It was about time I get back to the classics (with a little spin, of course). Today, I’m excited to share my absolute favorite recipe for chocolate chip cookies. These are not just any ‘ol cookies though; these are MINI chocolate chip cookies! Everything is cuter when it’s miniature, right? Especially food? Each mini cookie is only about 1 1/2 inches wide, so they are bite sized and ready to enjoy in large qualities, which I have every intention of doing. This mini chocolate chip cookie recipe is a classic, but it’s tried and true in my household because I’ve made them so many times in so many sizes. Mini has to be my favorite though! Just to show you how easy these mini chocolate chip cookies are to make, I’ve made a quick video for you…
Ready to see how these itty bitty teeny weeny cookies are made? I’ll give you a hint: it’s the same way you make regular cookies!

I’m a big fan of soft, chewy cookies, so this recipe is a winner for me. However, I know some people prefer crispy cookies (aka, traitors). For those individuals, I recommend my cosmic brownie bark instead.
Several weeks ago, I actually used this chocolate chip cookie recipe to make almost 100 cookies for Andrew’s Bar Prep class. After all, cookies make people feel better and that was a group of people who really needed some cheering up. The Bar just completed (FINALLY!! she shouts from the rooftops) so everyone is in better spirits now.
The hardest thing about making these mini chocolate chip cookies is resisting the urge to eat all of the cookie dough before baking the cookies. Luckily, I swear these cookies taste as good baked as they do unbaked! Just trust me on this 😉 Happy baking!
