Mini-Muffin Tin Chocolate Chip cookies

Marge Taggart


A quick and easy fun treat for a tailgate party or the holidays. Years ago, a close friend always baked her chocolate chip cookies in a mini-muffin pan to share when we took our children to the swimming pool. She told me it was like baking cookies on a cookie sheet - just test for doneness. Glad I gave it a try.

How to Make Mini-Muffin Tin Chocolate Chip cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Use PAM Baking Spray to inside of the mini-muffin pan.
  2. In a medium size bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. With an electric mixer, beat white sugar, brown sugar, and butter together until creamy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating slightly after each addition. Add vanilla extract and beat again for a couple seconds.
  4. Add flour mixture slowly until mixed. Then stir in semi-sweet mint chocolate chips.
  5. Chill dough in mixing bowl for about 20 minutes before forming into small balls (about 1-inch). Now place in mini-muffin tin and add 2 to 4 mini chips or pecan nut on top and press slightly to fit pan.
  6. Bake 7 to 8 minutes or until done (edges start to brown). Remove from oven and cool in mini-muffin tin for 10 minutes. You may need to use a small knife or thin spatula to remove cookies from pan.
  7. TIP: If using this recipe to bake regular cookies on a cookie sheet, increase time: 9 to 11 minutes.
