I’ve been making these pudding chocolate chip cookies for decades, and I’m not sure why I’ve never shared the recipe before. They are so yummy!

Adding pudding mix makes for extra soft chocolate chip cookies that have great flavor. My mom once told me she calls these her “no-fail” cookies, because they turn out soft, delicious, and pretty every single time.

Can I use a different flavor of pudding in my soft chocolate chip cookies?

Yes, absolutely! My kids like the vanilla pudding version the best, but there are so many tasty options. I’ve also made them with chocolate pudding mix and cheesecake pudding mix. I’ve had a few friends try banana pudding with milk chocolate chips.

If you want, you can also use different flavors of chips. White chocolate chips are great with lemon pudding. Use your imagination, the flavor combinations are endless!
