These easy Vanilla Pudding Cookies are loaded with two kinds of chocolate chips, M&M’s candies, and sprinkles. The best part about these cookies is that they stay soft for a week…if they last that long.

Last Sunday I decided to take a break from the craziness and just bake a fun batch of cookies for the kid’s lunches. I used to make pudding cookies all the time, but we haven’t had them in a while. Now I have a feeling these peanut butter pudding cookies need to be next.
I bake best when I can just decide last minute what I want to bake, so I was pretty excited to get in the kitchen and make cookies on a whim.
Into the pantry I went where I found Easter M&M’s that no one has plundered. For the most part our kids know that they need to ask before consuming. Of course, when I’m out of town, everything is fair game. I also grabbed a few random bottles of sprinkles that needed used up.
I figured that these cookies would serve two purposes. 1. Get me away from baking deadlines. 2 Give the kids something different to pack in their lunches.
The only thing I didn’t account for was that they were on spring break all week. There was no need for cookies in lunches. Although my daughter has been munching on one here and there, and I am happy to report that she said they were still soft and delicious a week later.
Gotta love what a pudding mix can do for a cookie!!!
Adding instant pudding to cookie dough adds flavor, but it also adds such a chewy and soft texture. Definitely my favorite kind of cookie!
Another great thing is that you can change out the flavor of the pudding and your mix-ins and create a completely different cookie. Another one of our favorites are these butterscotch pudding cookies. Pretzels and chocolate chips work very well together.
Now that it is a new school week, I should really get back in the kitchen and make some more vanilla pudding cookies. This time they will actually get used in school lunches!
