Coconut White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Last weekend we finished building our patio and backyard fence. I say we, but Josh did most of the work. I helped with little things, but Josh didn’t want me lifting or getting too exhausted. He is very protective of his pregnant wife and baby:) So I spent most of the day in the kitchen. I wanted to contribute in some way so I baked Coconut White Chocolate Chunk Cookies. Josh deserved a treat after all of his hard work.

These cookies are super soft because I added Coconut Creme pudding mix to the dough. I know, I am obsessed with pudding cookies. I can’t help it. I love the texture the pudding adds. I also stirred in coconut and white chocolate chunks. These cookies are sweet and summery! I always enjoy coconut and white chocolate together and the combination is heavenly in these cookies.

Josh was thrilled to come inside to a plate of warm cookies and a glass of cold milk. I am glad my cookie contribution made his day better. I will post pictures of our patio soon. We still need to plant flowers and shrubs, but it keeps raining. I am hoping these Coconut White Chocolate Chunk Cookies will help bring us some summer sun:)

  4. This looks great! I have to bring a “tropical” dessert to a picnic this weekend, so I’m going to add some lime zest and chopped macadamia nuts to this too. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

  5. I love coconut in cookies, it seems to make them more chewy and the more chewy, the better for me ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. Coconut and white chocolate really is the best combination ever. I haven’t tried pudding cookies yet, but this sounds like the perfect opportunity!

  7. I love the combo of white chocolate and coconut! What a lovely, creative cookie. Great job!

  20. Coconut and white chocolate sounds awesome, I’ve only ever put the two together in a carrot cake (white chocolate frosting) but that doesn’t count. And your husband is a lucky guy. I would build an entire house, with my bare hands, for someone willing to bake me cookies…sure it might be a bit lopsided…. and made out of lego, but it’s the thought right?

  21. I haven’t put pudding in cookies for a few years, but not sure why, because they were always good. Love these with coconut. I didn’t even know there was a coconut pudding.

  27. Even just looking at these pictures makes my tastebuds tingle. I am convinced these are delicious!

  28. That “napkin” looks a lot like the fat quarter I just bought. If it is indeed a fat quarter (you may already know this but I thought I’d share anyway) They are on sale for $1.29 this week at JoAnns which mean I can buy more than one at a time because I don’t have to use a 40% off coupon. If you have no idea what I’m talking about. I apologize and instead I’ll just say, those cookies look heavenly. I wonder if strangers would buy them at a garage sale?

    1. I do know what you are talking about. Thanks for the heads up on the sale:)

  29. I was so inspired by these delicious-looking cookies, and by the idea of PUDDING COOKIES OMG, that I went directly to my kitchen to make my own! My version: Chocolate Moose Tracks Cookies (recipe available on my blog). Thanks for inspiring me! You’re awesome!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love, Maria

  35. I’ve never tried making cookies with pudding mix but can only imagine how soft the cookies would as a result. I’m a huge fan of coconut, so these sound incredible, Maria!

  36. I cant find coconut pudding! I’ve gone to a few of the local markets and have not seen them. I just want to make coconut white chocolate cookies!

  37. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe. I made these today and they are FANTASTIC! I cannot recommend them enough and can’t wait to share them.

  38. I made these for a party today and they were a hit! It was my first time using pudding in cookies, and now I am a huge fan!!

  39. I’ve baked a LOT of cookies in my life but these are, by far, one of the best so far! I have never used a pudding mix in the dough before but am excited to try some new flavor combos using your recipe as a blueprint. Thanks so much for sharing such a wonderful recipe.

  40. This is a WONDERFUL RECIPE! Big hit with the Boyfriend and coworkers. I had to substitute vanilla instant pudding in lieu of the coconut. I was only about to find the coconut pudding mix that was not instant had to be cooked. Does anyone know if that will work? Thanks!

  41. Your dish reminds me of summer more exciting scenes. I was very happy to have full friends. Thank you. If you want to know about my country and the dishes, go to: vegetarianviet.blogspot.com.

  42. Do you think coconut oil could be subsituted for butter here? I am trying to avoid butter where i can. But these sound amazing.. Lol.

  43. 4 stars
    These are delicious! However the cookies became very hard after baking them. Maybe I baked them too long. Will try a smaller bake time next time & see if that helps.
