Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 3.4 oz. chocolate fudge instant pudding mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup cocoa powder
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • ½ t. salt
  • ½ t. instant espresso powder
  • ½ t. cayenne
  • ¼ t. cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 12 oz. chocolate chips

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • Cream the butter and sugars in a large bowl until fluffy.
  • Beat in the pudding mix, eggs, and vanilla.
  • Mix in the cocoa powder, baking soda, and spices until just combined.
  • Slowly add the flour and mix until it’s just incorporated, then mix in the chocolate chips.
  • Lightly roll into balls and place on a lined baking sheet.
  • Bake at 350° for 10 minutes, just until they aren’t shiny – if you’re not sure, pull them out sooner rather than later!
  • Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a rack.
