For people who love snickerdoodles, nothing tastes quite like these simple cookies. We were offered them a lot a kids, probably since they are easy and inexpensive to make. The light and crispy texture is always welcome, but sometimes you want to switch things up and that’s where this tasty pudding comes in.
With no cooking, it’s a really fast and efficient way to get the taste of a snickerdoodle without the work and without using the oven. If you’re making a big meal and need to use the oven and burners both it’s nice to have a no-bake option for dessert. And, if you happen to have some leftover snickerdoodle cookies as well, they make a great topping for this tasty treat.
To make this pudding you only need a few ingredients. You can use either white chocolate or vanilla instant pudding mix, and of course you’ll need milk to make that. Then you’ll also need whipped topping, white chocolate chips, and cinnamon.
Start by combining the pudding mix, milk, and cinnamon together using a hand mixer. Then stir or whisk in half of the whipped topping.
Fold in the remaining whipped topping and 1/4 cup chopped white chocolate chips. Divide this between 6 dessert cups or bowls.
After you let the pudding firm up up for 30 minutes in the refrigerator, then you can sprinkle the individual servings with crushed snickerdoodle cookies if you like. This is a good dessert to make if you only have a few cookies left and don’t feel like making a whole new batch of them.
The smooth and creamy goodness of pudding is a perfect match to cinnamon and the white chocolate chips. It’s one of my favorite ways to doctor up a simple box of instant pudding!
