Chocolate Chip Cookie Bites


My daughter put in a special request today for tiny chocolate chip cookies and tiny cupcakes (I finally found a tiny cupcake tin (smaller than a mini) at a local kitchen supply store so it’s a frequent request at our house). Since I love all things mini I decided why not, especially if it means I get to eat chocolate chip cookies.

I have to tell you, these are definitely one of my new favorite ways to enjoy chocolate chip cookies. They are just so pop-able and incredibly hard to resist!

You’ll think, okay I eat like 10 (that sounds like a lot, but remember these are bite-size), but no way is that going to happen. I set 10 in front of me but then just kept reaching for more and quickly lost count.

So yes, these are quite dangerous. Not to mention they taste like the perfect chocolate chip cookie. They are soft, chewy and moist and they have a generous amount of chocolate (which is always a must right?).  I used to always be into the large bakery size chocolate chip cookies but now I’ve finally met my match.

This recipe does make a ton, but remember they are tiny so you still just might want to double it. Especially if you are making these to take to a party. You can never have too many mini chocolate chip cookies!

I recommend having someone help you roll these just to make things go faster since there are so many (one person can scoop, the other person can roll) If you have kids around, I promise you they’ll love to help. My kids couldn’t get enough of these. Highlight of their day for sure! Mine too :).

These are the funnest tiniest chocolate chip cookies you'll ever have! They're perfectly poppable and incredibly irresistible and people of every age will love them! Makes approx. 144 bites.

Servings: 10 servings
Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 40 minutes


  • 1 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cornstarch
  • 1/4 + 1/8 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips , plus more for topping if desired


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl whisk together flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt for 20 seconds, set aside.
  2. Place butter in a microwave safe bowl, heat in microwave on HIGH power until butter has melted halfway. Remove and whisk until fully melted. Pour butter into the bowl of an electric stand mixer. Add brown sugar and granulated sugar, fit mixer with paddle attachment and blend mixture on medium speed until well combined. Mix in egg and vanilla extract. With mixer set on low speed, slowly add in dry ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  3. Scoop dough out a slightly heaping 1/2 tsp at a time and drop onto plates (wax paper, whatever). Shape each into a ball, then if desired press 3 - 4 more chocolate chips into top (totally optional, mostly for looks...and more chocolate). Align on two Silpat or parchment paper lined baking sheets, spacing 1-inch apart. Bake in preheated oven about 5 - 6 minutes (they should still fill soft and slightly under-baked, they will continue to cook slightly once removed from oven so carefully not to over-bake). Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet several minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.

  • Hope Tatar: Just wondering, do you think I could put the scoops in my mini cupcake tin so they stay round during baking? June 16, 2019 at 10:01am Reply

    • Jaclyn: There’s a few recipes online that put the dough in mini cupcake tins but they don’t quite stay round. June 18, 2019 at 11:25pm Reply

  • Katie: So sad these didn’t turn out very well. They were flat and thin and just sad. Followed the recipe just as it is. I had made mini chocolate chip cookies a year or so and was sad to find out if was not this recipe. I tried putting the dough in the fridge for a while and that didn’t help either.

  • Linda: I don’t want to rate because from the photos it looks like it works great! Mine came out about a 2 or 3 stars. Not sure where my mistake came from, but we used coconut sugar instead as that is all I had. The cookies did not go flat, they mounded up like a dome and I can see speckles because I should have let the coconut sugar melt in the butter longer (I think). But it seems like a baking soda issue? I also let them cook too long because after five minutes they were still in a mound and I thought maybe my 1/2 tsp ball was too big. I cut the rest of my balls in half for the second tray and cooked 4 min only, those are slightly better. I will have to try it again with proper sugar maybe. Thanks! June 1, 2019 at 3:03pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Most likely it was due to the substitution of coconut sugar it bakes up differently then granulated sugar and brown sugar. June 1, 2019 at 7:11pm Reply

  • Paloma: Unexpectedly it did not make 10 it had made 30 mini cookies. ): But other wise the cookies were delicious. May 20, 2019 at 3:31pm Reply

  • Jason Mercado: Amy nutritional facts available? May 5, 2019 at 6:15pm Reply

    • Jaclyn: Just added it to the recipe. Hope you enjoy! May 6, 2019 at 8:27pm Reply

  • Shiloh: Can’t wait to play checkers with these! April 7, 2019 at 3:59pm Reply

  • Alison: Hi There!
    My daughter wants iddy bitty choc chip cookies for her kindergarten class for her birthday celebration… these look perfect. I can’t tell how big they’ll be baked if I scoop with a 1/2 tsp.
    I wanted to get small boxes to put them in (clear plastic cube boxes). Do you think 2 x 2 x 2 in boxes will be a good fit? I feel like 3 x 3 x 3 may been too big.

    • Jaclyn: They’re very small maybe the size of a nickel or quarter. And the 2 by 2 boxes should be great. March 31, 2019 at 11:19pm Reply

  • Laura: Hi!

    I want to try this recipe soon. They look Yumm! Can you also turn this into a chocolate dough? Should I leave out some flour and add some cacao?

    Greetings! March 25, 2019 at 1:53am Reply

    • Jaclyn: I’m sure with a bit of tweaking it could be done but without testing I can’t say for sure on quantities as you’d likely need a bit more sugar and so forth. March 25, 2019 at 10:58pm Reply

    • Shama: Hi Laura, I just added about a 1/4 cup of cocoa powder without taking any flour out and they turned out really good. March 30, 2019 at 7:26am Reply

    • Miranda: Is pure sugar not the same as granulated because mine are puffy lol June 21, 2019 at 1:44pm Reply

      • Jaclyn: That should be the right sugar, it sounds like there may just be a bit too much flour so next time is recommend adding a little less so they spread more. June 26, 2019 at 12:01am Reply
