I have a slight obsession with chocolate chip cookies. I have a LOT of recipes for chocolate chip cookies – several of them here on my blog. This version is different because of the vanilla pudding and chocolate chunks. I have had vanilla pudding chocolate chip cookies before and I really just was not impressed because the dough was rather bland. This recipe though is nowhere near bland! I have taken the flavor levels up a notch with extra vanilla and lots of brown sugar and added chocolate chunks instead of chips. The results are fabulous! THIS recipe is my newest “go to” FAVORITE chocolate chunk cookie recipe! Highly recommend these!
Vanilla Pudding Chocolate Chunk Cookies
2 sticks (8 oz.) unsalted butter, soft
3/4 cup light brown sugar, packed

1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups white all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chunks mixed with 1 tablespoon white all-purpose flour
Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl combine the soft unsalted butter, light brown sugar and white granulated sugar until light in color and fluffy in texture.

Gently fold in the white all-purpose flour.
Gently fold in the chocolate chunks.
