    It’s crazy how fast time flies. A month ago today, Jason and I were getting married and then we were off to Turks & Caicos. How I wish I could rewind and relive those moments again and again! We’re supposed to be getting our wedding video sometime this week and I’m seriously so excited to watch it. Although I cried the entire time walking down the aisle, it’ll be nice to replay that special moment because I definitely don’t remember any of what was said at the alter, lol

    Oh, I finally saw The Great Gatsby yesterday. I must say, I like the classic Robert Redford one better, but I like this modernized one for the grandiose cinematic screenplay. I loved Gatsby’s mansion and I loved all the outfits. Ugh, Carey Mulligan was dazzling. I really love her. She’s so pretty and I think played the part perfectly. (Btw – did you know she’s only 27?! TWENTY-SEVEN!! She definitely doesn’t look it, but wow that took me by surprise!) So, I’m not a fan of Tobey McGuire but I must say that he did a really good job as Nick Carraway and he’s now growing on me as an actor. You know who I thought was REALLY out of character? Isla Fisher for being that lady who slept around with Tom Buchanan. I just really didn’t see her in that part, at all! She always plays that goodie-goodie and innocent/ditzy chick. I guess she’s trying to break out of that or something, but it was just really weird seeing her that way, lol..oh and Leo, as always, he did such a fantastic job. I swear that guy just KNOWS how to be the character he’s acting as. He’s got crazy talent! Have you seen the movie yet? What did you think?

    I made these cookies a month or so ago to thank a friend for helping me out. Her and I were really close in high school and then college happened and we kind of drifted in and out. We stopped hanging out for a couple years after college and just recently we started talking again. It was really nice. Even after all these years, despite the differences, we were still able to catch up like we didn’t even lose a beat. Friendships like that should really be treasured. It’s very rare these days to come upon friendships that can be picked right back up and it’s also really rare that those friendships that have faded will come back in your life again. For her to help me out even though we hadn’t talked for several years, it just made me realize who my true friends are, ya know? She was really selfless and genuinely just wanted to help me out. I really appreciated it. Since she’s a loyal reader of the blog, I figured I’d bake her cookies, give her a shout-out (heyyyy Jackie!) and give you all this recipe for the cookies I baked for her. Food brings all sorts of people together but it also expresses gratitude and love. Food is such a powerful entity. There’s so much that food can do and so much impact it can have in someone’s life.

    Maybe you’ll go make these cookies today for a friend who’s helped you out? Or just as a nice gesture. Who knows, you could brighten that person’s day :)

    • 1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
    • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar
    • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
    • 1: 3.4 oz package of chocolate instant pudding mix
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract

    • 1/2 cup white chocolate chips


    • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with silicone baking mats or parchment paper. Set aside.
    • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt.

    • Slowly add in the dry ingredients until just combined. Fold in the chocolate & white chocolate chips with a spatula.

    Happy Memorial Day!

  • Sommer @ ASpicyPerspective says:

    Delicious cookies, Julie! Happy Memorial Day!

  • Lauren @ Climbing Grier Mountain says:

    1) Tobey McGuire would be my last choice to cast as Nick Carraway, but I’m glad he played the part well. I still need to see that move! 2) You are so sweet to bake your friend cookies. Food really does bring us closer together! 3) Love, love, love these cookies!! Happy Memorial Day!

  • Laura (Tutti Dolci) says:

    Yes please to triple chocolate!

  • Ali | Gimme Some Oven says:

    These look SO good, Julie!!!

    And I’m glad you finally saw Gatsby! I’m with you on being a little “meh” about Tobey McGuire. But Carey Mulligan? Agreed – brilliant. :)

  • Kathryn says:

    I can’t believe it’s been a month since you got married! I hope the first month of married life has been treating you well. If it involves these cookies, I’m pretty sure you two are going to have a delicious life together!

  • Amanda D says:

    I loved the movie more than I thought I would after reading all the negative reviews. It was very accurate to the book, which I appreciated. I agree with Isla Fisher being a weird choice for Myrtle. It was kinda confusing.

  • Leah | So, How's It Taste? says:

    Yum, yum, yum! You know if there’s pudding in the mix, I’m in! These sound right up this chocoholic’s alley!

  • nessa says:

    These look fantastic!

  • Marta @ What should I eat for breakfast today says:

    I haven’t seen The Great Gatsby yet but, but I will, I am very curious about this version. It would be fun to go to the cinema with your cookies in bag :)

  • Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel says:

    What?! Crazy that you’ve been married a month already! I can’t believe it, it seems like yesterday I was following along on IG :) congrats to the happy couple! I think eating a plateful of chocolate cookies are in order!

  • Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. says:

    I can’t believe you have been married a month already! I’m going on 3 years in a month and I feel like we just got married.

    I’m holding off on Great Gatsby. I’m not sure I will be able to stand it compared to the Robert Redford version. The crazy music just seems wrong, lol!

    On another note, these cookies look amazing! You had me a triple chocolate!

  • Rachel @ Baked by Rachel says:

    Don’t you remember Isla’s character in the Wedding Crashers? Not exactly goodie goodie. I’m debating on if I should even see the new movie – I feel like it’d be great for the updated technology and costumes but you’re right – the original is probably best. So easy to judge and compare when you love the original.

    • Julie says:

      Ahh I completely forgot about her in Wedding Crashers!! Haha, too funny – I just keep thinking about her in Confessions of a Shopoholic or some other goodie goodie ones she was in. Always forget the bad ones ;)

  • I don’t even know how much of this dough would make it to the oven because I’d be eating it all right out of the bowl!

  • Cookin Canuck says:

    These look fantastic! I’m thinking of making a batch of these and tucking them in the freezer so I don’t eat them all at once. I need to get myself to the theater to see The Great Gatsby.

  • sally @ sallys baking addiction says:

    I didn’t even REALIZE it was isla fisher until after the movie ended. Just am not used to her in that kind of role! I’m older than Carey Mulligan which is just plain scary. She’s gorgeous. I loved the movie. And we just contracted our videographer for the wedding and I’m so excited. :) Have fun watching!

    These cookies look wonderful and so soft from that pudding mix!

    • Julie says:

      The videographer is one of the best investments you’ll make, Sally! So thrilled you decided to get one – I know a lot of brides say that’s their #1 regret!! :) xo

  • Audra | The Baker Chick says:

    You have a lucky friend to get such beautiful cookies as a thank you gift! They look great!

  • Maria says:

    Triple chocolate is always a good idea!

  • Aimee @ ShugarySweets says:

    Love these cookies Julie! And lucky friend you have :)

  • Marian (Sweetopia) says:

    Lunch time cravings!! I need to make these!!

  • Kevin @ Closet Cooking says:

    Count me in for 3 times the chocolaty goodness!

  • naomi says:

    Triple chocolate?? Yes, please – double batch!

  • Nikki @Seeded at the Table says:

    Ugh, I miss being able to go to the theater anytime I wanted! With two little kiddos, we haven’t gone in, well, a long time. haha! I want to see Star Trek and The Great Gatsby. Glad it’s good! One of my favorite movies is Moulin Rouge, so I’m sure I’ll like Gatsby! :)

    Although I can’t go to the movies whenever I want, I can still make cookies anytime! And, THESE sound perfectly amazing.

  • Megan {Country Cleaver} says:

    I STILL haven’t seen the new Gatsby. I’m glad I’m not the only one who can’t get past Tobey McG. he’s just not for me, but I’ll give him another shot :) And I’ll totally give these a shot, because triple and chocolate are two words that are best said side by side. YUM!

  • Erin @ Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts says:

    Love anything with chocolate, but TRIPLE chocolate? Yes please!

  • Aimee @ Simple Bites says:

    I’m kind of crushing on Leo all over again after TGG. Loved the movie!

    Love these cookies too.

  • Stephanie @ Macaroni and Cheesecake says:

    How sweet of you to make these cookies for your friend! I love how food brings us together! These look delicious and I love how chocolatey they are!

  • Nicole @ Young, Broke and Hungry says:

    I still havent seen the Great Gatsby but it looks like a fun movie! These cookies look so chocolaty and soft.

  • claire @ the realistic nutritionist says:

    It’s SO true (re: friendships) like that. They are so meant to be treasured!

    Like these cookies. Like how I did that?

  • marla says:

    My kids would LOVE these cookies!

  • Tracey says:

    I’m 100% positive that these cookies would brighten my husband’s day if I made them :) If I had some chocolate pudding mix on hand they’d be my afternoon baking project for sure!

  • cassie says:

    I would love a few of these right now!!

    I can’t believe how fast time flies either…and it just keeps getting faster and faster!

  • Des @ Life's Ambrosia says:

    These cookies look divine. You really can’t have too much chocolate. :) I too have a friend that I was best friends with throughout elementary and middle school but then we grew apart when we went to different high schools. We had a couple of classes together in college and it didn’t take long to get back our friendship and we are still best friends to this day :)

  • Robin says:

    I just made the Triple Chocolate Cookies and I must say…… YUM, YUM!
    I had to adjust the recipe for high altitude by adding 1/4 cup of flour.
    These cookies are to die for!!

  • Katie brigstock says:

    These look amazing! you can definitely never have too much chocolate in my books;)xxx

  • Kathy @ FoodWineThyme says:

    I can’t wait to go see the Great Gatsby. I absolutely loved the book when I read it back in my high school days. I can totally enjoy some of these cookies while watching it. Yumm

  • ashley - baker by nature says:

    Triple chocolate = triple love! I need these babies!

  • Gaby says:


  • Jenny Flake says:

    Oh yah~ I’ll take 2 dozen please :) xoxo

  • Jackie says:

    HEY THAT’S ME!!! yummmmmmmmmm. thanks for the shout out girl & i’m glad we have been reunited!!

  • Heather Christo says:

    OMG to these cookies, and I loved Gatsby. I think I want to see it again- it was a lot to take in all at once.

  • Stacy | Wicked Good Kitchen says:

    Julie, what a beautiful post about friendship. What you say is so true. I have not seen The Great Gatsby, but enjoyed the novel and classic film with Robert Redford, just like you. But, your Triple Chocolate Cookies? They look out-of-this-world delicious! All moist and chewy. Yum! Already pinned to group boards at Pinterest! Read your About page. So nice to meet you! xo

  • Nutmeg Nanny says:

    You had me at triple chocolate! These look wonderful:)

  • Stephanie says:

    I’m still dying to watch The Great Gatsby! Maybe I’ll bake some of these cookies and sneak it into the theater with me. hehe

  • Natalie says:

    Instead of using pudding mix can cocoa powder be used as a substitute.

    • Julie says:

      No, those two are completely different and they won’t yield the same results.
