Bite Sized Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
Sometimes tiny cookies can dry out easily, but not this recipe! This recipe is crafted specifically for mini cookies, so all of the ratios are perfect for ensuring a soft and chewy cookie. Plus, they store great in the freezer so I love to keep a big batch in there and pull one out whenever I have a sweet tooth.
Ingredients for Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites
- Salted Butter (softened) – I always used salted butter, but if you only have unsalted, just add a pinch of salt to the dough.
- Granulated Sugar
- Brown Sugar – We’ll use more brown sugar in these cookies to keep them super soft and chewy.
- Vanilla – There’s a lot of vanilla in this recipe, but just trust me! It gives the cookie the PERFECT flavor. This is my favorite vanilla.
- All Purpose Flour
- Baking Powder – Baking powder will give the cookie some lift and volume, rather than just flattening like a pancake.
- Salt – I always use this Redmond Real Salt.
- Mini Chocolate Chips – I use mini chocolate chips so that there are several pieces of chocolate in each cookie and chocolate in every bite. You could also chop up a chocolate bar instead.
How to Make Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F.
- Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, then set aside.
- Using a stand mixer or electric hand mixer, cream together the butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until thoroughly combined.
- Add in the egg and vanilla and continue to mix until combined.
- Next, add in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Mix until a a soft dough forms.
- Add in your mini chocolate chips and stir until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
- Use clean hands to break the dough into small portions, about 2 tsp each, then place on your prepared baking sheet.
- You can roll the cookie dough portions into balls, or just leave them as is after breaking the dough apart. I usually just leave them as is.
- Arrange the cookie dough evenly on your cookie sheet.
- Bake in the preheated oven for 5-7 minutes or until the cookies have spread, flattened, and no longer look wet and glossy in the centers.
- Allow the mini cookies to cool directly on the pan.
- Store your bite-sized chocolate chip cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
