I felt I needed to do something different with the chocolate chip cookie request. I have noticed online quite a few people have suggested adding an instant vanilla pudding mix, so I went with that. And I also decided to top them with fudge. A simple fudge – just chocolate chips, condensed milk and vanilla. You can use any chocolate chip recipe, of course, but I will still share the one I used. These don’t need to chill in the fridge, but you can if you want.
