Add these festive Chocolate Mint Pudding Cookies to your holiday cookie trays this month, so that you can watch them disappear. Soft cookies loaded with candies and sprinkles are always a fun treat to share.
*I am partnering with the Cake Boss Baking site this month to bring you new recipes showcasing their products.
Have you started collecting the cookie recipes that you want to make this month for parties and events? Each year at the beginning of December, I start to compile “the list”.
This is a list of cookies, candies, and treats that I want our family to make for the holidays. Usually we try to make about ten different things because we like to package them up and give them to friends and family bring them to parties. Usually this list consists of recipes that get made year after year since they have become favorites.
Each year I also choose one or two new recipes to add to the top ten holiday treats of the month. Right now these chocolate mint pudding cookies and these chocolate chip cherry cookies have jumped to the top of the list as soon as I made them.
This month I am partnering with Cake Boss Baking to bring you recipes using some of their baking products. For this recipe I chose this cookie pan and cookie scoop because I knew I would be testing cookies this month.
I love the sturdy construction of both items. The cookie sheet has guides embossed on the bottom to help bakers place their cookie dough evenly on the pan. A nonstick coating ensures that your cookies will lift off easier making clean up so much easier.
This was the first time I actually used a cookie scoop to portion out my cookie dough, and it had me wondering where it had been all my baking life.
I love how much easier it was to scoop even dough balls. It is a definite must have for your kitchen. I’m excited to use it for scooping cupcake batter next.
Here are some easy tips for making these soft cookies:
- Make sure to set your butter out at least 30 minutes to an hour before you start making the dough because soft butter is much easier to cream with the sugar.
- Use a spatula to move the butter mixture and dough down from the sides of the bowl as you work.
- Gently stir the chocolate chips, candies, & some of the sprinkles into the dough. The dough is stiff so be careful not to mash the candies as you stir.
- Use a cookie scoop to scoop the dough because even dough balls bake better. Roll each scoop into a round ball before pressing extra candies in the top. Roll the dough ball in the remaining sprinkles too.
- Bake the cookies. When the cookies come out of the oven use a flat spatula to gently press or tap each cookie to flatten it slightly.
- Let the cookies cool on the pan for about 2 minutes before moving them to parchment paper on the counter.
- Keep the cookies in a sealed container because you want them to stay soft for days.
- Finally, microwave each cooled cookie for about 5-7 seconds if you want to enjoy a hot “fresh” cookie.
