Chocolate Pudding Mint Cookies
(adapted from this recipe)

1 cup butter (2 sticks) - softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 (3.9oz) box instant chocolate fudge pudding
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups Guittard green mint chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Cream together butter and sugar.  Add in the eggs and mix well.  Next, add in the vanilla and pudding mix and mix well.  Gradually add in the flour, baking soda, and salt and mix until well incorporated.  Finally, add in the mint chips and mix until just combined.

Place the dough in tablespoon sized balls on the baking sheets.  Bake for 12 minutes or until the edges barely begin to brown.  Let cool for at least 4 minutes on baking sheet and then transfer to a wire cooling rack.  

Once cool, they're ready to eat and trust me, these will go fast!!
