If you decrease the size of virtually anything, its cuteness factor increases exponentially.
It’s like an irrefutable math equation.
The only exception? Spiders. They are never, ever cute. The only accurate adjectives to describe spiders are gross, disgusting, icky, or an expletive.
Cats? Cute. Little cats? WAY cuter.
Cars? Not so cute, usually. Mini Coopers? Adorable (and I totally want one).
Cookies? Yummy, but not cute. Itty bitty cookies? Yummy AND cute!
These little gems are so delicious – bursting with mini chocolate chips, crunchy around the edges, and delightfully chewy in the middle. Mini perfection!
