{VIDEO} Small-Batch Celebration Cookies (chocolate chip cookies with white chocolate morsels & rainbow sprinkles)

Ok, these are my absolute favorite cookies in the ENTIRE WORLD. These rich, buttery cookies are studded with semisweet AND white chocolate morsels with a rainbow of colorful sprinkles peeking through the top.

I made sure these cookies had nice crisp edges and a melt in your mouth chewy center, because that is just the way I like them :) and this twist on my favorite small-batch chocolate chip cookie recipe is just so much more fun and great for parties or special occasions.

I also gave the option for small and large batch recipes for these cookies because, sometimes you just a want to whip up for a quick after dinner dessert so you can indulge in a late night treat without over doing it, or to put out when you have company over, without having a plate of leftover cookies tempting you the next day... and other times, you're looking for a recipe that makes a big plate of fresh-out-of-the-oven cookies to serve at a party or package up to give as a special gift to make someones day a little sweeter.

All you need is one bowl, so to start, simply beat together the butter and sugars.

Next beat in the wet ingredients. I use a combo of vanilla, milk and just the egg yolk for an ultra rich, flavorful and chewy, never cakey, cookie. (I always save the whites for a healthy egg white omelet or a small-batch of my low-fat/gluten-free Flourless Chocolate Cookies so they never go to waste!

When baking in small batches, every little bit of ingredient makes a big difference in the outcome, so be sure to watch my video on How To Properly Measure Flour, to avoid accidentally adding too much flour, which will create dry, dense cookies, that don't spread properly. After you have weighed or measure out your flour, slowly stir it in.

Here comes the best part... Fold in the chocolate chips.

Then you can add in any other type of mix-ins you want!  I chose white chocolate chips and rainbow sprinkles for these cookies.

Scoop onto 8 mounds onto a baking sheet. I usually line my baking sheet with parchment paper for less spreading. My small-batch cookie recipes make 8 delicious cookies that fit perfectly on a cookie sheet. Then, bake until centers are puffed and edges are beginning to set.


Celebration Cookies {Small Batch}

Yield: 8 cookies*
*For a larger batch, double recipe below, replacing the egg yolk and milk with 1 whole large egg.

  • 3/4 cup (90g) all-purpose flour, weighed or spooned and leveled
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted (browned if desired)
  • 5 tablespoons packed brown sugar 
  • 3 tablespoons granulated white sugar 
  • 1 egg yolk 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon milk 
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 
  • 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 3 tablespoons white chocolate chips
  • 2 tablespoons rainbow sprinkles


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt in a small bowl; set aside. With an electric mixer, beat together melted butter and sugars on medium speed for about two minutes. On low speed, add the egg yolk, milk and vanilla extract. Gradually add the flour mixture just until incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips and sprinkles with a spatula or wooden spoon. Scoop 8 mounds of dough onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. If dough is too soft, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour or up to 48 hours.

Bake in preheated oven for 11-13 minutes or until edges just start to turn golden brown but centers are still soft and puffy. Do not over bake. Let cookies cool for about 2 minutes on baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack. Serve warm or cool completely and enjoy!
