Mini Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

– Posted in: Food
Mini Chocolate Chip Cupcakes - when all you want is a little bite of something sweet. Delicious, and easy to transport.

I just love this recipe!  These Chocolate Chip Cupcakes are “mini” sized, which makes them perfect for those times when people want something a little sweet, but don’t want to eat a big piece of cake or a full-sized cupcake.  That old familiar saying … “a little piece will do ya” certainly applies here.  After a big meal (such as a Thanksgiving), these would make for a sweet ending.  They are easy to transport as well, making this recipe an excellent choice for family gatherings.

Mini Chocolate Chip Cupcakes

I modified the original recipe slightly (source unknown), substituting mini chocolate morsels for the bigger-sized morsels.


  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup "mini" semisweet chocolate morsels
  • 1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract, divided
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt


  1. Stir together 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 egg, and 1/8 tsp. salt in medium bowl.
  2. Stir in chocolate morsels, pecans, and 1/2 tsp. vanilla. Cover and chill in refrigerator.
  3. Beat remaining 1/2 tsp. vanilla, butter, 1/3 cup granulated sugar, and 1/3 cup brown sugar at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy.
  4. Add remaining egg and beat until blended.
  5. Combine flour, baking soda, and 1/2 tsp. salt; stir into butter mixture until blended.
  6. Place baking cups into miniature muffin pans, and coat cups generously with cooking spray.
  7. Spoon approximately 1 1/2 tsp. batter into each cup.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes.
  9. Spoon chocolate morsel mixture over cupcakes; bake for 10 more minutes.
