1 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter softened (1 stick)
1/2 c. sour cream
1 small box instant vanilla pudding mix 3.4 ounces
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 c. all-purpose flour
2 teaspoon mint extract
3 drops blue colouring plus 10-15 drops green colouring
1 1/2 c. chocolate chips
HOW TO MAKE MINT CHOCOLATE PUDDING COOKIES
Step 1: In a bowl, cream the sugar and butter.
Step 2: Add in the egg, sour cream, and pudding mix.
Step 3: Combine the flour, salt & baking soda in a small bowl.
Step 4: Mix the flour mixture into the pudding mixture until well incorporated.
Step 5: Stir in the mint extract and food colouring until you reach your desired colour.
Step 6: Fold in the chocolate chips. For this recipe, I used 3/4 cups chocolate chunks, 3/4 cup regular chocolate chips, and half a cup of Andes baking bits. Feel free to use any combination but remember that Andes mint baking pieces kind of disappear in the cookies although they add a wonderful flavour. So what you can do is beside the 1/2 cups chocolate chip, you can also put the Andes bits with them.
Step 7: Onto a greased cookie sheet, drop rounded tablespoons of the cookie dough.
Step 8: Place inside the preheated 375 degrees oven and bake for about 10 minutes.
Step 9: When done, remove from the oven and onto a cooling rack.
