Perfectly chocolate with cocoa powder and chocolate fudge pudding mix plus festive Valentine's M&M’s make these soft and chewy cookies positively spectacular!
In a medium-size bowl, whisk together flour and baking soda. Set aside.
In a large bowl using an electric mixer, beat together butter and sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla extract; mix until combined.
Gently fold in 1 cup of Valentine's M&M's Chocolate Candies.
Place balls of dough on a tray or cookie sheet, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Do not bake cookies without chilling as they are prone to spreading.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges have set. Do not overbake, which is easy to do with chocolate cookies.
Cool cookies on baking sheet on wire rack for 5 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Eat & Enjoy!
Valentine Chocolate Pudding M&M Cookies should be stored in an airtight container and will keep 4+ days.
¹ You want a 3.7-3.9 ounce package of instant pudding mix NOT sugar-free or cook & serve. You're also NOT making the pudding, just using the mix in your batter.
