12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS GOODIES (Day 12): White Chocolate Candy Cane Pudding Cookies

Day 12 of 12 Days of Christmas Goodies
White Chocolate Candy Cane Pudding Cookies

I found this amazing flavor of Instant Pudding "Candy Cane", I bought them a few months ago and I had no idea what I was going to do with them. I searched for something? anything? with Candy Cane Pudding in it. Nothing came up! Nothing at all! I finally came across a few cake recipes with pudding in the mix and decided maybe that would be the answer, but it never came to be. And then I saw these cookies! Cookies with pudding and cake mix. I knew I just had to try it. (I am not so good at making up my own recipes, but I gave it a shot) WOW AMAZING TERRIFIC.... these cookies are out-of-this-world DELICIOUS! I actually ran back to the store today to see if they had anymore Candy Cane Pudding (and they did)! I picked up 6 more boxes! I WILL be making just a few more batches of these for several parties, gatherings and to make sure I have a fresh batch for Christmas Day.

  13. Just made these and they are SO good. I could NOT find the candy cane pudding (& I'm too stubborn to pay the Amazon price) ANYWHERE. I looked in 7 different groceries/Walmarts/etc. in my town! I ended up using instant vanilla pudding and then with the vanilla extract I added 3/4 tsp of peppermint extract. I had to sprinkle a little red/green colored sugar, too, for some extra embellishment. :) Thanks for a fab recipe! Definitely a good choice to add to my holiday cookie gift trays!

      using the keywords 'JELL-O Instant Pudding Candy Cane 3.400 OZ'

      I found a HUGE display of it my K-Mart... this was after going to 9 different stores myself and also refusing to pay the EBAY or Amazon price. Good Luck. I can't wait to go home and make these tonight. My only question is What is the qty. that this recipe makes???
