These itty bitty cookie bites are teeny tiny and tons of fun. Easy to make, this inspirational recipe will show you the best way to dial down your favorite cookie recipe into a munchable bowl of mini cookies.
I originally saw this idea on my TikTok page by a random person board in quarantine and though…ok, now that is fun!
Using just about any pre-packaged cookie dough, you can easily cut down into tiny little bites of dough, bake, and then enjoy baby bites.
The only danger is eating all 72 yourself (trust me). Pre-packaged cookies already have the perfect consistency, are easy to cut, and come in a ton of flavors from sugar cookie to candy bar flavors, so choose your favorite!
- 1 pre-package, 16 oz, premade chocolate chip cookies (break and bake)

What kinds of Cookies to Use?
The great thing about working with pre-made ingredients is that there really are so many flavors.
In the dairy aisle where you get prepackaged cookies, I like chocolate chip cookies, but there are tons of varieties, so pick your favorite.
I used Mrs. Field’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate. The package said 12 big cookies, which dictated how I cut the cookies.
Can you use a cookie recipe?
You can use your very favorite chocolate chip cookie recipe to recreate this idea and just make teeny tiny cookie bites in the oven.
Just make sure you do not have super spreadable cookie dough or they may be larger than you want.
Can I make Cookies Tinier?
YES! You can! Cut them down every smaller. I show two sizes in the video, a small size based on this article and we went back and made them even tinier with M&M cookies.
The cook time was about the same but its always good to watch and take them out right before you think they are done because they cook a bit still on the tray after taking out.
How to make Mini Cookies
Preheat oven to 325 and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Break off one cookie and cut it into 6ths.
Roll into a small ball and place onto the prepared baking sheet.
Repeat until the sheet is full, keeping cookies about 2″ apart.
Bake for 8 minutes (or check your package for suggested baking times and adjust as needed).
When cooking is complete, remove from oven and let stand on baking sheet for one minute before moving to a cooling rack to cool completely.

About serving size- because this package had 1 cookie per person, each serving size is actually 6 miniature cookies, which is the equivalent to 1 large cookie. However many pieces you break your cookies down to will be your serving size.
