  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 3.4 oz package chocolate pudding mix (like Jell-O brand)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon instant espresso powder
  • 1 10 ounce bag chocolate chunks (could substitute chocolate chips)


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper, set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar with a handheld mixer until fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Add in the pudding mix, flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until combined. Fold in chocolate chunks. 
  • Using a cookie scoop, measure out equal balls of dough and place on baking sheet. Flatten slightly while pressing in any remaining chocolate chunks on top of the cookies. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool on a wire baking rack. 



Make-ahead tip: this dough freezes great. Roll into balls and freeze in an airtight container for up to 2 months. When ready to bake, just place cookie balls on cookie sheet, no thawing needed. You may need to add another minute or two to the cooking time.
