was trying to achieve something that these cookies weren't meant to be.  These just have the same texture as a regular chocoalte chip cookie...but they are chocolate.  Very good!  And easy to make. No need to chill the dough.  They don't spread much either.
I used half semi sweet chips & half milk chocolate.


Death by Chocolate Chocolate Cookies
From Stephanies Kitchen

recipe makes about 3 dozen

2 1/4 cups all purpose flour

1/3 cup cocoa

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

3/4 cups butter, softened

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 3.9 oz package instant chocolate pudding mix

2 cups of mix-ins (I used 1 cup of milk chocolate chips and 1 cup of semi-sweet chips)

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa, baking soda and salt. Set aside. Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugars. Add the eggs one at a time until well incorporated. Be sure to scrape the sides of the bowl often. Add the vanilla and pudding mix. Slowly add the dry ingredients just until combined. Stir in your choice of mix-ins. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10-12 minutes. Don’t over bake.

They look so yummy....even if they weren't quite what you were looking for. ;) This gives you a good reason to whip up another version of course....all in the name of experimentation of course.

Chocolate pudding, that is very creative! I never thought to use pudding in cookies. Even if your family didn't rave about them, they were probably very delicious with a glass of cold milk.
