Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Pudding Cookies

These Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Pudding Cookies are some of the best pudding cookies yet! Chocolate and peanut butter make for a rich cookie, especially when filled with chocolate covered marshmallows and chocolate chips!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Pudding Cookies

My cat loves my husband. And when I say love, I don’t mean “he feeds me and changes my litter box” love. I mean she luuuuuuuuuuuuvs him. With i’s dotted with pink puffy hearts and Mrs. Callie Kern doodles and all that.

Every night, we climb into bed and watch approximately 5 minutes of The Soup or No Reservations before we conk out. Callie lies on his side of the bed, waiting. As soon as my husband lays down, her drooling, eye watering, purr-fest begins. If he so much as touches my arm instead of petting her she shoots me a look that says, “I hope you die in the night so I can get an extra meal.” She then screams at him and urges his hand back onto her chin.

My husband is often traveling during the week, and Callie just isn’t the same without him. I try to stand in for him. I climb into bed and call for her. I pat the bed next to me and pet her a little. She gets all sandofish and goes to sit in the opposite corner, facing the wall. I’m just not her love interest, I guess.

Now, the dog…well. That’s another post.

Does anyone else have really strange animals? It can’t just be us, right? Because what does that say about me?

{Don’t answer that.}

You know what I luuuuuuuuuuv with heart dotted i’s?

Cookies. Pudding cookies. With peanut butter and chocolate and marshmallows.

Chocolate Peanut Butter Marshmallow Pudding Cookies

I made these cookies awhile ago – after Christmas. And I never posted them! I realized I needed to ASAP – because they use Peepsters. Have you ever seen those candies? They come out at Christmas and Easter, and are made by the people who make Peeps. They’re chocolate covered marshmallows and are SO good.

You all know how much I love pudding cookies. I’m addicted to them! They come out perfect and soft every single time. For these cookies I used chocolate pudding mix, and I subbed peanut butter for some of the butter. Best. Decision. Ever! It’s like a rich chocolatey, peanut buttery cookie all rolled into one! Then, for good measure, I added chocolate chips and chopped Peepsters. They’re like a chocolate fluffernutter cookie!

So go on out and get yourself a few bags of Peepsters. I said a “few” because you’ll want to eat one bag by itself. Then make these cookies.

    Those cookies look to-die-for good! And our cat, Bitty, big fat pink puffy heart LOVES my hubby, too! She’ll head butt him and scootch up just as close as she can to him to sit with him. I’m not a very good substitute either. Maybe I just need to bake her these cookies? :)

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2013 at 6:35 am

      If only it were that easy! :) Thanks Keri!

    These could not look more delicious…. I need to hire someone to make these for me after my half marathon Sunday :)

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2013 at 6:34 am

      I wish I could make them for you! :) Good luck in your run!

  4. Jocelyn @BruCrew Life posted on March 22, 2013 at 5:58 am (#)

    There are no words because I am sitting here with my mouth open drooling at the melted marshmallow coming out of the cookies. These look insanely good!!! And that is too funny about the cat…we used to have 2 cats that loved my hubby too, no matter how many times he pushed them away!!!

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2013 at 6:34 am

      LOL, it must be all cats! And maybe men? ;) Thanks Jocelyn! Have a great Friday!

    Oh.my.geez! So I have the routine that I normally read through blogs in alphabetical order because I’m OCD like that but I checked twitter first and had to come straight here this morning… These look delicious and I can’t wait to try them!! Amazing Dorothy!

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2013 at 6:33 am

      Thanks Emily! I’m OCD like that too. I have to go IN ORDER in my reader. I’m the same with magazines. I cannot flip to the middle first. :)

    Ha, our cat is the same way. Whoever started the rumor that cats are aloof clearly hasn’t met our little ones. And oh my goodness, these cookies! Heaven.

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2013 at 6:32 am

      Thanks Jen! Glad I’m not alone… :)

    OMG THESE LOOK SO GOOD I JUST CANT STAND IT! XD

    Chocolate, pb, marshmallows, cookies….*sigh of happiness*

    I’m also super sorry that your cat is so possessive of your hubby, that is so not nice to you. As far as I can tell weird behavior seems to be normal for pets :P

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2013 at 6:32 am

      Well that’s good…at least it’s not just me! Thanks Kayle! :)

    Wow these amazing, Dorothy! I have yet to try pudding cookies but I can never say no to super soft cookies!

      They always stay super soft – that’s why I love them so much! Thanks for visiting!

    i have no idea chocolate covered peepsters existed! now I have to go hunt them down this weekend at Target. Oh and pudding cookies? I love how gorgeous they are each time. They look wonderful Dorothy!

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2013 at 11:30 am

      Yes you must find them Sally! I got mine at Target. :) And pudding cookies are so great because they are perfect every time!

  11. Kristin posted on March 22, 2013 at 7:49 am (#)

    I told Scott he better have a big basket of Peeps for me on Easter. He said, “Yuck”. That means I get to eat them all myself, I guess.
    I still need to try the whole pudding cookie thing. I better hurry. The fad could be almost over.

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2013 at 11:28 am

      Oh yes, these are perfect for you. He best get you a truckload, after your month of no candy!

    Ok, so I know I said you outdid yourself with the bacon maple cinnamon rolls, but these cookies MAY just top that recipe. Holy moley, I can’t believe I’ve never thought of this. My all time three favorite things are chocolate, peanut butter, and marshmallows (or marshmallow fluff), so these cookies have my stomach growllllling! Must find chocolate cover peeps and make these asap!!

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2013 at 11:26 am

      They are SO good together, these three ingredients. I could eat them all the time! :) Thanks Elaine!

  14. Summer @ Mallow and Co posted on March 22, 2013 at 8:58 am (#)

    I need to go find these chocolate covered marshmallows you’re talking about. I love these cookies, the name alone makes them awesome! And that’s great about your cat, ha ha, animals are crazy sometimes

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2013 at 11:23 am

      Oooh, I can just imagine the Krispie Treat you’d make with them! :)

  15. Kathy posted on March 22, 2013 at 9:04 am (#)

    Wow! These look good! I have not seen these Peepsters! I think I need to find them so I can try these cookies!

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2013 at 11:22 am

      One of my favorite Easter candies, The Peepster. I found mine at Target!

  16. Susan posted on March 22, 2013 at 9:13 am (#)

    I saw the chocolate peeps and thought I’d do cupcakes with them…but I love this combination. You must have the same “gene” I do for mixing ingredients, XOXO

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2013 at 11:22 am

      Totally! The best combo, ever. :)

  17. Molly posted on March 22, 2013 at 9:48 am (#)

    Peepsters are the best! I buy them in large quantities right after Easter when they are 30% off and try to make them last all year. Sometimes I just stick them in the middle of a wad of sugar cookie dough and bake. These look extra yummy!

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2013 at 11:22 am

      That sounds good Molly! I need to stock up. :)

  18. Monique posted on March 22, 2013 at 12:38 pm (#)

    Hi Dorothy! I live in New Zealand and I love your blog! I can’t wait to try this recipe, although we don’t have peeps here so I’ll have to find a substitute.

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2013 at 7:03 pm

      You can use mini marshmallows! Freeze them first, before putting them in the cookies. :) They may dissolve a little, but should stay semi-intact!

  19. tanya posted on March 22, 2013 at 12:41 pm (#)

    That is too funny Dorothy! I’ll be honest, I am not a cat person. I blame my mother in law’s cat who absolutely hates me. She’s nice to everyone else, but bites me!! Love these cookies although I’ve never seen Peepsters!

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2013 at 7:07 pm

      I was a cat person, now I’m not so much. Probably because my cat is insane… :)

  20. MicheleW posted on March 22, 2013 at 1:02 pm (#)

    Our Vet told us somehow we always change our cats into dogs. I think cats just like to do mind games. You know how they stare at something until you turn your head, then walk away.

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 22nd, 2013 at 7:01 pm

      Yeah, my cat is beyond creepy. I swear, she WILL eat me if I die alone in the house…. ;)

    Haha! That is so funny about your cat. My one dog is like that with my hubby. We can’t even have her around when my hubby is playing with the kids or she gets snippy, like she just wants him for herself. So weird, lol! These cookies have my mouth watering. Love you added Peepsters in them!

    • Dorothy Kern replied on March 23rd, 2013 at 7:25 am

      My dog is just attached to us all, depending on what she wants. The cat is just weird, lol. Thanks so much Jennifer!

    I just found this recipe today – as I was pinning the copycat Famous Amos cookies – I just wanted to tell you – this looks awesome. Cannot wait to get me some chocolate covered peeps and try this. I love your site!! And, I also have a Cali – except she is a boxer (tiny – was the runt of the litter and only weighs about 40 lbs at 15 months old) Anyway – here’s my weird pet story – I hold out two different treats for her, she sniffs them both, sometimes gives a tiny little lick, then picks the one she wants to eat. And, she does not come back for the other one – its hilarious. Cannot wait to try both recipes! ♥

    • Dorothy Kern replied on August 13th, 2013 at 6:20 pm

      Thanks for the pin Donna! I cannot wait for those marshmallows to come back out! Cali sounds like Ginger – ever since we babysat my MIL’s dog, she won’t take her treat from me. I have to throw it at her. LOL!

  39. Shekinah posted on August 15, 2013 at 1:40 am (#)

    Funny about the cat. My cat (she) was so super attached to my dad whereas the other one who was my baby (he) was so attached to me and all things olive and chocolate. He used to bite by dad if he so much as even raised his voice at us. And he would sneakily love to get at the cookie jar when my mom wasn’t around. But he knew I’d always offer him his bit of the cookie first so he always asked me for it :P

    • Dorothy Kern replied on August 15th, 2013 at 7:40 am

      Cats are so funny! Mine used to bite me when my daughter was a baby, if she irritated her too much!

    Hi Dorathy, I wonder if the egg can be replaced by other ingredient? I am allergy to egg.. But I really want to try making these!

      Hm, I’ve never made cookies without eggs before, but I found this site: http://chefinyou.com/egg-substitutes-cooking/ that has some things you can sub for all different baked goods! Let me know if you sub something and if it works!

    Did you use regular one instant pudding?

    • Dorothy Kern replied on February 26th, 2014 at 6:40 pm

      I normally use instant for pudding cookies. The small box, not sugar-free.
