In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars. then blend in pudding, eggs and vanilla.
In another bowl combine the flour and baking soda, then add flour mixture to sugar mixture. Batter will be somewhat stiff.
Add 3-4 cups of chips, candy and nuts and work into the batter.
Don't be shy...
Scoop cookie dough onto cookie sheet.
I use a scoop because I think it's easier to make the cookies a uniform size.
Bake cookies for about 10 minutes. You want to pull them out when they still look slightly underdone - they will finish baking on the cookie sheet.
Let them cool on the cookie sheet for 5-10 minutes before moving to a cooling rack.
The one version I made that did NOT work out included Heath toffee bits. When I put them in the oven the cookies spread out all over the place, I'm thinking it was the extra butter/fat in the toffee that did it. M&M's, nuts and baking chips all work great!

In this blog I write about my DIY and decorating projects and share easy recipes and party ideas. I live in a small 1920's home, so my blog is packed with budget minded ideas that work great for small spaces.
