Chocolate Chip Cookies in a Cup

I have a new passion – or perhaps it would be more accurate to say addiction – for single serve, microwave desserts in a cup.  This is absolutely the most brilliant invention ever.  It's quick - from the decision to make it, to eating is less than five minutes.  It's easy - all you need is a measuring spoon and a mug, really; and it leaves no more mess behind than that, either, and no extras to store.  And it's delicious!  It is easily as good as most storebought cookies, and better than many homemade ones I've tried.

This particular recipe is the first one I tried, and while it is not perfect, it is easy to try, and quite good enough to hook me!


  • 1 Tbs Butter
  • 1 Tbs Dark Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tbs Granulated Sugar
  • A few drops Vanilla Extract
  • 1 small pinch Salt
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 3 1/2 Tbs All-Purpose Flour (slightly less)
  • 1 Tbs Chocolate Chips


  1. Melt the butter in your mug.
  2. Add ingredients to the mug in order, stirring well after each addition.
  3. Microwave for 40-70 seconds, checking after each 10 seconds starting at 40, until you know how long it takes your microwave.  If your cookie ends up more cake-like, reduce cooking time.
