Costco Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe
To create this recipe, I actually referenced and used the exact ingredients listed on the mini Costco cookies package. This means the cookies you make at home will taste just like the real deal! But instead of buying them from Costco, you can make the exact amount of cookies you need, whether that be just a few or enough for a party.
Ingredients for Mini Chocolate Chip Cookies
- Salted Butter – I always used salted butter. If you only have unsalted, just add an extra pinch of salt to the dough.
- Brown Sugar – We’ll use more brown sugar than granulated sugar in this recipe to keep the cookies super chewy.
- Granulated Sugar
- Corn Syrup – This recipe uses A LOT of corn syrup to make them ultra chewy.
- Molasses – We only need a tiny bit of molasses to add color and flavor to the cookies.
- Vanilla Extract
- All Purpose Flour
- Baking Soda
- Mini Chocolate Chips – Because these are mini cookies, be sure to use mini chocolate chips. If you want to use this recipe to make full size Costco cookies, you can use chocolate chunks instead.
How to Make Mini Costco 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 either a stand mixer or an electric hand mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until the mixture is light in color and fluffy in texture.
- Scrape the sides of the bowl to include all ingredients, then add in the egg, corn syrup and molasses. Mix until well combined.
- Next, add the flour, salt and baking soda and continue to mix until a sticky dough forms.
- Finally, stir in the mini chocolate chips until evenly distributed throughout the dough.
- Use a small cookie scoop, spoon, or clean hands to portion out your dough into small, 1 tbsp portions.
- Roll each portion into a ball and arrange on your prepared cookie sheet.
- Bake the cookie dough balls at 350°F for 7-9 minutes.
- When the cookies have spread and the edges have started to golden brown, this means they are ready to come out of the oven.
- Allow the cookies to cool directly on the pan before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
- To get the soft edge that Costco cookies are known for, store the cookies in an airtight container overnight. The edges will soften as they sit overnight. If you eat the cookies right out of the oven, they will have a more buttery crisp.
Can I freeze Costco’s Cookies?
Yes! Freeze the cookies in a single layer on a cookie sheet for 1 hour. At that point, you can gather and stack your frozen cookies without them sticking to each other. Place the cookies in an airtight container and freeze them for up to 3 months.
My cookies spread too much- How can I fix that?
If your first batch of cookies spread more than you’d like, all you need to do is add about 1/4 cup more flour to your cookie dough. Differences in climate and elevation can make cookies spread more or less based on your location.
