Mickey Mouse Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mickey Mouse Chocolate Chip Cookies

We are REALLLLLY missing Disneyland right now so we are making all of our food Mickey shaped these days. It’s so fun and it makes everything taste better, right? For our most recent Disney food, we turned our chocolate chip cookies into Mickeys. 🙂 

Please notice the bite taken out of the ear!

I used my FAVORITE chocolate chip cookie recipe that I’ll share with you below but you can totally use whatever cookie recipe you’d like.

Making chocolate chip cookies into specific shapes can be tricky because the dough melts and doesn’t really hold a shape. I have a few tips for you to help make your cookies hold that fun mickey shape. 

To make your Mickey cookies, start by rolling some cookie dough into a ball. You can use however much you’d use to make regular cookies. This will make his head. Then roll two MUCH smaller balls to create his ears. Place the ears on either side of the larger dough ball. If you put the “ears” too close together, the cookie will melt into a big blob.

One thing I noticed while trying to get a fun Mickey shape is that if there’s a chocolate chip on the edge of one of the ear balls, it doesn’t quite melt into that nice round shape. It’s not a big deal if it doesn’t make that perfect shape but it’s just something I noticed. 

That’s pretty much it. It’s so easy but makes your cookies much more fun. If you want your cookies to look like the giant, delicious Mickey cookies you can get at Trolley Treats at California Adventure, you can also dunk the tops of your cookies into melted chocolate chips. This makes your cookie look like it’s wearing Mickey ears. Add a squiggle of melted chocolate across the main part of the cookie and it’ll look just like the cookies from Disneyland!

1. Preheat the oven to 350°

2. Cream butter and sugar together. Make sure the butter is room temperature but not melted or the dough will be runny.

3. Add eggs, vanilla, and maple syrup.

4. Add dry ingredients- flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. If the dough seems runny, add a bit of extra flour.

5. Mix in chocolate chips.

6. Roll dough into balls (or mickeys) and place them on a GREASED cookie sheet or a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper.

7. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes. (I prefer my cookies “underbaked” so I never have them cook longer than 8 minutes. 

8. Press in extra chocolate chips on top of the cookies if desired. Let the cookies cool before removing them from the tray. (If the Mickeys are picked up while still hot, the ears may fall off.)

9. Optional. Melt a cup of chocolate chips and dunk the tops of the cookies in melted chocolate. Using a piping bag or a sandwich bag with the tip cut off, pipe a chocolate squiggle on the main part of the cookie.

Notes: This cookie dough is SO good when chilled! If the cookies are dipped in melted chocolate, they taste extra yummy when chilled.
