What is a Jack Jack Num Num Cookie?
First things first, in case you’re wondering what the heck I’m talking about! If you visit Hollywood Studios or California Adventure Park, you will find this cookie inspired by Jack Jack from The Incredibles. They’re basically giant chocolate cookies with chocolate chunks that are served warm.
They are AMAZING, and the great news is that you can easily make Disney copycat num nums at home. Although, if you happen to visit Disney, definitely treat yourself to the original! It’s one of my favorite Disney treats.

Ingredients in Num Num Cookies
- Cubed Cold Butter: That’s right – these start with COLD unsalted butter!
- Sugar: Use both brown sugar and granulated sugar
- Eggs: Always buy large eggs, no need for them to be room temperature.
- Vanilla extract: Aways buy pure vanilla!
- All-purpose flour: Be sure to measure it correctly
- Cornstarch: Adds both softness and chewiness to cookies.
- Baking powder: Makes these a bit softer in the center.
- Salt: Needed since we start with unsalted butter
- Chocolate: Use BOTH Mini chocolate chips AND chocolate chunks!
How to Make Copycat Disney Cookies
- Preheat the oven to 350°F and place nine 4” shallow paper baking cups on a large baking sheet.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer (or with a hand mixer), cream the butter and sugar for two to three minutes or until the mixture is fluffy. Mix in the eggs and vanilla.
- Add the flour, baking powder, salt, and cornstarch and mix at low speed until the flour is absorbed. Add the mini chocolate chips and half of the chocolate chunks and mix until they are evenly distributed in the dough.
- Scoop ½ cup of cookie dough into each baking cup.
- Once the dough is in the cups, gently press it into an even layer.
- Press the remaining chocolate chunks on top of the dough in each baking cup.
- Bake the cookies for 20 to 30 minutes or until they’re lightly golden brown on top. Allow them to cool for a few minutes before eating.
Cornstarch gives the cookies the best soft texture. It also helps them stay soft after they’ve cooked.
If you visit California Adventure Park, look for Jack Jack num num cookies near the Incredicoaster. Or, you can also find them near Toy Story Land at Hollywood Studios at Disneyland.
You can buy the paper cups on Amazon.
Use mini chocolate chips and chocolate chunks! If you can’t find chunks, you can use the same amount for regular chocolate chips.
Nope! You can use cold butter.
I recommend using an electric mixer. It’s the easiest (and fastest) way to cream the butter and sugar. A hand mixer is fine, but a stand mixer works best.
Store cooled num num cookies in an airtight container, and they will keep well for up to three days at room temperature. Or you can freeze them in a freezer bag for up to three months.
It’s so fun to make Disney cookies at home, and these copycat Jack Jack num nums are a great one to try! If you love warm and melty chocolate chips cookies, I can promise they won’t disappoint. You will love them!
