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.
