Just make sure you check the pantry for the chocolate chips, because at my house some people get these chocolate cravings and my chocolate chips disappear. Sometimes I hide them so that doesn’t happen. (We know most of her hiding spots though! – Allison)
You could use peanut butter chips, white chocolate chips , or butterscotch chips. Whatever you have in your pantry in case the chocolate chips have magically disappeared.
Here are the ingredients you will need: flour, baking soda, soft margarine or butter, brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla, eggs, chocolate chips, and the secret ingredient: a 3.4 ounce package of instant vanilla pudding.
In a bowl cream white sugar, brown sugar and softened butter or margarine together. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.
I used my Kitchen Aid mixer, which I absolutely love! But you could use a hand mixer or even a whisk if you want to get a workout. Next, add flour, baking soda, and dry vanilla pudding mix and mix well.
Stir in chocolate chips by hand and drop by teaspoonful on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Then, simply bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 or until just light brown and when touched with your finger tip that it doesn’ t leave and imprint.
Take off of cookie sheet so they cool faster, because you won’t be able to wait to try one. Chewy deliciousness!
