By now, you may have realized we have a real love for pudding cookies! It’s amazing to me how a box of pudding can create the most moist and chewy cookies EVER! If you haven’t tried it yet, it’s a must! For our second day of advent this year our little ‘task’ was to make Christmas cookies together. Since it’s still the beginning of December I decided to trial/create a new pudding cookie recipe using our favorite pudding cookie base.
The Chocolate Peppermint Pudding Cookies turned out fantastic with just the right amount of peppermint taste… not too strong. Even my husband who isn’t crazy about peppermint and chocolate together agreed they were good! The only problem came when Day 3 of our Advent Calendar said to share our Christmas cookies with our friends and neighbors… although the boys love to share, they were very concerned that we save a few as well! I agreed! We will definitely be adding these cookies to our Cookie Exchange List this year and making them again soon!
