Why I Love This Recipe

Yet another twist on the good ol’ chocolate chipper, this time I threw in some custard powder and Smarties (the Canadian chocolate, not the American candy!) for flavour, texture and colour! Eggless and whole-grain to boot, these are a joy for kids and adults alike. If you can’t find custard powder (like Bird’s – not the instant kind though) you can substitute measure-for-measure with cook and serve vanilla pudding.

Ingredients You'll Need

3/4 cup shortening
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp vanilla
1 tbsp water
1 cup flour
¾ cup whole-wheat flour
1 tsp cornstarch
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp vanilla custard powder
1/3 cup miniature chocolate chips
1/3 cup Smarties or M&Ms


Preheat oven to 375°F.

Cream together shortening, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Beat in vanilla and water.

Combine flours, cornstarch, baking soda, salt and custard powder.

Gently blend the dry ingredients into the creamed batter.

When almost completely blended, add the chocolate chips and Smarties.

Drop dough balls onto un-greased cookie sheets.

Bake 10 minutes and cool completely on sheets.

This sounds great, you said substitute with pudding mix?
