Butterscotch Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Butterscotch Chocolate Chunk Cookies



This post almost didn’t happen today! But boy am I glad it did! I am being 100% truthful when I say these are the best cookies I’ve ever made. Maybe even the best I’ve eaten! Big claim huh?

They’re chewy, chunky, sweet and just perfect.




There are two reasons they nearly didn’t happen. 

1) I’m so busy still with the launch of my Etsy shop Holly’s Lollies (Please go over and like it’s facebook page! It’s looking kind of lonely). I haven’t had time to go and buy ingredients or think of a recipe I want to make.

2) The heat. The soul crushing, life stopping humidity. It’s been beautiful weather here in the UK for the past two weeks, but it was starting to get humid. Really humid. Last night it rained and it rained a lot. I walked out of the door this morning expecting the rain to have cleared the heat a bit. Instead I was hit with an absolute wall of humidity.  The kind that makes you want to lie on your back and do nothing, all day.




Speaking of rain, last night we had the loudest thunder storm I’ve ever heard. I woke up in the middle of the night disorientated and not quite sure what was going on. Of course the most obvious assumption to make was that the world was ending. 

The world was ending and I hadn’t baked in days!  What if I didn’t go to baking heaven? What if the big chef in the sky didn’t think I was dedicated enough?  The world was going to end and I had no cookies or cake to eat whilst the sky set on fire and the sea froze. 

This is honestly what worried me. 

I’m so sad.




Anyway moving on, today I was making a Holly’s Lollies order and pottering around the kitchen trying to find some silver sprinkles, and I came across some  butterscotch Angel Delight. I think for anyone that doesn’t live in the UK you would call this pudding.

Now pudding cookies have been around forever and they are a big thing on the internet, but I never thought I could make them, because we don’t have pudding in the UK.  That was until the lovely Tash over at The Velvet Moon Baker made Strawberry Pudding Cookies with Angel Delight! After that I knew I had to make them.  I would find the time!




I tinkered with her recipe a little bit,  using butterscotch pudding and chocolate chips as well as some soft brown sugar. 




So if the world ends tonight, I have cookies to eat and I have baked something yummy. Big chef in the sky, I’ll be your pastry chef. As long as you don’t mind that I crossed over the dark side and used pudding in my cookies!

    These are my absolute go-to cookie now – I’ve made them with heaps of different flavours of pudding mix (Coconut ice and butterscotch are the favourites so far) and lots of different add-ins. Thanks for the super recipe!

    I’m glad that you were able to post this today and that you didn’t go to cookie/cake heaven without me! Now that wouldn’t be good!
    I made cookies yesterday with butterscotch chips that my kids said they didn’t like, but once they were in the cookies they didn’t even know! Perfect way to get rid of odds and ends in my baking cupboard. :) I’ve only made one batch of cookies with pudding before and I love them….I’m sure your are delicious! :)
