Ever feel like having a chocolate chip cookie, but don’t feel like making cookies? I have it all the time. Then I found these Chocolate Chip Crumb Cakes.

I used to buy a frozen version in the grocery store years ago, but they stopped making them.

I saw this great recipe from Anitalianinmykitchen, and decided I would try them out. I bought a new square muffing pan, so thought these would be the perfect cakes to try the pan out with.

Once they were done, I knew I was in for a treat…the smell was just like chocolate chip cookies baking.

These are the perfect mini cakes to bring to any event.
