I tried pudding cookies for the very first time a couple of weeks ago!
I know.
Pudding Cookies were so two months ago. I’m a little behind the times.
But after watching my dear friends, Jocelyn and Nikki, crank out recipe after recipe of gorgeous looking pudding cookies, I finally cracked.
And since I apparently only ever have one ingredient in my pantry: I went with Nutella.
Are there other ingredients?? I can’t find them.

I thought these cookies were just as chewy and delicious as all of those beautiful photos promised they would be. And the best part of all is how many variations you can create!! The recipe seriously supplies a never ending list of cookie possibilities…

Nutella Pudding Cookies

Adapted from: Inside BruCrew Life**Ingredients:

  • 3/4 c. butter, softened
  • 1/2 c. Nutella
  • 1/2 c. sugar
  • 1/2 c. brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 1/4 c. flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 small box instant chocolate pudding
  • 2 c. dark chocolate chips*


  1. In a large bowl cream together the butter, Nutella, and sugars. Add the eggs and vanilla.
  2. Add the flour, baking soda, and salt. Try not to over mix.
  3. Add the chocolate chips.
  4. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a baking sheet
  5. Bake at 350º for 9-10 minutes until edges are set. Let cool on pan for 3-4 minutes. Makes about 2 1/2 dozen.

*I think this would be awesome substituting 1 c. hazelnuts for 1 c. chocolate chips.
**I know I was going off of two recipes when I made these, but I can’t seem to find the second one. I’m confident that these will turn out well going off of Jocelyn‘s recipe alone, but just as an FYI…

  1. These look amazing! The ingredients list has “1 small box instant chocolate pudding,” but the instructions never mention it. When do we add the pudding?

  2. Omg, made these as soon as I found them and they are delicious!!!! I didn’t have any hazelnuts like you suggested but substituted 1/2 cup chopped walnuts instead and they were awesome! Thank you for this recipe!!
