  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Whisk together the flour and baking soda in a bowl.
  2. In a large bowl, mash the butter and margarine together until thoroughly blended, and mix in the white sugar, brown sugar, and instant pudding mix. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract until the mixture is smooth and creamy. Mix in the flour in several additions, then mix in the chocolate chips. Dough will be stiff.
  3. Drop by tablespoon onto an ungreased, nonstick baking sheet, about 2 inches apart; flatten the cookies slightly.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until light brown and still soft on top, 8 to 10 minutes. Do not overbake. Allow to cool for 1 minute on the baking sheets before removing and cooling completely on racks.

These are fabulous - soft, moist and so yummy. I have several other chocolate chip cookie recipes; this is my hubby's favorite. We can't keep our hands out of the cookie jar.

awesome! first chocolate chip recipe that actually looked/tasted like chocolate chips that I've made in my life! don't overmix and i used all margarine, cooked for 6-7 minutes. GREAT!

I was not a fan of these. The texture was off somehow (probably the pudding) and it was chewier than normal. Not gooey chewy (which I like) but just off somehow. Also the flavors were a bit b...

I used chocolate pudding & about 1/2 bag of choc. chips. They turned out WONDERFUL! I told my husband they should be called "PMS Cookies" - they were so full of chocolate....just what the doct...

Mine turned out cakey. Not for me. Notably- my kids have eaten a TON and love them!
