My husband enjoys soft, chewy chocolate chip cookies every so often. Instead of buying the store ones, Chips Ahoy or whatever, I did a search for recipes online. Almost all of them included Pudding Mix.
I subsituted chocolate pudding mix for the vanilla, and white chocolate morsels for the regular chocolate chips, so it was kind of an opposite, black & white cookie. I also halfed the ingredients cause I didn't feel the need to make so many cookies. I still made enough for 2 dozen.They were delicious.
