Servings 3 dozen


  • 2 cups All-Purpose Flour
  • ¼ cup Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 3.9 oz Instant Flavored Chocolate Pudding
  • 1 cup Vegetable Shortening
  • ¼ cup Granulated Sugar
  • ¾ cup Light Brown Sugar, lightly packed
  • 2 Large Eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 4 oz Dark Chocolate Bar, chopped into small chunks
  • 1 cup M&Ms, use any color combination or go with holiday themed colors


  • Preheat oven to 375ºF and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
  • Break up the bar of dark chocolate into small chunks using a well-sharpened knife and cutting board, or your hands. Set to the side.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, unsweetened cocoa powder, baking soda, and instant chocolate pudding. Set to the side.
  • Using your hand mixer or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the vegetable shortening, granulated sugar, and light brown sugar together on medium-high speed until well blended.
  • Add in the eggs and vanilla extract, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.
  • Reduce the mixer speed to low and gradually add in your whisked dry mixture until well blended.
  • Using a spatula, fold in the chunks of dark chocolate and M&Ms.
  • With a spoon or cookie scoop (I used my 1 ½ tablespoon or medium size scoop), drop the cookie dough onto the parchment lined baking sheets and space them 1 ½ inches apart.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375ºF.
  • Remove from the oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire cooling rack.
  • Keep the cookies stored in an airtight container with a slice of bread for up to a week.
