I was needing some cookies for the lunches and I had tried these a few weeks ago, to the children's credit they ate those and said they were good but I wasn't quite satisfied with them because they were too dark and too dry. I decided to try them again last night and change things up a bit. These turned out just right. Chewy, chocolaty, and delicious with milk or with coffee.
Preheat oven to 375°.
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
¾ cup brown sugar
¾ cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
¼ cup dark chocolate cocoa
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 small box chocolate fudge instant pudding
1 cup dark chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate chips
Cream butter, sugars, eggs, and vanilla until light and creamy. Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl and add in batches to the creamed mixture. Mix well after each addition. Add the chocolate chips and mix. With a size 30 cookie scoop drop onto a baking sheet and bake for 12 minutes. Allow to set on baking sheet several minutes after removing from the oven to let them set up.
I'm in love with Silpat mats!! If you don't have one or two, go quickly and buy one!!
Remove to a wire rack and cool completely and store in an airtight container. Makes approximately 30 cookies.
