Pinned it Tuesday: boyfriend cookies

23 Apr

I figured two things would probably be true with these cookies: first, the Chef would love them; and second, he would die of shock that I actually baked/cooked/prepared something for him.  But after my bake sale success (my pb cub cookies won first place in the cookie category!), I was feeling pretty confident.

Boyfriend Cookies 

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 (3.5 ounce) package instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups chocolate chips (1 cup milk choc & 1 cup semisweet)
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter chips
  • 1/2 cup M&M’s
  • 1/2 cup Reese’s Pieces

Directions: Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Combine flour and baking soda; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Fold in chocolate chips and remaining candy.  Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheets. I usually use a small spring-loaded cookie scoop. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned.  Cool on wire racks.
