Mini Monster Cookies

Day 11 of The 12 Cookies of Christmas

Like these, but smaller :)

Back in August, I had shared my new recipe for "Mild-Mannered Monster Cookies," so named because they are a toned-down, somewhat healthier version of the popular M&M behemoths. For Christmas, I'm going to take them down one more notch and make them mini. (Strange to say that, I know, as I'm usually in favor of kicking it up a notch, like Emeril.) If these were not made smaller, however, they could easily overwhelm the other cookies on a cookie platter. It's all in the proportions.

Proposed modifications

  • A scantier scoop

Use a 1" cookie scoop to measure out the dough, instead of an ice cream scoop.

  • Change the chocolate

Substitute white chocolate chips for the semisweet, and nix the decorative drizzle.

And that's it! What a simple way to go from mega to mini! I think these cookies are a good choice for the holidays too, with their subtle Christmas colors of red cranberries and white chocolate.

One more cookie left! Whatever will I choose to bake? Something with butter.. though that doesn't give much away, does it? Looks like you'll have to endure a cookie cliffhanger! Hehe.

'Til next time,
