Soft Coconut Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies Pin for later
These are a family favorite. The pudding makes them stay soft and not dry or hard. I love how the coconut flavors bring this cookie to a new level of deliciousness! The cookies don't last long around here. They are big fans of coconut bars and coconut candy, so with this combination it certainly tastes like a favorite candy bar in a cookie.
I would venture to say any crumbled candy bar in this recipe would be over the top fabulous. The recipe is so easy to make. If you can't find coconut cream instant pudding, just add 1/4 cup of sweetened coconut to a box of vanilla instant pudding.
I would love to know what other flavors you try and combinations. My next one will be using peanut butter cups chopped and peanuts!
Soft Coconut Cream Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 box instant coconut cream pudding mix
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 white sugar
2 sticks of butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 - 1/4 cups flours + 2tablespoons
1 1/2 teaspoons coconut flavoring or vanilla extract
2 cups semi sweet or white chocolate chips
Optional: 1/2 cup shredded toasted coconut ( I used it)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl cream the sugars and butter for 3 minutes till light. Add the pudding mix and eggs beat around 2 minutes more. Stir in the flour, salt, baking soda and flavoring until well blended. Bake on parchment lined cookie sheet or silpat lined cookie sheet around 10 minutes until set not browned. Cool 2 minutes and remove to wire rack.
PSST!: I can't wait to try other combinations of pudding and chips like instant cheesecake pudding, instant banana cream or instant chocolate pudding, instant lemon with lemon chips and instant butterscotch with peanut butter chips
