Options

Looking for ways to change up these chocolate chip cookies in muffin tin? Here are some suggestions.

Frosted: Instead of sprinkles, frost them with chocolate or vanilla frosting.

Stuffed: Instead of using chocolate chips, make plain cookie dough and press a big chunk of chocolate into the center of each filled muffin tin.

Tips:

  • Never scoop your flour out with your measuring cup. Instead, gently spoon the flour into the cup and level it off with the flat of a knife. This prevents using too much flour.
  • Always pack your brown sugar firmly when measuring.
  • Allow your cookies to cool completely before decorating them with drizzle and sprinkles.
