Candy cane pudding? Were you aware of such a thing? Seriously, I found it and right next to it? GINGERBREAD pudding!! What is this world coming to? I have to definitely get out more... What fun flavors that I am definitely going to try on their own! :) For right now though, the candy cane pudding was a part of the new cookies that I tried. They were super good, even though I was missing the cake mix! Missed that one on my grocery list when I was looking at this recipe. So, I begged, borrowed and/or stole some german chocolate cake mix from my brother's house and these tasted fantastic! Chocolate and candy cane? How could it go wrong? Super yummy!
