Coconut S’mores Pudding Sandwiches

I may or may not be addicted to making pudding cookies…I’ll let you be the judge of that:-)
I just love how soft these cookies become with a whole box of instant pudding in the batter. They have very quickly become my go to cookie of all time. With so many different pudding flavors and mix ins, the flavors are endless!!!
These sprinkles have been in my baking cupboard for a few days just waiting to be used. Like I need a reason to use sprinkles…my kids love them on everything. We make hot cocoa and my daughter has to have sprinkles on top of the marshmallows. Makes me so proud…I have taught her well:-)
Pudding cookies are not a new thing.  In fact, I see new variations popping up all the time.  Definitely tempting me to make more every week.  While I was at Walmart buying the sprinkles, I also bought coconut pudding…for cookies:-)  As I headed down the baking aisle, my eyes wandered to the marshmallows.  Did you know there is a marshmallow coated in toasted coconut?

That very instant I knew how to make the pudding cookie different.  It was going to become a pudding sandwich with a marshmallow filling!!!

 I was going to roll the edges in the sprinkles, but I still thought they looked a little boring.  When I think of marshmallows, I always think of chocolate.  I figured how can you go wrong dipping these sandwiches into a chocolate bath!!!  The sprinkles stood out so much more on the dark chocolate coating.  These may be my new favorite kind…at least until I make another variation:-)

How many of you have a Silpat and use it all the time?

I just got my first one and I have to tell you how much I love it!!!  My air bake sheets are usually the only thing I will ever use for cookies,  but I can honestly say that the Silpat kicks the air bake pan’s butt!  I couldn’t believe how easy it was to just slide the cookies off.  Then I  baked up a batch on the air bake to compare it to the Silpat batch.

The cookies baked on the Silpat actually baked up just a little bit puffier,  and they didn’t spread out as much!  So basically the Silpat is the most awesomest thing ever.  Everyone needs one in their baking cupboard.

AAAAAAANNNNNNDDDDDD…now one of you will!  Silpat is giving away one half size mat to one lucky BruCrew reader.

Coconut S’mores Pudding Sandwiches

Coconut pudding cookies filled with a coconut marshmallow and dipped in chocolate.

Ingredients

1 c. butter
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. coconut extract
1 pkg. (3.4 oz.) instant coconut cream Jello pudding
2 1/4 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 c. shredded coconut
1/2 c. miniature chocolate chips
12 toasted coconut marshmallows
2 c. chocolate chips
1 Tbsp. shortening
sprinkles

Instructions

  1. Cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the eggs and coconut extract and beat again. Mix together the flour, baking soda, salt, and dry pudding mix. Slowly add to the butter mixture. Stir in the coconut and mini chocolate chips by hand.
  2. Use a teaspoon to scoop out the batter onto a baking sheet. Bake at 375* for 8-10 minutes. The smaller time will make cookies that are slightly underdone. The higher time will be more done. Cool cookies completely.
  3. Cut the marshmallow in half. Place a couple cookies at a time on a glass plate and top with half a marshmallow, cut side down. Heat 10 seconds at a time, or until marshmallow is soft and puffed up. Top with another cookie and press down. Let cool again.
  4. In a microwave safe bowl, combine the regular chocolate chips and the shortening. Heat for 30 seconds and stir. Repeat until melted and creamy. Dip the cookies in the chocolate and place on wax paper. Sprinkle with any color sprinkles while the chocolate is wet. Let set before eating. Makes about 24 sandwiches.

    I swear, you and Aimee always post something at the exact same time. You must plan that or something :) I like it, I get to see two yummy treats at the same time. I’m pretty sure I would LOVE these cookies.

    This is such an awesome version of s’mores! I love the idea of sandwiching a marshmallow in between two cookies. And you gotta love pudding cookies. Great recipe all around!

    Okay, I am going to try this recipe–I think I already have all the ingredients! Thanks for sharing your creative foody genius with the rest of us! :)

    What makes these little sandwiches amazing is that you actually took them to the next level and dipped them in chocolate! Everything I love in one little cookie! I have loads of pudding boxes (I’m a closet hoarder). I know how to use them up!

      You can substitute any flavor of pudding and just leave out the shredded coconut. That is what I love the most about this cookie…so versatile!!!

    I want a silpat. I tried a generic and it didn’t work for me because the size was too big and didn’t fit on any cookie sheets! Crazy!
    I haven’t been a huge fan if pudding cookies but those with marshmallow coconut dipped in chocolate, I say yes ma’am!! I think I’ll make them for our Halloween party!
