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

2 eggs

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.
