Actually, all I had intended to do was make mini chocolate chip cookies… until my daughter said, “I want to put sprinkles on them!”
How did I ever come up with creative ideas before I had a 3-year-old to guide me???
Anyway, as you can see from the batter, we actually poured the sprinkles right into the mix so they would be spread throughout the miniature cookies.
And when we scooped them onto the cookie trays to bake, we made them smaller than normal, about a half of a teaspoon each.
Perfect for elf-sized hands. :)
