Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookie Bars

Chocolate chip pudding cookies

I have this old church cookbook that has recipes in it that I love. I discovered in this cookbook a recipe for chocolate chip pudding cookies. When I made these chocolate chip pudding cookies, I realized the pudding made the cookies so moist and chewy.


Easy cookie recipes with few ingredients

I wanted to come up with easy cookie recipes with few ingredients. I only wanted to use what I had in my pantry for this cookie recipe. The chocolate chip pudding cookies came to mind, but what if I changed it to chocolate chip cookie bars?

Bar cookies

Bar cookies are simple to make than regular cookies I think. Since I wanted to keep these chocolate chip cookie bars as an easy cookie recipe with few ingredients, I felt a bar cookie recipe was the best option.


Moist and Chewy

Double chocolate cookie recipe

I was determined to keep this bar cookie recipe to only ingredients in my pantry. So Instead of using vanilla pudding for this chocolate chip cookie bars recipe, I used chocolate pudding. I only had chocolate pudding in my pantry. 


When I did that, these chocolate chip cookie bars quickly became a double chocolate cookie recipe. Not only were the chocolate chip pudding cookies moist and chewy but because of the chocolate pudding, they became rich with chocolate.

Looking at your recipe, the formatting didn't quite put in all your ingredients, at least it doesn't show up on my computer. What size pudding mix? I lost my original cookie recipe and glad to find this...just has missing ingredients. Thanks!

Anything that chewy has to be good. Although I have to admit I am not a chocolate purist, I tend to shy away from solid chocolate things. But slap a dollop of peanut butter on top and I'll be god to go!
