Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup

Have you seen these 1 minute Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup recipes on the internet?

To tell the truth, I’ve been reluctant to try it because I thought it would be gooey in the center and I don’t like gooey things.  And I love chocolate chip cookies so I thought if I want a chocolate chip cookie I’m just going to make chocolate chip cookies.  But making cookies takes a good chunk of time and the idea of the mug cookie popped into my thoughts the other day so I decided to just give it a try and if I didn’t like it I wouldn’t ever need to make it again.

It actually took less than 1 minute to cook in the microwave – 55 seconds, actually.  As you can see in the above picture the texture is soft and cakey, but not gooey at all.

I let it cool completely and then topped it with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream.  For those of you that like warm cookies and melted ice cream you could scoop on the ice cream before your cookie cools.

Even down towards the bottom of the mug cookie it was completely cooked through.  I really liked the fact that I didn’t have a whole batch of cookies begging to be eaten and this amount satisfied my chocolate chip cookie craving.  It was a perfect, quick one person dessert.

Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 3 drops vanilla extract
  • a small pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • a scant 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips (or 2 tablespoons regular chocolate chips)


  1. Melt the butter in the microwave. The butter should just be melted, not boiling.
  2. Add the sugars, vanilla, and salt. Stir to combine.
  3. Add the egg yolk and stir to combine.
  4. Add in the flour and stir to mix well.
  5. Add in the chocolate chips and give it a final stir. Now your mixture will look like cookie dough.
  6. Cook it in the microwave 40-60 seconds. Start checking for doneness at 40 seconds. Mine took 55 seconds. Do not cook past one minute.
  7. Enjoy!


I mixed my cookie dough in a 2-cup measuring cup then put it in a cup for baking. I think the whole idea of a mug cookie is to mix it and bake it in the same cup. But I wasn't sure which size cup to use. Since the dough amount is fairly small a regular mug will be too big - I used a tea cup that holds about 3/4 cup liquid and it filled the cup about half way.
