Pudding M&M Cookies

Classic pudding cookies are soft, chewy, and oh-so-cheerful with a sprinkling of M&Ms for spring and Easter. Super simple - perfect for kids in the kitchen! 


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar 
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar 
  • 1 package (3.4 oz) instant vanilla pudding mix 
  • 2 eggs at room temperature
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups M&Ms


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 C). Prepare baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper, and set aside. 
  • Mix flour and baking soda in a small bowl, and stir with a fork or whisk to combine. Set aside.
  • Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter, brown sugar, and white sugar together on medium-high until creamed, 2-3 minutes. Add the pudding mix, followed by the eggs and vanilla, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed to ensure mixture is evenly combined. Sprinkle the flour mixture over the top, then mix on low speed just until flour is incorporated. Stir in the M&Ms by hand.
  • Drop cookies by rounded tablespoons onto prepared cookie sheets, and bake for 10-12 minutes, until the centers are just set and the edges are golden brown. Allow to cool on the pan for about 10 minutes, then remove to wire racks to cool completely.
