Have you tried the ever popular pudding cookies? There are different variations floating all around the internet. There’s a reason why they are so popular. They are dang good! The pudding mix in the cookies makes them extra soft and yummy. I have a chocolate chip pudding cookie recipe that we love, but I wanted to tweak it a bit to make it more Halloween appropriate.

Reese’s pieces are the perfect colors for fall, so I went with a peanut butter version. I even added some peanut butter to the cookie dough. It took a couple tries, but I came up with a recipe that turned out just as I was imagining it in my head. Nice and soft and chewy, and full of peanut butter and chocolate goodness. One of my test runs didn’t include chocolate chips, but we like them much better with the extra chocolate. 🙂

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies with Pudding

3/4 cup soft butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 3.4oz box of instant vanilla pudding (dry)
2 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla
2 1/4 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup chocolate chips
2/3 cup peanut butter chips
2/3 cup Reese’s pieces or mini baking bits
Beat the butter, peanut butter, sugars, and vanilla till smooth and creamy. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. Whisk together the dry ingredients and stir in with the chips and Reese’s pieces. Drop by spoonfuls onto lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for about 10 minutes.
-Makes about 3 dozen

  1. Made theses with butterscotch pudding instead of vanilla and they are AMAZING! Thanks for the recipe, will be making theses many more times!

  2. Cheryl Davitz says:

    Try other puddings, chips & nuts! Jello makes a Turtle pudding (chocolate/caramel flavor). Add chocolate chips and chopped pecans! Or French vanilla and add white chocolate chips and macadamia nuts. My recipe for these came from the back of the Jello box! It is probably still floating around in my recipes some where!

    • I’ve never seen the turtle pudding, but I bet it would be awesome! I’ll have to start looking for it at my local stores so I can give it a try. 🙂

  3. Those look so yummy, Kara! I have not tried any of the pudding cookie recipes but I think I’m going to soon. And I love Reeses Pieces! lol XOXO
