Devil’s Food Cookies

These cookies don’t just have cocoa powder in the mix, but they also have Devil’s Food instant pudding and milk chocolate chips in them (triple the chocolate, triple the fun!). They came out with the texture and consistency of a cookie but they looked kind of like a brownie, so much so that I was tempted to call these “brookies.”

Devil’s Food Cookies

Adapted from Lovin’ From the Oven

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup Dutch cocoa powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 (3.4 ounce) package instant Devil’s Food pudding mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/4 cups unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 2 cups sugar, plus more for dipping
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 (12 ounce) bag milk chocolate chips
  1. Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, instant pudding mix, and salt. Set aside
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter, 2 cups sugar, and eggs on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add vanilla, and mix to combine. Gradually add dry ingredients, and combine with mixer on low speed. Cover bowl with plastic wrap, and chill until dough is firm, about 1 hour
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with Silpat baking mats. Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Dip top of each ball into sugar. Place on prepared baking sheets about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake until set, about 8 minutes. Cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely

Post-baked. I told you they looked like brownies!
