Jack-Jack Cookie Num Num

If you don’t like chocolate chip cookies I encourage you to stop reading now and go on your merry way back to whatever strange land you came from. It certainly wasn’t Disneyland! That’s because I endeavored to test a copycat recipe for the Jack-Jack Cookie Num Num found at Disneyland California Adventure on Pixar Pier.

Served warm with gooey centers according to @sarahemm my official Cookie Num Num taste tester, these cookies are inspired by the treats that capture Jack-Jack’s attention in Incredibles 2. It’s no wonder these cookies can get that state changing baby to calm down! These cookies are the size of your palm, loaded with chocolate chips and chocolate chunks. With all the buzz they have received since debut I would consider them a classic park snack at this point. Grab a Buzz Churro, an Adorable Snowman Lemon Treat, and a Cookie Num Num for a sugar fueled romp on the Incredicoaster.

Before baking these at home you’ll need a cookie receptacle. In the parks they are bake in papers about five inches in diameter and 1-2 inches high like a tart. I had a hard time finding large enough papers and opted for silicone tart molds from Wilton which I found for a reasonable price on Amazon. Wet ingredients are mixed first and then the dry folded in. Usually I bake this on parchment paper and it slides effortlessly from pan to plate. I love this particular cookie recipe because it is a cookie for one warm from the oven. Perfect for a quick indulgence. Split into two cookies and smear ice cream between the halves for a quick ice cream sandwich. Chill in the fridge, roll into small balls, and drop into vanilla ice cream for quick cookie dough mix-ins. It is also a perfect recipe to customize with different types of baking chips, nuts, or sprinkles in the batter with endless options for toppings.

While working on this recipe I made a couple discoveries: if you like your cookie fully set, split the batter between two tart papers or tart molds. If you enjoy a truly gooey center the way it is served at DCA you’ll have to keep the cookie all to yourself. Unless you’re thoughtful enough double the batter to share with someone!

Copycat recipe for Jack-Jack Cookie Num Num! Chocolate chip cookies for two (or one)... yum yum!

Yield: 2 Cookie Num Nums

2 Tbs salted butter (melted)
3 Tbs brown sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbs whisked egg
1/3 cup flour
1/8 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt
3 Tbs semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 Tbs chocolate chunks

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine butter, brown sugar, vanilla and mix to combine. Mix in egg once butter mixture has cooled slightly. Add flour, baking soda, and salt to the mix. Fold in chocolate chips. Split dough evenly between two silicone tart molds or tart papers. Sprinkle with chocolate chunks and press down lightly. Bake for 12-16 minutes. Cool 5 minutes. Optional: top with ice cream, whipped cream and sprinkles, nuts, and/or chocolate/caramel sauce.

These can be made without papers or molds but you won’t get a gooey center. On parchment they will spread out but will bake up perfectly with set centers. Let me know if you give them a try and if you topped them with anything special. I won’t blame you if you don’t feel like sharing...
