Only 4 days left until Christmas! I can’t believe how quickly this year has come and gone. I am getting so excited for Christmas and to make another batch of these Chocolate Chip Christmas Cookies.

These Chocolate Chip Christmas Cookies are perfect for serving over the holidays! Super soft, these cookies are made with vanilla pudding mix! I like to slightly under bake the cookies for an extra soft center.

The dough does require some chilling time. This helps to keep the dough from spreading in the oven. It also helps to make a full flavored, thicker cookie.

How to make Chocolate Chip Christmas Cookies

  • Make Batter: Add butter and both sugars to a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Add in vanilla and egg. Mix until combined. Make sure to scrap the sides of the bowl throughout. Meanwhile add flour, pudding mix and baking soda to a medium bowl. Whisk to combine. Slowly add in the dry ingredients to the wet in two parts. Fold in chocolate chips and M & M’s.
  • Chill Dough: Portion out 12 cookies and place them on a plate. Place in the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight. Note: You must chill dough. If not the cookies will spread!
  • Preheat Oven: When you are ready to bake preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Bake: Place in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes.
  • Cool: Allow them to cool for 2-3 minutes on the baking sheet then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Store: Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for 3-5 days. You can also freeze the cookies for up to 3-4 months.
