It’s my favorite day of the year: the day when I get to stand in line for hours, and hours, and hours just to mail away my hard-earned money!

{That would all be in a sarcasm font, if my Mac were so advanced.}

There is only one thing that can make Tax Day more bearable and that is chocolate. Copious amounts of soft, fudgy chocolate. Enter Quadruple Chocolate Pudding Cookies! These are officially my new favorite chocolate cookies.

 They are the richest, chocolatiest, thickest, best chocolate cookies I have ever had! Once you bite into one, your life will never be the same. Never.

Mmm hmm. After a few of these bad boys writing that check to Uncle Sam won’t seem as devastating. Miracle cookies these are.

Pudding cookies seem to be the new “It Food of 2014”.  Never one to miss a cookie party, I figured I’d see what all the buzz was about by whipping up some of my own.

All I have to say is these Quadruple Chocolate Pudding Cookies are buzzworthy!

I used bittersweet chocolate chips {Ghirardelli, you know me by now!}, Hershey’s Special Dark Chocolate Pudding mix, cocoa powder AND melted chocolate! The pudding mix, melted chocolate, and brown sugar make these cookies extra moist and pushes them over the edge into Chocoholic’s Heaven!

Quadruple Chocolate Pudding Cookies

These Quadruple Chocolate Pudding Cookies have bittersweet chocolate chips, melted chocolate, chocolate pudding mix and cocoa powder! Soft, thick and chewy – chocolate cookies don’t get much better than this!!
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 24 minutes
Total: 39 minutes
Servings: 24 Cookies



  • Whisk together flour, baking powder, pudding mix, cocoa powder, and salt in a medium bowl and set aside.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, add butter and sugar. Beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla, beat to combine. {The mixture may look curdled at this point, which is fine.}
  • Reduce the mixer speed to low and slowly add the flour mixture in several additions, mixing just until combined after each addition. Stop several times to scrape down the sides of the bowl. I did 7 total additions.
  • With the mixer running, slowly pour in the melted chocolate; mix until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • Refrigerate 3 hours or overnight for the thickest, chewiest cookies. I baked several without chilling, because I am impatient, and they were still thick with a fabulous texture, but they improved greatly after some refrigeration.
  • Preheat oven to 350° and line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Roll into balls approximately the size of ping-pong balls, place 2 inches apart on parchment lined cookie sheets, press down slightly to flatten top.
  • Bake 12 minutes in pre-heated oven. The tops should still be glossy in the middle. They won’t look “done”. Allow to cool 10 minutes on cookie sheet and then move to a wire rack to cool completely. The cookies will firm up as they cool. If you break one open while it is warm, it will be a mess. A delicious mess.


Yield: 24 Cookies
This cookie dough freezes beautifully! Simply roll the chilled dough into balls, freeze in a plastic, zip-top bag, and bake as directed {add in ~3 minutes} whenever a craving strikes! They might be even better baked from frozen. Just sayin’.

    1. I don’t see why not, Lisa! I made lemon ones too. That might be more easily adaptable to vanilla. Happy baking!

  1. Or if you are lucky enough to live in a city that has a store, visit. Like I said, you won’t be able to control yourself if you love spices.

    1. I’ll consider myself forewarned!!! lol!

      Trouble is coming! I just googled it and there is one in Atlanta!!! So excited!

  2. Penzey’s is wonderful but be warned – if you are like me, you end up buying more than you should. Their website is rather plain and unexciting but they have a wonderful catalog/magazine that comes out every month or so. Go to their site and request a copy!

  3. I know what you mean – I have never seen it in grocery stores around here. I buy mine from Penzey’s. You can get various sizes – I get a large bag and it lasts for a long time.

    1. You are the second person the mention Penzey’s. I’ll have to check them out. I always worry about buying food online because you never know if it’s legitimate, but I’ve read a lot about Penzey’s and they seem reputable. Thanks for the help!

  4. Do you use Dutch-process cocoa? I didn’t start using it until I got into serious baking. It really makes a difference.

    1. I LOVE Dutch processed cocoa but I didn’t use it in this recipe. None of the local stores around me sell it and Whole Foods stopped selling the imported brand I like and started selling this new one which is AWFUL! I refuse to use it. I think I’m going to break down and buy it online.

  5. These are like CRAZZZZZY good! How many times can you put chocolate in a cookie? 4 times baby! 4 times!!! Lovin’ these extra, extra, extra, extra chocolate-y goodness! I’m in a chocolate-y heaven right now. 🙂 And it’s all good here. Hahaha! Pinned! It’s the extra chocolate swoosh in that cookie that had me at hello.

    1. ALOL! If I could have figured out a way to do 5 that wasn’t “cheating”, I totally would have! The more the merrier is how I feel about chocolate! Thanks for the pin!
