Cocoa Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

Crisp outside but chewy inside, these sweet sensations will disappear in a hurry. "I home-school our six children," writes Mary Dudek from Alliance, Ohio. "The kids always have friends over, so I like to keep snacks on hand. They love these cookies."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. Bake: 10 min. YIELD:51 servings


  • 2/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 package (3.9 ounces) instant chocolate pudding mix
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (12 ounces) miniature semisweet chocolate chips


  • 1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, oil and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs. Beat in pudding mix and water. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; gradually add to the chocolate mixture and mix well (dough will be stiff). Stir in the chocolate chips.
  • 2. Roll into 1-in. balls. Place 2 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 9-11 minutes or until set and edges are firm. Cool for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks. Yield: about 8-1/2 dozen.

"Oh yes, I will definitely make these again!! So moist and chocolaty, and the batter was very light and fluffy. This one is a keeper for sure. If any of my co-workers are reading this, I'll be bringing these in soon! Great recipe!"

"Have made it before, but switched to pumpkin spice pudding and toffee chips for the Holidays. Yummy. Daughter said it tastes like a pumpkin snickerdoodle!

Not sure if my oven is running low... taking about 13 minutes to bake."

"These are to die for!!! I, like MarcyC48, added 2 Tbsp of Cocoa. Instead of rolling into balls, I dropped by teaspoon.. I intend on making these over and over! They are now my favorite chocolate Chip cookie recipe!!!"

"I just wish they didn't use a pudding mix. I try to avoid partially hydrogenated oils/trans fats."

"Ever since I discovered this recipe, it had become my most requested cookie by my grandchildren and my adult children. I even add 2 Tbsp of Special Dark Cocoa to the batter to make them even more chocolaty. As my son says,"They are the bomb Mom. Great with mint chocolate chips or raspberry chocolate chips too!"

"Delish! I was looking for a "new" chocolate Chip Recipe and came across this one, which I had made when I first recieved this

magazine. There are so many wonderful recipes in Reiman magazines that I forget about some of them! This is an old friend."

"Have made this cookie several times, my husband loves it. They do not dry out like a normal cookie. I have had several requests for the recipe, but I don't want my friends to see how easy these cookies are to make."
