It is cold outside! We’ve been plunged into sub-zero temperatures here for over a week!
It’s so easy to get down when the weather is so cold.
So I thought we’d brighten things up with some yummy, colorful confetti cookies! Because sprinkles make everything better. They even make frigid weather tolerable!
Plus, as an added bonus, I originally made these cookies and took the photos in the summer. Look at the lush green grass!
Oh, spring, please come quickly!
Confetti Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
½ cup brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
1 (3.4 oz) vanilla instant pudding
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
¾ cup chocolate chips
¾ cup mini M&Ms
½ cup sprinkles (I used a mix of nonpareils and jimmies)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line baking sheets with parchment or silicone mats.
Place the butter and sugars in the bowl of a stand mixer and beat until smooth and creamy. Add the pudding mix and mix until combined.
Add the eggs, one at a time, and mix each one thoroughly; stir in the vanilla.
Turn the mixer to low and slowly add the baking soda, salt, and flour.
Use a large spoon to stir in the M&Ms, sprinkles, and chocolate chips.
Use a 2 tablespoon scoop to drop the cookies onto the prepared sheets.
Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire racks and store in a tightly sealed container.
Makes about 36 cookies
