Donna Snellgrove


3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
2 cups flour
1 small box instant vanilla pudding mix
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup milk chocolate chips
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup red and green M&M candies

1. In a large bowl, cream the butter, brown sugar, and sugar for 1-2 minutes until fluffy. Add vanilla and egg and mix well.
2. In another bowl whisk together flour, vanilla pudding, baking soda, and salt.
3. Gradually mix dry ingredients into wet ingredients until incorporated. Stir in most of the chocolate chips. (Reserve a few chocolate chips and M&Ms for later). Cover and chill for at least an hour.
4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Very lightly grease a baking sheet. Roll cookie dough into balks and place on baking sheet. Gently press remaining chocolate chips and the M&Ms into the cookie dough balls. (This makes sure you can see the chips and M&Ms after they bake).
5. Bake for 9-12 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling completely.
