I don’t know why, but I rarely bake cookies.  Trust me, I bake all the time, bread, rolls, muffins, all sorts of snacks for the kids. Cookies…not so much.

The other day when I was baking some pretzels for lunches, Charlie asked if I could PLEASE  bake some cookies next.  He also added…”Not some fancy blog cookie mom, just regular cookies.” Regular cookies, sure, I could have done that, but I didn’t.

{although he was not complaining at all}

Last week while cleaning out  my pantry {you can see my pantry here} I found a box of instant pudding, so I finally decided to get on the pudding in cookies train.

I used a mix of brownie and cookie recipes that  I had floating around, adding the pudding in place of cocoa powder.  The chocolate chips were added for Charlie, and they were great, but totally optional.

The end result was part brownie, part cookie, and tasted like chocolate pudding. Not the regular cookie Charlie requested, but it’s hard to argue with your mouth full 🙂
