I'm sort of on a roll with this pudding cookie thing. I've made chocolate peanut butter pudding cookies and red velvet pudding cookies along with the classic recipe, so when I stumbled across both Almond Joy and Mounds instant pudding, I knew I had to give them a try.
Today I'm sharing the recipe for Mounds pudding cookies. If you love chocolate and coconut (i.e., if you love Mounds), you're totally going to want to make these. Like, tomorrow.
These Mounds pudding cookies combine fudgey Mounds-flavored instant pudding mix, semisweet chocolate chips (you could easily use dark chocolate) and coconut for a cookie that simply must be eaten immediately upon removal from the cookie sheet.
Rolling them in the coconut is optional, but I loved the added coconut flavor, especially when some of the shredded coconut got all toasty.
I'm rather enjoying mixing and matching pudding and mix-ins; I bet you'll see a few more cookie recipes on the blog!
