With just a hint of pumpkin flavor, these chocolate chips cookies are perfect for fall. Soft and chewy and filled with chocolate chips and chocolate chunks.

  4. Add pudding mix, flour, baking soda, pumpkin pie spice and salt and mix until well combined.

UPDATED 10/25/2018: I haven’t been able to find the Jell-O brand Pumpkin Spice Pudding mix at Walmart or Target for the last couple years. But Walmart does carry this Royal Delights Pumpkin Spice Dessert Mix and it works great as a replacement in these cookies.


I love putting both semi sweet and milk chocolate chips in my cookies, but feel free to use one or the other. However, for these cookies, I highly recommend using really good quality milk chocolate and cutting into chunks. I buy mine from Trader Joe’s, it’s a belgium milk chocolate and it’s amazing. If you don’t have a Trader Joe’s by you then I would at least use the big Guittard milk chocolate chips.
