Chocolate Valentine Pudding Cookies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Did you happen to see the Nestle Valentine chips that were out this month? They were a mixture of half dark chocolate and half red vanilla chips. My mom gave me a bag a few days after Valentine’s Day, but that didn’t stop me from experimenting with them. I took my mom’s pudding chip cookie recipe and substituted instant chocolate pudding mix for the french vanilla and Valentine chips for the semi-sweet. The cookies could not have turned out any better. They were incredibly rich, but the red vanilla chips were just enough to keep them from becoming overwhelmingly chocolatey. My daughter Julia LOVED the chips themselves; she had several tablespoons before I cut her off. After she taste-tested one of the cookies, she was hooked. I only wish I had known to find them to stock up before they were discontinued for the season. 🙂
