How To Make Cookies and Cream Cookies

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Place butter, brown sugar and sugar into a large mixing bowl or stand mixer. Beat until well combined.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla mixing well. Add flour, cocoa powder, pudding mix, baking soda and salt, slowly mix until dough forms.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips or chunks and Hershey’s Bars.
  5. Scoop 1/3 cup size dough, roll into balls and place onto baking sheets 2 inches apart. I do 2 per row with 6 balls per sheet.
  6. Bake for 10 minutes and remove for soft gooey cookies. Bake for 12-14 minutes for more firm cookies.
  7. Let cool completely before transferring to cooling rack.

Hershey’s Cookies and Cream Bars

I like to get the XL Hershey’s Cookies and Cream Bars at the grocery store. Break them either into bars or keep them in their rectangle shape for giant chunks in each cookie.

Now this is my kind of chocolate cookie dough 🙂

Scoop 1/3 cup pieces of cookie dough onto your baking sheet a good 2 inches a part. You can also make normal size cookies placing 1 inch apart.
