I usually make this recipe with a vanilla pudding mix, but I decided to change it up a bit and try it with chocolate pudding. It was pretty good! The only thing I would do different next time, is that I would add a peppermint filling and squish it between two cookies. Now that would put these over the top with yummyness!!
If you haven’t noticed, I like recipes that are versatile. This recipe can be easily changed into your favorite flavor by just changing the pudding. You could even change the type of chips that you use. Butterscotch pudding with Butterscotch chips, Coconut Cream pudding with Chocolate chips, White Chocolate pudding with White Chocolate or Chocolate chips… What would be your favorite flavors? Leave me a comment and let me know. I would love to hear your ideas!
