Peppermint White Chocolate Pudding Cookies

Hooray for the Holidays! It truly is the most wonderful time of the year! We spent the whole day Sunday as a family putting up our Christmas tree and decking the whole house with holiday decor. It was so much fun! The boys are so into it this year and Brandon and I are so enjoying soaking in the season with them. It’s going to be extra special this year!

As we were decorating, I decided to bake up a batch of festive cookies for us to enjoy by the tree after we put the star on it. We were all so excited about the decorations so why not celebrate with cookies?!

Peppermint White Chocolate Pudding Cookies

Pudding cookies are always a favorite, so I decided to use a white chocolate pudding mix with white chocolate chips and plenty of peppermint to perk them up. They turned out AMAZING! The white chocolate and peppermint combo is perfection!

I love these cookies so much that I had to bake them again to send out for The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap I participated in this week where I shipped a dozen cookies to three fellow food bloggers all across the country. I hope they love them as much as we do!

And don’t you think Santa would love a plate of these yummy cookies on Christmas Eve?! I hear he loves peppermint! 🙂

These peppermint white chocolate pudding cookies are chewy, perfectly sweet and make for a festive Holiday treat!


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 (3.4 ounce) box instant white chocolate pudding mix
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 cup white chocolate chips
  • 11/2 cups peppermint crunch, divided (I used Andes)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla and beat until well combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, dry pudding mix, baking soda and salt. Add the dry ingredients, 1 cup at a time, to the wet ingredients in the mixer until just combined.
  4. Stir in white chocolate chips and 1 cup peppermint crunch. Shape dough into heaping tablespoon-sized rounds and place a few inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. Press additional peppermint crunch into the top of each cookie, if desired. Flatten each cookie very slightly with the palm of your hand.
  5. Bake for about 11-13 minutes or until the cookies start to turn a very light brown around the edges, rotating the cookie sheets after 7 minutes of baking.
  6. Let cool completely on cookie sheets. Store in an airtight container. Enjoy!

  1. Hi Maegan,

    Just wanted to let you know that I made these cookies last night and brought them to work today. They are sooo good!! I’ve gotten so many compliments from family and co-workers about them! In fact, a bunch of co-workers have asked for the recipe!! 🙂 Just wanted to say thank you for a great recipe that I will be sure to make again! 🙂


    1. Hi Abigail! I bought it that way. Andes is the brand I used. I found it in the baking section. You could certainly chop peppermint or Andes peppermint chocolates if you can’t find the peppermint crunch. Enjoy!

  2. Thank you so much for sending us so many of these amazing cookies, Maegan! My family absolutely loved them and could not stop eating them! My son keeps asking for more since they are long gone and I can’t wait to whip up a batch for him! I can’t believe how lucky I got to be matched up with you my friend! Love everything you make! Hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday season!!!<3<3<3

    1. Awwww, Kelly! I was so thrilled when I found out I would be sending some to you! So happy y’all enjoyed them! 🙂 Wishing you all the happiest of Holidays too! xoxo

    1. Hi Natalie! You could use another flavored pudding mix (such as vanilla), but there’s really no substitute for the pudding mix in this recipe.

  6. This is a delicious cookie, and it looks very festive. I have made this exactly as written and it always turns out great. I have also added crushed candy cane on top instead of the Andes and it also is delicious with a little crunch added. Thanks for the great recipe.
