Strawberry Cookies 'n Cream Cookies

Who's in the mood for some cookies? 

Not only are these cookies so cute, but they are so easy to make and start with a cake mix and pudding mix.  If you can't find strawberry creme pudding mix, you can always use vanilla.  I added a few drops of food coloring to the batter to have a slightly brighter pink cookie, but you can totally leave out the food coloring and you will still end up with a pink cookie.  They will just be slightly lighter pink that the cookies in these pictures.  

I use cookies 'n cream candy bars in cookies all the time.  They are really good and I love the speckled look they add.  I buy a 12-pack of snack-size candy bars and break 10 of them into four chunks and then each chunk in half and press them into the cookie dough balls.  Some of them will get slightly browned in the oven, but it doesn't change the flavor at all.

These cookies are crisp on the outside and soft and chewy on the inside.  They are so dang good.  I love them.  I probably shouldn't tell you this, but I accidentally ate four of these in one day.  Oops.  Moderation did not happen that day.  I can't wait for you to give them a try.

I shared this recipe over at THE RECIPE CRITIC'S site the other day.  Click HERE to check out the post.
