Need a chocolate fix? I’ve got you covered.
I start with a soft chocolate pudding cookie and then mix in a whole bag of Nestle Bunch-a-Crunch candy and a few heaping cups of chocolate rice cereal (for even more crunch).
These may not be the most “seasonal” cookies, but they will satisfy the chocoholics in your life. I think this recipe is a fun twist on the traditional chocolate chocolate chip cookie…give them a try and let me know what you think!
FYI – I’m going to be keeping the posts pretty short this week as I’ve got 8 new recipes to share with you this week. Trying to make sure I get them all up before Christmas so ya’ll can use them!
Chocolate Crisp Cookies
- 2 1/4 c. flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 c. unsalted butter, softened
- 3/4 c. brown sugar
- 1/4 c. sugar
- 1 (3oz.) package instant chocolate pudding mix (I used Jello’s Chocolate Fudge)
- 2 T. cocoa powder
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 (9oz.) package of Bunch-a-Crunch candy
- 2 c. chocolate rice cereal (e.g., Cocoa Krispies)
Preheat oven to 350°.
Combine the flour and baking soda and set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugars. Beat in the instant pudding mix and cocoa until blended. Stir in the eggs and vanilla.
Add the flour mixture.
Stir in the candy and rice cereal.
Using rounded spoonfuls, place the dough balls onto cookie sheets that are lined with parchment paper or a silpat liner.
Bake 10-12 minutes. They may still look a little under-done. That’s okay, they’ll keep cooking on the tray as they cool. Once they are comfortable to touch, transfer to a cooling rack.
