Day 12 of 12 Days of Christmas Goodies
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.Grab Our Button & the Blog Hop Code if you wish to display the Linky on your own Blog.
