SNACK ATTACK CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES — These chocolate chips cookies are loaded with candy, cookies and potato chips. Perfect for anytime a craving strikes!
Sometimes, when you want a snack, it’s just so hard to choose. But these Snack Attack Chocolate Chip Cookies will solve that problem! As the saying goes, they include “everything but the kitchen sink.”
Whether you’re looking for something sweet or something salty, these cookies have you covered. From the chocolate chips and candy coated chocolate, to the mini Oreos and potato chips, there’s something for everyone.
And it’s all loaded into a soft and chewy cookie for the perfect snack fix any time.
My kids couldn’t get enough of these cookies. They disappeared in no time, and I’m pretty sure they thought I was mom of the year.
So if you really want to wow the kids with an after-school-snack, these cookies are the way to go.
Of course, there is no limit to the substitutions and additions you could use in this recipe. Pretzels, peanut butter or white chocolate chips, or mini vanilla wafers are all fun ways to change these cookies up a bit. And there are SO many kinds of M&M’s now. The possibilities there really are endless.
I like to make fairly large cookies with this recipe. You’ll want to use at least a quarter cup of dough per cookie. But I usually aim for closer to a third of a cup.
I mean, how else are you going to fit all those tasty snack foods into one cookie? No wonder my kids loved these so much. They’re delicious and huge!
I hope you have as much fun making and eating these cookies as my family and I did. Enjoy!

- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 cups butter, softened
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 4 eggs
- 1 tablespoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup peanut M&M's

- 2 cups ridged potato chips, coarsely crushed
- 1 cup mini Oreo cookies, halved
- Additional chocolate chips, candy pieces and potato chips, for pressing into tops of cookies
- In a large bowl, combine flour, pudding mix, baking soda and baking powder. Set aside.
- With an electric or stand mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until combined. Gradually beat in flour mixture.
- Stir in chocolate chips, and both M&Ms. Fold in potato chips with a spoon. Using 1/4 to 1/3 cup dough per cookie, drop dough onto parchment or wax paper lined baking sheets (they can be close together to fit on the pan, you will rearrange them for baking). Cover and refrigerate for one hour.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. Place 6 balls of dough onto each cookie sheet, 3 inches apart. Leave remaining dough refrigerated until ready to bake.
- Press each dough ball down to about 1 inch thick. Press 4-5 Oreo cookie halves into each cookie, along with additional chocolate and potato chips as desired.
- Bake for 13-16 minutes, or until edges are golden brown. Cool on pans for 5-7 minutes before transferring to wire racks to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
