Mint Chocolate Chip Pudding Cookies

Howdy Partners,

I am writing this on Saturday evening so I can get a quick jump on my posts for the week.  I figured if I did this now, for one I wouldn’t snack and two I can focus on exercise and making healthy dinners throughout the week!  After my Saturday indulgence, I am going to start my week out right, starting with a wholesome healthy breakfast!  But today I do not have a healthy breakfast for you, that will be tomorrow, I think?  But I have my Saturday indulgence to share with you!

See these little Guys?  They are extremely dangerous!  Dangerous I tell ya!!  All day they taunted me, telling me to eat me, eat me!!  If you ask me to eat something, I feel the need to say ok, after all how can I say no?  So I ate one, then two, then three, then I thought these taste really familiar what is that taste?  Eat four, eat five and finally on my sixth one, I realized what these cookies taste like.  Ready for this…

They taste like Girl Scout Thin Mints!  I can’t believe I accidentally recreated a cookie that tastes like Girl Scout Thin Mints!  I feel like I discovered a million dollars or something!!  I have to thank Little Jenny for this.  Before she went to work, I asked her if she wanted me to make her any cookies for her and her boyfriend Saturday night and she said, yah, Mint Chocolate Chips.  I think we are all on a mint kick this week!  I wouldn’t have discovered these gems if it wasn’t for her.  I don’t know if I should love her or hate her for this!!  When she came home from work, she took a bite of the cookie and said “Oh My Gosh” with a mouth full of cookies.  Can I take the whole batch with me?  I was happy to give them to her, because if they were here right now, I’d be eating one while I was typing this!!  Just look at them!!

See what I mean about dangerous?  At least the cookies are only 59 calories each!  But having 6 of them, kind of adds up!!  This recipe is also very easy to make!  It’s a basic batch of cookies, but the secret ingredient is Jello Sugar Free Instant Pudding, Fudge flavor!!  I never put pudding in my cookies before, I’ve done cake batter but never pudding.  I am pretty surprised on how well they turn out!!  I am so glad I tried this!!!  You have to try pudding in cookies, it’s crazy good.  It adds a whole new dimension to your cookie!
