Can you believe we have just a hair over 10 weeks left of the year?! In honor of that nutty fact, that’s my newly-compiled bucket list for the remainder of 2013! I’ve never made a bucket list before, so I’m not totally sure I did it right… it looks an awful lot like a to-do list to me. But I’m going to try and make it happen, and see if I can end 2013 on a healthier/happier/more well-rounded note than the way I’ve spent 3/4 of it!

Here’s to New Years resolutions in the middle of October!

PS- also in honor of the fact that we have officially reached the middle of October, this is my last Halloween recipe for this year! And really, it’s only Halloween-ish because I used the orange Halloween Oreos. But you could, of course, use any kind you’d like :)

Double Dark Chocolate Oreo Pudding Cookies


  • 1 cup butter, cold
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 Tbsp hot water
  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup Hershey's Special Dark Cocoa Powder
  • 3.75 oz Chocolate Pudding Mix
  • 1 cup Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Chips
  • 2 cups Oreos, crumbled or rough chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Using a stand mixer, beat the butter until smooth.
  3. Add the brown sugar and sugar. Beat for 1-2 minutes, until nearly creamy.
  4. Add the eggs, one at a time and mixing in between additions.
  5. Dissolve the baking soda in the tablespoon of water. Add both the baking soda and the vanilla to the mixer and mix well. Mix in the salt.
  6. Add the flour, cocoa powder, and pudding mix, and mix until dough forms.
  7. Mix in the chocolate chips and crushed oreos using a wooden spoon or spatula.
  8. Scoop dough by heaping tablespoons onto a parchment lined or silicon lined baking sheet, 2 inches apart.
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are set. Let cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before removing to wire rack to cool completely.


If you don't have a stand mixer, you can certainly soften the butter first. Just be sure to chill the dough for 30 minutes before baking!

I pressed some extra Oreo crumbles and chocolate chips onto the tops of the cookie dough balls before baking... just to make them look extra yummy! But that's totally optional :)

Use Hershey's Special Dark Chocolate Pudding Mix to make this recipe TRIPLE Dark Chocolate!

Don’t miss a bite!

    I hope you accomplish your list. Sounds like you deserve some much needed time off :)

    They look so dark and rich, fudgy perfection. I think your bucket list is great…but I work 20 hour days. I cannot imagine working 20 hrs in a week. If you figure that out, PLEASE tell me how!!! :) Pinned!

    Love how soft and gooey these cookies are. The Halloween Oreos add great visual appeal to these — yum! And wow, are there really only 10 weeks before Christmas. That is scary…

    These cookies look amazing. I love that you compiled a list to accomplish by the end of the year. I should do that, too!

    I just made cookies very similar to this last night for a bake sale today! However, I only added Oreos, not chocolate chips and the chocolatier the better so yours look delicious!

    These are definitely on my “To Do” list! I don’t remember seeing Hershey’s Pudding mixes in my Shop Rite. Can I substitute either Jello Instant Pudding or My-T-Fine Instant Pudding mixes? Thank you for all the lusciousness!

    You can do it!!! And really? That’s all the time left before the end of the year…yikes! I should make a list too!!! Or maybe I should just make some chocolate cookies because I can’t get these out of my mind now!!!

    I’m still working on my New Year’s resolutions from maybe 10 years back–er, or at least I was, until I saw this post. Helloooo, fudginess :) guess I’ll have to resolve this year to be better at keeping my resolutions. These look amazing!

  14. Renee @ Awesome on $20 posted on October 18, 2013 at 1:39 am (#)

    That’s an impressive list. I’m pretty sue if I made a list like that, it would involve a lot more eating. Especially of these cookies.

    These look so amazing!!!

    Oh my goodness – if I could accomplish one of those, I think I’d be a happy girl! :) I think I’ll just sit back and eat a batch of these cookies instead. :)

  18. tiffany posted on October 28, 2013 at 6:46 pm (#)

    just curious, how many cookies does this recipe make?

    • Ashton posted on October 28, 2013 at 11:04 pm (#)

  19. Jacqui posted on December 14, 2013 at 4:51 pm (#)

    Hi! Should is the butter salted or unsalted?

    • Ashton posted on December 17, 2013 at 9:41 pm (#)

      I like to use salted butter, but you can use either that you prefer.
