These chocolaty, deep dish Incredibles-inspired Num Num Cookies are so good you might feel like a superhero every time you make them!
When you love the “Most Magical Place on Earth” making copy-cat recipes, like these amazing Num Num Cookies, can be a really fun and scrumptious way to enjoy your favorite place at home! Thick and chewy Num Num Cookies are made using pantry staples and lots of chocolate. Plus, they’re baked in paper liners, so they’re big, and Jack Jack approved!
We all have our favorite Incredibles character, but I think everyone can agree they love baby Jack-Jack. He’s an adorable baby with many superhero talents, so he’s hard not to love! When Disney published their Jack Jack-inspired Num Num Cookies, I knew my family would flip if we didn’t make these immediately, so I got out all of my cookie-making ingredients and went to work. I don’t even have a word for how great these cookies are- every chewy, chocolaty, sweet, and salty bite was just too delicious! I didn’t have to wait for any ingredients to warm up or for the dough to chill either, so making them was almost as fast as eating them!
Disney always knows what they’re doing when it comes to delicious, iconic food, so it’s great when you can make treats that make you feel like you’re there, like Grand Floridian Chocolate Chip Cookies and Pineapple Banana Whip!

Pantry Items: To make these cookies, you will need all-purpose flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, cornstarch, baking powder, salt, and vanilla extract.
Wet Ingredients: Make sure to have salted butter and a few eggs. The butter must be cold to make these cookies, so don’t set it out beforehand.
Chocolate: Bring a lot of chocolate to this party using mini semi-sweet chocolate chips and semi-sweet chocolate chunks.
Liners: To keep these cookies large and thick, you will need to bake them in cookie liners.
How to Make Num Num Cookies
STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line a baking sheet with nine paper baking cups. Using a stand mixer or a large bowl a hand mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together. When the mix is fluffy, add the eggs and vanilla extract and mix until combined.
STEP TWO: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cornstarch, and baking powder. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the mixer until everything is well incorporated.
STEP THREE: Fold in the mini chocolate chips and half of the chocolate chunks and mix until the chocolate is evenly distributed.
STEP FOUR: Scoop 1/2 cup of dough into each cookie liner and lightly press more chocolate chunks into the tops of each cookie.
STEP FIVE: Bake the cookies for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Let the cookies cool for five minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
Tips for Success
- Cookie liners can be found online or in home goods stores like Marshall’s or TJMaxx. The liners used for this recipe were 4-inch shallow paper baking cups with sides that were over an inch.
- You can also make these cookies without the liners too! Drop the cookies by the spoonful for regular-sized cookies, or scoop out up to a 1/4 cup of dough to make large cookies. The cookies will spread and won’t have the cookie cup shape, but they will taste amazing.
- Spraying the cookie liners with a little non-stick spray before adding the dough can help prevent any sticking issues.
