If you know me, you know I love a copycat Disney recipe, and today I have an amazing one: a copycat Jack Jack cookie num num recipe!

These giant warm chocolate chip cookies are so good. They’re soft with tons of melty chocolate, and I’m showing you how to make them, so they’re just like the original.

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.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  • The cookies are really soft with double the chocolate with chocolate chips and chocolate chunks!
  • I love this recipe because you don’t have to wait for the butter to soften, and you don’t have to chill the dough, so there’s no waiting around.
  • The best part is that you don’t have to book a trip to treat yourself to a batch of Disney num nums from Incredibles! It’s so fun to make Disney food at home, and this is a great one to try.

Ingredients in Incredibles 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 Num Num Cookies

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and place nine 4” shallow paper baking cups on a large baking sheet.

2. 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.

3. 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.

Expert Tips

  • For the best copycat num nums, use the paper liners. You can buy them on Amazon or at kitchen/discount stores (like Ross).
  • If you can’t find them, you can also bake the cookies in a muffin pan. Line it with muffin liners and fill each with two to three scoops of dough. It should get about 18 to 24 cookies.
  • Use a ¼ cup cookie scoop to make measuring the dough easy. Each liner should have two scoops totaling ½ cup of dough for a giant num num cookie!
  • Don’t mix all of the chocolate chunks into the dough – save half of them to press onto the tops of the cookies, so they look and taste like the originals.
  • For the best soft texture, don’t overbake the cookies.
  • Put your spin on them and mix in some chopped nuts to the dough or add some sprinkles on top.

FAQ

Why is there cornstarch in the recipe?

Cornstarch gives the cookies the best soft texture. It also helps them stay soft after they’ve cooked.

Where can I find Jack Jack num nums cookies?

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.

Where do I buy the paper cups to bake num num cookies in?

You can buy the paper cups on Amazon.

What chocolate is best to make copycat Disney cookies?

Use mini chocolate chips and chocolate chunks! If you can’t find chunks, you can use the same amount for regular chocolate chips.

Do I have to soften the butter to make a num num cookie?

Nope! You can use cold butter.

Do I have to use a mixer?

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.

How to store and freeze cookies?

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 desserts 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!

  1. Do you use regular size cupcake liners or a different size? I didn’t see a size specified for the paper cups.

    1. I just updated the post – but if you search “shallow baking cups” on amazon you can find them – 3-4 inches diameter.
