These easy to make Nutella Pudding Cookies only require four ingredients. So crunchy, fudgy, and insanely delicious that you might want to make a double batch!
My two teens have gotten into baking and cooking. I have taught them how to make a few meals and now there are several things they can make themselves on nights when I’m too busy to cook. Vanessa likes making dessert for our friends and family when they come to visit.
Both of them also like playing what they call “The Food Game” with friends. They take turns whipping up concoctions in the kitchen and feeding them to their friends who have their eyes closed. To make it more enjoyable, they try to make the most delicious things.
One of their favorite ingredients is Nutella. Although the game can make a rather big mess in my kitchen, it keeps them entertained and they are actually learning by experimenting!

How To Make Nutella Pudding Cookies
Step One: Make The Cookie Dough
In a medium sized bowl add the dry pudding mix, the egg, and the nutella. Mix with a wooden spoon until fully combined.
These nutella pudding cookies only make a small batch which is good if you are making them for one or two people, but if you are cooking for a family you will need a double batch.
Step Two: Coat The Dough
Form the dough into balls using a one tablespoon size cookie scoop. Place the cookie dough in a small bowl of sanding sugar and roll it to coat all sides.
Step Three: Flaten and Bake
Cover a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Place each ball of dough on the mat leaving space in between them. Using the back of a fork, flatten the dough making a crosshatch pattern.
Bake and enjoy these nutella pudding cookies that are chewy on the inside and crunchy on the outside.
Nutella Pudding Cookies FAQs
1. Do you have to use sanding sugar? No, you do not have to. Sanding sugar has bigger crystals and is used as an edible decoration. You can use raw sugar for a similar texture. Using granulated sugar will work as well but will make the outside of the cookies less crunchy.
2. What can I add to these cookies? Adding nuts, butterscotch chips, chocolate chips, sprinkles or small candies could add a fun twist to this recipe.
3. What can I use instead of nutella? You could try peanut butter, almond butter or another nut butter for a different flavor.
