Mini Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookies




I meant to post this little recipe on Valentine's Day, but I must have forgotten to hit "publish".  So here's a little post-Valentine's love for you all!

I thought I'd share a recipe that published as a guest post last month, just in case you missed it!

It is a fun little twist of everyone's favorite: the classic chocolate chip cookie.

By making the cookies bite sized and dipping them in chocolate (actually mint chocolate is my favorite) and adding a few sprinkles, the humble chocolate chipper is ready for a kids’ party, a holiday, or even a nice dinner party!

And just for fun...

Isn't the Valentine's bouquet I received from my boys just lovely?


And here's my attempt at Valentine's nails!


I hope you all had a lovely Valentine's Day!


Mini Dipped Chocolate Chip Cookies

1 cup vegetable shortening or butter
¾ cup granulated sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
Dash of salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 ½ cups all purpose flour
1 (12 oz) bag mini semi sweet chocolate chips
12 oz dark or mint chocolate, for dipping


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine the shortening (or butter) and sugars and beat until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition.  Stir in vanilla and beat until fluffy.

Turn the mixer to low and stir in the baking soda, salt, and flour.  Stir in the mini chips until evenly distributed.

For mini cookies, spoon teaspoons full of batter onto baking sheets and bake in the preheated oven for 6-8 minutes or until browned.

Move the cookies to wire racks to cool completely.

Once cooled, melt the dark or mint chocolate in the microwave or a double boiler.  Dip one end of each cookie into the melted chocolate.  Set on a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet to set.  Add sprinkles while the chocolate is still wet, if desired.
