I’ve slightly adapted Perfect M&M Cookies recipe from Picky Palate. It uses pudding mix. Have you tried adding pudding to your cookie dough? It makes them incredibly soft and able to hold a lot of goodies. Hence the “loaded” in the title. I was able to stuff these babies with tons of chocolate chips. I added a sprinkle of sea salt on top of each cookie, which makes them that much more irresistible!

There is chocolatey goodness in every single bite!

Yields about 2 dozen cookie cups

This should work with any recipe for drop cookies. I scooped the ready dough into balls onto a plate, covered them with saran wrap and chilled in the fridge overnight. When ready to bake, simply preheat the oven, place cookie balls into your muffin pan and bake for the time specified in the recipe. Simple yet fun!

Then the fun is up to you: scoop ice cream on top and drizzle it all with fudge sauce (like my favorite 10-Minute Fudge Sauce or this easy 5-Minute Chocolate Sauce. Or simply grab them on the go and enjoy like any other cookie.

I used this muffin pan. It’s my favorite. I imagine it would also work in a mini muffin pan for cute mini cookie cups! icon smile Loaded Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookie Cups

    Hi Audra! Woohoo! We love these cookies too! So glad you are enjoying them! Chilling the dough will make the center take longer too cook, hence it will be more gooey and the edges more set. Also, I always recommend spooning the flour into the measuring cup. Too much flour can prevent spreading. Hope this helps! Thank you!

    What an awesome idea! I bet you could make these beauties in a mini muffin pan too- oh, how cute would that be? I love this. And I’ve never used pudding in cookies before, but I can only imagine how wonderful that would be. The texture must be amazing!

  3. says

    Pudding cookies are my all time favorites because of how soft they end up! I love the idea of making the cookies in a muffin top pan and then using them for ice cream sundaes. Sounds like the perfect summer treat!!!

    I’ve never used pudding in a cookie before but I can just imagine how soft and tender they would be. I love the idea of baking cookies in muffin tins. I can’t wait to make these and use them for an ice cream sandwich – yum!

    These are adorable and a great idea! They remind me of Dorie Greenspan’s jammer cookies. In fact, I think she bakes all her cookies in rings and I’m still hoping she’ll sell those rings soon. : )
