1cupsalted sweet cream butter,softened at room temperature
¾cuplight brown sugar,tightly packed
2¼teaspoonspure vanilla extract
3.9ouncesinstant chocolate pudding mix
3cupssemi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set the baking sheets aside.
Add the flour, unsweetened cocoa, and baking soda to a medium-sized bowl. Whisk to combine completely. Set it aside.
Using a stand mixer or a medium-sized mixing bowl and a handheld mixer on medium-high speed, beat the butter for 1 to 1½ minutes until smooth.
Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar, and beat for another 1½ to 2 minutes until lighter in color and fluffy.
Lower the mixer speed to medium and add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each egg. Continue beating until no yellow streaks remain and until well incorporated.
Keep the mixer speed at medium, add in the vanilla, and beat just until combined.
Add the instant pudding and beat just until combined.
Add the dry ingredients 1½ cups at a time, beating well after each cup.
Fold in the chocolate chips.
Use a 3 tablespoon cookie scoop or 1½ tablespoon cookie scoop for the cookie dough and place it onto the baking sheets. Place the scooped dough 2 inches apart. Gently, slightly press the dough. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until the edges of the cookie center appear slightly underdone. Allow the cookies to rest on the cookie sheet for 2 to 3 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.
Make sure you are buying instant pudding mix and not the kind of pudding that needs to be cooked.
Make sure you are just adding the dry pudding mix. Do not make the actual pudding.
Oven temperatures vary and may need to be recalibrated periodically to ensure they are accurate. Make sure to check your cookies at the lower end of the recommended baking time.
