Holly Jolly Chocolate Cookies
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
¾ cup brown sugar
¼ cup white sugar
1 (3.4 oz) package chocolate instant pudding
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon cocoa powder
2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
5 ounces white chocolate or almond bark, melted
Red and green sprinkles
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line baking sheets with parchment.
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 and mix each one thoroughly; stir in the vanilla.
Turn the mixer to low and slowly add the cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and flour.
Use a large spoon to stir in the chocolate chips.
Use a 2 tablespoon scoop to drop the cookies onto the prepared sheets.
Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes or until the cookies are set. Cool on wire racks.
Once cooled, melt the white chocolate. Dip one side of each cookie into the white chocolate and place on a lined baking sheet. While the chocolate is still wet, add sprinkles to make a holly shape. Set aside until chocolate is hardened, then store in an airtight container.
