It's official. I am now obsessed with microwavable desserts in a mug.

It started a few weeks ago when I made 60-second brownies. They were fantastic and way too easy. And so my fixation began...

This time, I tried out this deep dish chocolate chip cookie recipe. And of course, because microwave mug fake baking is the best thing ever, it also did not disappoint. After two minutes of scrambling around my kitchen and 60 seconds of staring at the microwave, I had a soft, chewy chocolate chip cookie set before me.

It reminded me of a cookie cake, so naturally I dolloped on some chocolate frosting and kindly shared it with my man. Good times.

Here's how to make it:

You'll need

  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar (light or dark)
  • 3 drops vanilla extract
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 tbsp chocolate chips (but really, as many as you'd like)
  • A mug, deep dish, or ramekin + a microwave


    Place the butter in mug and melt in the microwave.

    Stir in sugars, vanilla and egg yolk until combined.

    Sprinkle in salt and flour and mix until a dough forms. If needed, add a splash of water to moisten.

    Mix is as many chocolate chips as your little heart desires and stick in the microwave for 40-60 seconds. Check for doneness and microwave for up to another 30 seconds if needed.

    Eat it straight from the mug as is or serve it with a dollop of frosting, a drizzle of chocolate sauce, or a scoop of ice cream. Or just do all three. Is that to much?
