Scoop dough into heaping tablespoon rounds, or use a #50 disher to scoop balls of dough. Press a couple M&M's Chocolate Candies into the tops of the dough balls.
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.
Preheat oven to 350F degrees.
Place rounds of dough on a silicone mat/parchment paper lined baking sheet 2" apart.
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 the batter.
