Chocolate Peanut Butter Pudding Cookies

I really wanted to make these Chocolate Chunk Peppermint Pudding Cookies, but I couldn’t find the Andes Peppermint Crunch baking chips.  Has anyone seen them in the Greater Boston area?  Maybe I am not looking in the right places.

Anyway, I was heading to a gathering this weekend and wanted to make something.  I had all of the other ingredients on hand, so I substituted a bag of Nestle Peanut Butter and Chocolate morsels for the peppermint chips.  I knew they wouldn’t be nearly as festive, but cookies are usually welcomed in any case.

Maybe I’ve just been spoiled by having so many awesome bakers among my family and friends, but I was disappointed by these cookies.  Of course, it isn’t really fair to substitute a central ingredient in a recipe and then complain!  The cookies are fine, but nothing special.  The pudding mix gives them an interesting texture, so the cookies don’t fall squarely in either the “crispy” or “chewy” camps.  I almost feel silly trying a new cookie recipe when I have so many amazing ones already on the blog, so next time I’ll go back to one of my favorites!

  1. I did a search on where to find the Andes Peppermint Crunch baking chip and most people said they found them at Walmart or Target. It may be worth a look .
