Chocolate Pudding Rolo Cookies #OXOGoodCookie


Chocolate Pudding Rolo Cookies

It seems like forever since I have posted a cookie recipe for you.  Taking a quick peek at the archives and it looks like The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie was the last real cookie I shared, and that was back in May!  One should never go that long without cookies, I apologize! But I am here today to make it up to you.

Chocolate Pudding Rolo Cookies

Pudding cookies are kind of magic.  If you have never tried it, you really need to.  You can add any flavor pudding you like to a cookie (it will taste like that flavor), and it leads to thick, chewy, and super soft cookies.  Remember the Butterscotch pudding cookies?  Loved those!  Well this time I went the chocolate route.  And I have been having a serious chocolate and caramel craving lately, so I picked up some mini Rolo’s to throw in the mix.

Chocolate Pudding Rolo Cookies
