I LOVE a happy accident, especially when it involves food. I am not a huge chocolate chip cookie fan but Rob loves them, so whenever he wants them he makes them. The other day I was reading through blogs and I found a recipe for Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies from Chef in Training, I showed them to Rob and he wanted to make them. The kids and I decided we would make them for a welcome home treat. The only problem was I thought I had vanilla pudding but all I had was chocolate so I decided to see what would happen if I used chocolate pudding.
Magic happened that's what.
I also added in Coconut, so unless you are my sister who is allergic or my brother in law who grew up on an island and doesn't like the coconut here in the states, add it in it is DELISH!!
