How do you make something more desirable? Make it smaller. Make it tiny. Make it bite size! Why is this? I don’t know, I don’t make the brain rules, I just know them. So mini chocolate chip cookies had to happen. They are so cute!

Now, is it wise to make a cookie you can eat in a whole bite? Probably not because you will feel like you can eat many. But that’s the thing, you can eat many because it would take like 10 of these to equal one Brown Butter Chocolate Chip cookie. How many cookies would you rather eat? 1 or 10? Obviously ten. So.. you’re welcome. #health You have been warned though.

Now, the downside to these cookies, if you can really call it a downside, is that the scooping part is time intensive. When you use a tiny scoop, this makes a LOT of cookies. It’s perfect if you’re having a get together or a party. If not, you may want to freeze some of the dough. BUT, these mini chocolate chip cookies have way more positives to outweigh the negative.

Baking Tips

Scooping your dough is the most tedious part of baking this. I tried a few sizes and about 1 teaspoon of dough made the perfect sized mini chocolate chip cookies. They are about the size of a silver dollar, or 1.5-2 inches wide. I recommend scooping all the dough, then chilling.

Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies Key Ingredients

  • Mini Chocolate Chips – Small cookies need small chocolate chips. Semi sweet is what I’d recommend.
  • Butter – Butter is always going to be a key staple ingredient of any cookie recipe. I always use unsalted, but if you use salted, decrease/omit the salt in the recipe.
