In a bowl, mix together the flour, cocoa powder, and baking soda.
In a large bowl, cream together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until fluffy. Add the pudding mix powder.
Beat in the eggs and vanilla extract. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet until just combined. Fold in the chocolate.
Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and tuck into the fridge to chill for several hours or overnight.
Preheat oven at 350-degrees. Use a tablespoon scoop to dollop the dough onto a cookie sheet. The cookies won’t spread much, so flatten them a bit. Bake for 9-12 minutes, or until the cookies are set. Let them settle on the cookie sheet for a few minutes and then transfer to a rack to completely cool.
