Ingredients

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, full-fat, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 large egg, at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 package (3.7 to 3.9* ounces) chocolate fudge pudding mix, unprepared Note 1
  • 1 package (18 ounces) Betty Crocker Delights Brownie Mix, Supreme Chocolate Chunk unprepared
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips (semi-sweet, dark, or white chips will work -- use your favorite!)
  • Optional: sprinkle of sea salt (such as fleur de sel) if you like salty sweet!

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a sheet pan by lining it with parchment paper or a Silpat liner.
  • In a large bowl (stand mixer recommended, a hand mixer will also work), cream together the cream cheese and butter. Both should be slightly soft, but not melted. Add in the egg and vanilla extract. Mix well.
  • Beat in the brownie mix and pudding mix until just combined.
  • Gently fold in the chocolate chips. The dough is thick and sticky! If it's too hard to work with, cover and refrigerate for 10 minutes and then continue. (See Note 1.)
  • Form large balls of dough and then press the balls to make cookie shapes.
  • Bake for 8-12 minutes and then remove from the oven. (Baking time may vary based on the size of your cookies and actual oven temperature.) It's best to slightly underbake these cookies to keep them soft, fudgy, and chewy! If desired, top the cookies with a few more chocolate chips (just to make them look pretty!).
  • Allow cookies to continue to "bake" on the cookie sheet for an additional 3-4 minutes before removing them to a cooling rack. If desired, add a sprinkle of salt to the cookies while warm.

Notes

Note 1: Pudding mix: If you use a pudding mix that is 3.7 ounces you'll need to chill the dough for about 20-30 minutes before baking. My favorite pudding mix to use in these cookies is the Godiva® Instant Chocolate Pudding Mix. If you use a pudding mix that is 3.9 ounces you won't need to chill the dough at all.
