Spooky Halloween Oreo Pudding Cookies

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One of the things I love about Autumn are the variety of specialty snacks and baking goods that appear. On my last trip to Target, I couldn’t resist purchasing the orange creme centered Halloween Oreos and the Nestle Toll House semi-sweet chocolate and orange colored morsels.

So what to do with these delicious and eye-pleasing Halloween treats? Put them in pudding chip cookies, of course! I doubled my mom’s pudding chip cookie recipe, adding extra vanilla extract, using the Halloween morsels in place of the all semi-sweet chocolate, and adding two dozen chopped Halloween Oreo cookies to the batter. The orange creme inside the Oreos melds into the cookie dough, giving it a festive and light orange tint. The brightly orange colored morsels pop out to the eyes and give a pleasantly soft cremy texture in relation to the black crunchy chopped Oreos.

After a wonderful taste-testing experience with my family, I sent these spooky cookies off to school with my math teacher husband. The students loved them and begged for extra, so what more could I ask for?  🙂
