Mint Chocolate Pudding Cookies - Butter With A Side of BreadI’m a huge fan of the chocolate – mint combination and with St. Patrick’s Day coming up, well this is the perfect time to make them! The result is Andes mints in cookie form- they’ve got wonderful flavor and a lovely, soft texture. Enjoy!

Mint Chocolate Pudding Cookies

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened (1 stick)
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 small box instant vanilla pudding mix (3.4 oz)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp mint extract
  • 3 drops blue coloring + 10-15 drops green coloring
  • 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips*
  1. Cream together sugar and butter. Add egg, sour cream and pudding mix.
  2. In a small bowl, combine flour, salt & baking soda.
  3. Incorporate flour mixture into the pudding mixture and mix until well combined.  Add mint extract and food coloring until desired color is achieved.
  4. Add in chocolate chips. *I used 3/4 cup chocolate chunks, 3/4 cup regular chocolate chips and 1/2 cup Andes baking bits. Any combination is wonderful, but note that while the Andes mint baking pieces add an incredible flavor, they kind of disappear in the cookies. So add them in addition to the 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips, if you opt to put them in!
  5. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.
  6. Bake at 375 for 10 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and enjoy! Yields 3 dozen cookies.

    • This is a from scratch cookie recipe, so I haven't attempted to morph a cookie mix (of any kind!) into it. You can always just try adding some mint extract and extra chocolate to your cookie mix and see if that jazzes it up a bit!
  1. Have you tried using some brown sugar in these? Not replacing all the regular sugar but maybe about a 50/50 mix
    • I haven't- usually I replace regular granulated sugar with brown sugar if I'm trying to make my recipe sweeter with less sugar. (I hope that makes sense!) In this case, I feel like the chocolate adds enough sweetness, so I just try to keep the rest simple. You're welcome to try it though!
    • Use what you like! Some people think mint extract tastes like toothpaste, so they only use peppermint. I use both. :) I think peppermint extract gives a stronger mint flavor though, which I like.
      • I make a Bundt (Coffee) Cake that uses a cup or so of sour cream and it makes it so moist and dense, its amazing. I'll have to share the recipe sometime soon
    • Anna, did you try making this with a different pudding mix? I'd love to know how they came out. I thought about making them with chocolate pudding (because my family doesn't like mint) and leaving out the mint extract but I wasn't sure if I needed to substitute vanilla exact or not.
  2. Hi Jessica, I thought when I first saw this recipe posted on FB that I read you added chocolate chunks AND some Andes chopped mint candies, but now I can't find where I saw that! Am I dreaming I did?? BTW, can't wait to make them this week!!
  3. Had 4 college guys staying with us over St, Patrick's Day, so made these. Used 5 drops peppermint oil as I was out of extract . Guys said they were " da bomb!".
  4. This is wonderful. I never tried the cookies made using pudding mix so that will be a something new for me to test out. Thanks for sharing your recipe! P.S: Doesn't the cookie dough look like chocolate chip mint ice cream in that picture? :)
  5. I ust purchased a brand new kitchaid mixer and I am dying to find out how this recipe works with the mixer. Hubby loves mint chocolate chip flavored anything ..Fun recipe....I will try the pestcahio as I do not care for mint as much as hubby. Thank you for posting recipes ... looking forward to me shares.
    • MY favorite way to freeze cookies is to make balls of dough and freeze those! You can bake them and freeze the baked cookies too, but I love the fresh-baked taste! But yes, they freeze well wither way!
