  • 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1.2 cup instant pudding mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 cup baking M&M candies
  • 1/2 cup chocolate chips


  1. Whisk together flour, instant pudding mix (just the dry mix), baking soda, and salt then set aside. 

  2. In a large bowl with an electric mixer or in a stand mixer beat butter with brown sugar and sugar. Add in egg and vanilla extract and continue to beat until creamy and well combined. 

  3. Slowly mix in dry ingredients making sure to scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Mix until combined then fold in 3/4 cup of M&M candies and chocolate chips. Chill for 2-3 hours.
