Candy Cane Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

Baking cookies this time of year is best isn’t it? I can’t get enough. Can you even believe that Christmas is this week? Such a fun time with family and friends. Treat them to my cookies, they’ll all be thrilled!

Adding candy cane bits to my favorite cookie dough was a fantastic idea. Not only is the red color fun and festive, the texture that the melted little candy cane bits bring to these cookies are amazing! Can’t wait for you to try them!

    These popped up on Instagram at just the right time to add to my Christmas Cookie list. I used chocolate pudding, because it’s what I had. They were a little tough getting off of cookie sheet, with melty candy canes and all. But my husband and son love them.
