  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature, 1 stick
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1.75 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 3.5 oz chocolate instant pudding mix
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3/4 cup red and pink M&M's candy
  • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mat, like Silpat. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream butter for 30 seconds. Add both sugars and beat for 3 minutes, until light and fluffy.
  • Add egg and vanilla and mix until well incorporated.
  • In another mixing bowl, whisk together flour, pudding mix, cocoa powder soda and salt.
  • Add the dry ingredients to the butter sugar mixture and mix with an electric mixer until almost incorporated. Switch to a rubber spatula or a wooden spoon, add semi-sweet chocolate chips and M&M's (reserving the white chocolate and some of semi-sweet and M&M's) and stir in until well mixed.
  • Scoop the cookie dough with a medium (1 and 1/2 tablespoon) cookie scoop. Roll into balls and place on prepared cookie sheet, spacing them 2" apart.
  • Press reserved chocolate chips and M&M's onto the balls.
  • Bake cookies for 9 to 11 minutes (10 minutes was the magic number for me). Cool for 2 minutes on the sheet, then transfer onto a cooling rack to cool completely.
