  • 1 1/2 sticks butter, softened (3/4 cup)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 2 cups all purpose flour, spooned into measuring cup
  • 1 (3.4 ounce) box vanilla instant pudding
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup semi sweet Holiday morsles (They have chocolate, red & green chips)
  • 1 cup white chocolate chip
  • 1 cup red and green M&M's


  • Beat together butter and sugar until fluffy and smooth. Add in vanilla and egg and beat until combined.
  • In a bowl mix together flour, pudding mix, baking soda and salt. Gradually add into butter mixture and beat until combined.
  • Add in Holiday morsels (or semi sweet chocolate), white chocolate chips and M&M's until combined.
  • Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Dough will be really firm. Spoon out dough and form into balls.
  • Place dough on baking sheet with parchment paper and and at 350 degrees for 9 to 11 minutes.
  • Remove and top each cookie with a few white chocolate chips & M&M's while warm. Leave cookies on baking sheet to cool.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature


I form about 1 inch dough balls and it makes about 28 cookies.
