Reviews for Two-Chip Chocolate Chippers
"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."
"I'm not crazy about chocolate chip cookies but I gave these a try and they were yummy. I used the basic recipe but instead of semisweet chips I used milk chocolate. I will definitely make these again."
"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."
"Great cookie recipe! With or without nuts this was a perfect textured cookie. Not "cake-like". It made about 60 cookies and baked in 9 min. As a volunteer food editor with Taste of Home I love making classic recipes with a new twist. Perfect amount of chocolate!"
"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."
"Fabulous!! My whole family, children and grandchildren, say this is their new favorite chocolate chip cookie!"
