I have to start by saying these cookies are AMAZING!

First of all, who doesn’t love a soft chocolate chip cookie?  And then add peanut butter – what’s not to love?

Peanut Butter M&M Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

I first came across the soft chocolate chip cookie recipe and was surprised to see that it called for a box of vanilla pudding (I guess you can tell that I’m not a baker).  And since I was making the cookies for a Christmas party, I thought it would be fun to add some red and green Peanut Butter M&M’s.

If you love peanut butter and chocolate as much as we do, then you will love these cookies!
