Why You’ll Love These Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • No stand/hand mixer required to make them thanks to the melted butter.
  • No chill time. Just scoop and bake the dough right away!
  • Kid friendly – kids will love these adorable bite-sized cookies. They make a great snack on the go!
  • Perfect for parties or any type of get-together!

Ingredient Breakdown

All-purpose flour – this gives the cookies structure.

Baking soda – helps the cookies spread. Do not use baking powder!

Butter – provides flavor and structure. Melting the butter helps make the cookies chewy. I always recommend using unsalted butter but salted butter works if that’s all you have on hand, just be sure to omit the 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Granulated sugar and brown sugar – both sugars are necessary for sweetness and texture. I prefer using dark brown sugar for extra molasses flavor but light brown sugar also works fine!

Egg – binds the ingredients and provides structure.

Vanilla extract and salt – enhances flavor. Always use pure vanilla extract instead of imitation for best flavor.

Chocolate chips – they wouldn’t be chocolate chip cookies without these! I recommend using mini chocolate chips since these cookies are so tiny.

How To Make Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies

1. In a small bowl combine the all-purpose flour, salt and baking soda. Set aside.

2. In a medium bowl whisk the melted butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar.

3. Add the egg and vanilla extract then mix until just combined.

4. Add the dry ingredients all at once then fold until almost combined (there should still be streaks of flour). Then add the mini chocolate chips and fold until just combined. Do not over mix the dough because it will make the cookies tough.

5. Using a 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop dough onto the lined baking sheets (be sure to adjust the baking time if your cookies are smaller/larger). If desired press extra mini chocolate chips onto the tops of each cookie dough ball and sprinkle with flaky sea salt.

6. Bake at 375°F for 7 minutes then cool on the baking sheet. The cookies will still look slightly raw when they come out but will continue to bake as they cool. Store Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

Pro Tips For Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • Weigh your ingredients using a kitchen scale! Measuring ingredients by volume is not accurate.
  • Don’t over mix the dough! There should still be streaks of flour in the dough when you add the mini chocolate chips. Over mixing = more gluten development which means tough cookies. We don’t want any tough cookies here!
  • Sprinkle with flaky sea salt before baking. I like this brand.
  • Press extra mini chocolate chips on top of scooped dough before baking to make them look pretty.
  • Don’t over bake them! They will still look a little raw when they come out of the oven but will continue to bake as they cool on the baking sheet. This is the secret to crisp edges and chewy centers.
