Chocolate Rolo Pudding Cookies

After I found my new love for these pudding cookies, I wanted to try out new combos using different pudding mixes. I saw in a few of your comments you had tried different variations and I wanted to as well!

I used the same recipe just substituted the type of pudding and mix-ins and added a little salt this time. These cookies really are incredible! This time around I made Chocolate pudding cookies and they were delicious!

Chocolate Rolo Pudding Cookies from ....Caramel-Chocolate perfection!


1 1/2 sticks (or 3/4 cup) butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 (3.4 oz) package instant chocolate pudding
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp baking soda
2-1/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup chocolate chips/Rolos

Preheat oven to 350 F.
Stir together flour, salt and baking soda and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars together.
Add in pudding package and beat until well blended.
Add eggs and vanilla and mix until smooth.
Add flour mixture slowly until well incorporated.
At this point, I split my dough in half.  To half of the dough I added 1/2 to 3/4 cup chocolate chips. To the other half, I took a Rolo and molded each cookie dough ball around the Rolo.
Roll into 1″ balls and place on greased baking sheet.
Bake at 350 F for 8-12 minutes.

    I used your recipe with Andes Mints and Candy Cane Kiss. They were wonderful. I mentioned you in my post

    Made these tonight and they're still cooling…however they don't flatten?? For what it's worth, I didn't mix the dry ingredients…my husband did. Not sure if we did something wrong.

    I wonder if reese cups would work as well, sounds yummy.

    I made these today. They were a little dry. I wonder if it would make a difference to mix the instant pudding before adding it. I'm gonna try it next time
