Reviews for Two-Chip Chocolate Chippers
"My first time to make them and they were really good. I want to know what brand of pudding people are using. I only had sugar free instant vanilla pudding and used that. They turned out fine but I think they would be better with the real stuff. The cookies do not spread out. Totally love that. I didn't read the smash it a bit until after I baked them all. Also, I think the recipe calls for a bit to many chips. I will be reducing that next time. REALLY GOOD cookie. I am trying to find the magic time for baking as well. 10 minutes was too short. 12 was too long. All ovens run different of course."
"These are delicious as is, but have found the brand of pudding mix used makes a difference. I've found some brands DO make them taste strange, while another brand makes them delicious. For those who thought it was weird, give it another try!"
"I decided to try this recipe after hearing rave reviews about chocolate chip cookies made with pudding mix. Also I had the ingredients on hand for the most part. I didn't add nuts and I only used 1 3/4 cups of chocolate chips (because that's all I had). The cookies were good and there were plenty of chocolate chips. I like my classic chocolate chip recipe a lot (maybe a little better than these), but this recipe is a keeper."
"These are now my go to cookies! I triple the recipe to the point of adding the pudding. I split the dough into 3 batches and add chocolate pudding to one, and vanilla pudding to the other 2 batches. I add a combination of different chips to each batch. Mint chips to half of the chocolate batch, and white chips to the other half of the chocolate batch(sometimes a handful of chocolate chips go in also). I then add M&M's and toasted pecans/walnuts, white chips and mini chocolate chips to the other batches in different combinations. I also mix chip types - some mini chocolate chips with some Giradelli 60% cocoa chips - YUM! These cookies stay soft and I'm always asked for the recipe. I also like to drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet and freeze, then store in freezer bags until your ready to bake. Very versatile cookie. I usually use 1/2 unsalted butter, half butter flavor Crisco, but use regular Crisco if I'm out of butter flavor, it doesn't matter they are always great."
"Also have made these for years - I always use butterscotch inst. pudding, which seems to add more flavor without being "butterscotchy". Makes a good cookie!"
"Yes, the original recipe was in TOH magazine years ago, with the pudding mix. I have been making them for years. I also use half butter and half margarine, even though the original recipe did not specify that. I just use semi-sweet chips. On another note, you can substitute any flavor of pudding mix (chocolate, white chocolate, cheesecake), and chips. Try them with chocolate pudding mix and peanut butter chips."
"I followed this recipe word for word, didn't think there were too many chocolate chips, and I used a tablespoon to scoop my cookies out and got 5 dozen out of it. These were absolutely the BEST cookies my husband and I have ever had that were made from scratch. I plan on making these for Christmas gifts, and I cannot wait! Delicious!"
"These are the best cookies ever! Every time I take them some where everyone just raves about them."
"These will be my new go to cookies. My 4 yo is not a big sweets fan, and I couldn't keep her out of these. Delicious. :)"
"These are good cookies and I will make them again. The recipe is very similar to the one on the bag of the chips that I use. This is my first experience with pudding in the mix though. I think there are too many chips. That was the comment I heard consistently. Next time I will reduce the chips to one cup each. I only got 4 dozen from the batch. If my math is correct, that is one tablespoon of chips in each cookie."
"These cookies are delicious. They are soft, just the way I like them. I did not use vanilla and only 1 cup of chips each. Thinking of using peanut butter and milk chocolate chips next time."
"Was very disappointed. These had NO TASTE! I checked and rechecked to be sure I didn't leave anything out. I even added Extra flavoring and that didn't help. Sad, they looked so good but had no taste"
"I have made cookies very similar to this recipe many times and love the pudding in the mix. I also used chocolate pudding instead of vanilla. Try Toffee Bits in place of nuts! Very good also!!"
"I've been making these for a couple of years now & they're awesome!! Sometimes I use a chocolate pudding mix instead of vanilla."
"Love this recipe. Loads of chocolate chips. This is the only recipe I use anymore. Some times I omit the pecans."
"I'd tried these cookies last year and I found this recipe to be really good! What I did do was make my adjustments to suit my tastes by using 1/2 cup each packed brown sugar and white sugar. I did add 1 tsp. salt & omitted the nuts! I generally don't add nuts to my own cookies as there are folks who are either allergic to nuts or just don't care for nuts! I think that instead of milk chocolate chips, you also can use peanut butter chips or butterscotch chips for variety in chip flavor! In recent times, I've been doing that when I make chocolate chip cookies!I think it just depends on one's taste!Also it depends on what type of chips I have available! I did grease the baking sheets-as a rule, I've done that for easier removal of the cookies from the baking sheets! I also stretch the dough by using a rounded teaspoonful of dough instead of the tablespoon! Thank you, Lee Ann Miller,for this recipe! Dawn E. Lowenstein"
"LOVE these cookies! My Friends and family go crazy over these! LOVE all of Leeann's recipes!"
"This is the only recipe I use to bake CC cookies! It's fabulous."
"These are yummy and always a big hit. I reduce the amount of chocolate chips by about 1/2 cup and sometimes use seasonal M&Ms for half the chips."
"Loved the combination of the two chocolate chips and using butter/margarine. The vanilla pudding gave it a great flavor. Thanks for sharing!"
"No complaints with this one! Cookies came out perfect, taste and texture."
"This recipe is delicious!"
"I will never make a different recipe again after trying this one. It's moist and delicious and the cookie doesn't get hard and cruncy. Yummm!"
"I followed this recipe exactly. I used the 1 stick of butter and 1 stick of margarine, even though I never use margarine in cookies. I thought the cookies did not taste rich enough and felt like it was because of the missing butter. I also felt that 3 cups of chips were too many for this recipe. I have had better chocolate chip cookies, but these were okay."
"best cookies in the world"
"I made these cookies and they were a Big Hit!! I did alter two ingredients, instead of pecans I used walnuts and I substituted the milk chocolate with dark chocolate and they were fantastic. The easiest to mix and best tasting chocolate chip cookies I've ever eaten!! Thank You so much for the recipe. I like the idea of changing up pudding mixes, could be very good."
"I was intrigued by the vanilla pudding mix, and it was a definite plus. I followed this recipe exactly, and the cookies were incredible. Nice, soft consistency, great taste, and a nice touch using a combination of chocolate chips. This will be my new "go-to" choc. chip cookie recipe. I might even experiment with different puddings.... I'm thinking pistachio pudding mix with pistachio nuts and mini choc. chips..... Oh the possibilities!!!"
"These were great! Very soft and chewy. I decreased the chocolate chips dramatically- 3 cups was way too much."
"This was a simple to make cookie recipe. It was average in taste. I would make it again with my daughter due to the ease. The cookies hold their shape nicely. I thought the combination of the butter and margarine was nice and mixed easily."
"The cookies were amazing and they stayed super soft..i think with the pudding added to the mix make a big difference...Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
