Peppermint Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies are made with crushed candy canes, pudding mix, peppermint extract and chocolate chips - perfect for the holidays!Peppermint Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies are so fun to make around the holidays. You all know how much I love chocolate chip cookies, but I thought it would be fun to put a little spin on this classic recipe and add a little holiday flavor. I absolutely love cookies that have pudding in them because it just makes the consistency so soft which is an absolute requirement for me when making cookies.

My kids don’t normally like peppermint very much but they were devouring these cookies, even though they have a fairly strong peppermint flavor! You don’t have to add the food coloring, but I think it makes the cookies look a little bit more festive. We have also tried these with white chocolate chips instead of the semi-sweet – I prefer the taste of the semi-sweet chocolate paired with the peppermint but the white chocolate chips look really pretty!

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened (1 stick)
  • 1 egg

  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour

  • red food coloring (about 10-15 drops)
  • 1/3 cup crushed peppermint candy canes (I used about 15 of the small ones)
  • 1 1/2 cups semi-sweet 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.

  4. Add in chocolate chips and crushed candy canes.
  5. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet.
