Valentine Chocolate Pudding M&M Cookies with Valentine’s M&M’s!!
Valentine’s Day is a week away. A.WEEK.AWAY! I seriously can’t believe it. It was just January an eye blink ago but here we are with Valentine’s Day, so cookies with Valentine’s M&M’s is a MUST!
These Valentine Chocolate Pudding M&M Cookies are super spectacular!! They’re soft and chewy, which IMO is how cookies should be. They’re deliciously chocolatey with cocoa powder, chocolate fudge pudding mix, and chocolate M&M’s of course. There is so much chocolate perfection. They are a chocolate lovers dream.
The chocolate fudge pudding mix makes these Valentine Chocolate Pudding M&M Cookies not only perfectly chocolate, but it also makes them perfectly soft. It's also the reason why the cookie dough requires refrigeration time. You don't want to skip on the chill time, as these cookies are prone to spreading. No worries though, you can use this time to wash dishes. 😝
Give Valentine Chocolate Pudding M&M Cookies to someone you love this Valentine's Day, someone like yourself, or if you must a significant other who will share with you! 😉
