Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies

I got home from the BlogHer Food Conference last night. All I can say right now is, wow! My mind and heart are still full. I am honored and grateful to be a part of such a powerful, talented, and inspirational community. I haven’t had time to even unpack yet, so pictures and details will have to come later. Instead, I am sharing my mini chocolate chip cookie recipe today.

I love mini desserts. They are adorable. I have made mini cupcakes, tarts, and breads, but surprisingly, not cookies. I don’t know why because you all know I have a cookie obsession. I recently made a batch of mini chocolate chip cookies that were almost too cute to eat.

I used mini chocolate chips and made the cookies really small, about two teaspoons of dough per cookie. The cookies were perfectly round and tiny. When Josh saw the cookies he thought I bought them from the store. Um, no-I don’t buy my cookies, I bake them:) These mini chocolate chip cookies are soft, with a chewy edge. Mini chocolate chips are the perfect size for these itty bitty cookies.

If you like mini desserts, try baking a batch of mini chocolate chip cookies. They are perfect for kids, baby showers, or snacking. Good things come in small packages!

Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yield: Makes 3 dozen mini cookies

Cook Time: 8 minutes


1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup mini chocolate chips


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat and set aside.

2. In medium bowl, whisk the flour, salt, and baking soda together. Set aside.

3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream the butter and sugars together until creamy and smooth. Add in the egg and vanilla extract.

4. Slowly mix in the flour, until combined. Stir in mini chocolate chips.

5. Roll dough into tiny balls, about 2 teaspoons of dough. Place on baking sheet and slightly flatten with the palm of your hand. Bake for 8 minutes or until cookies are golden brown and set. Remove from the oven and let cool on baking sheet for two minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

    The absolute best chocolate chip cookies ever, they were soft and not too small. I wanted a simple recipe for my 9 year old to make for a school project, and I was pleasantly surprised at how good they were. I shared the website and recipe with all my girlfriends. Thank you.

    I’ve tried this recipe and It was delicious. even though I don’t own an oven, I just baked it on a toaster oven same heat. I even tried it with sliced almonds. ( I used regular sized chocolate chips since I ran out of mini chocolate chip).

    I had a recipe for these for yrs but they were always missing something I always thought it was vanilla extract so I added it to it but I was never quite sure how much to add. Well the other day I lost my whole notebook of recipes and I was so lost and trying to make a recipe from scratch when you have a disease that is slowly eating away you mind well let’s just say it isn’t fun. So Thank you for bringing back a recipe I lost and having the vanilla in it.

    They are absolutely awesome! But mine doesn’t so good as yours! What’s the secret?

    I’m making these today to put into goody bags for my daughter’s birthday! She turns 8 so each child will take home 8 mini-cookies in a pretty gift bag. And that is it! No junk from the dollar store, no junk food (I feel better about homemade cookies that I do a bag of random candy!). Excited to give this recipe a try!

    I stumbled across this recipe while searching on the Internet for a good one. The cookies were delicious! The only thing was like other people have said, I had to bake them much longer and then broil very quickly to get them brown.

    These were delicious! The only thing I recommend is refrigerating the cookie dough for an hour before baking, otherwise the cookies spread way too much and become quite thin. Just a friendly tip. :)

    Hi, I’m a first time visitor to your site – I love it! being South African, I’m not sure about some terminology in the recipe. Is baking soda the same as baking powder or is it bicarbonate of soda? thanks xxx

    These are absolutely the perfect chocolate chip cookies. I like mine crunchy, so I leave them in the oven a few minutes longer and they are absolutely amazing. These are my new go-to cookies! I can’t get enough!

      Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days. You can also freeze them!

    Hi! I really wanna make these for a birthday present for a friend, I was wondering if you recommend dark or light brown sugar and if there’s a difference? Also does it have to be unsalted butter? Is there a difference in taste? Thank you so much! I’m really hoping to make them this week.

    I’m about to go on a road trip with my clown troupe, and my job is to make cookies for the road. Among others, I’m making these! Thanks for what looks like a great recipe 😀

    Amazing recipe for mini cookies! Just tried it for regular sized cookies and they don’t spread out – which is just fine!
