Chewy Chocolate Chunk Cookies

Hi, my name is Jay and I am a cartoon junkie.

It's understandable when you are a kid, and even as a teen...but I am a full grown adult. A mom. An Auntie. A wife. Is it still OK?

I would like to think it's sweet and young at heart, not bizarre. 
Doesn't matter too much, I like what I like!

Of course the old classics are a fave!

But I am a child of the 80's.....

And happened to have a child who grew up in the 90's...

Sadly, good cartoons are hard to come by now. I am a sucker for this cute little guy though.

Just to continue with my late in life childishness, I have a love affair with chocolate chip cookies. 
Make them chocolate CHUNK?  OK!
Saw this Pillsbury recipe, and knew I couldn't go wrong.

Hubby and the girl poured big glasses of milk and waited not so patiently. They had to have them hot right out of the oven.
Ooey and gooey!

1 Cup butter (softened)
½ Cup packed brown sugar
½ Cup granulated sugar
1 Box French vanilla instant pudding mix
2 Eggs
2 Tsp vanilla
2 ¼ Cups all purpose flour
1 Tsp baking soda
1 Bag (11.5 oz) semi sweet chocolate chunks
1 Cup coarsely chopped walnuts

1 Heat oven to 350
2. In large bowl, beat sugars and butter with electric mixer until light and fluffy.
3. Beat in pudding mix
4. Beat in eggs and vanilla
5. Gradually beat in flour and baking soda
6. Stir in chocolate chunks and nuts
7. Drop onto ungreased cookie sheet
8. Bake 14-16 minutes
