I am excited to share this recipe with you today! I didn’t think it was possible to make a cookie in the microwave and have it actually have the texture of a real cookie, but it’s possible!
I came across a recipe for chocolate chip cookie in a mug. You know how much I love my mug recipes. I didn’t have too high hopes. I had tried other cookie in a mug recipes before, but they never satisfied my cravings for a real cookie. But I decided to try it out, and I was surprised when a solid cookie popped out.
Not a cakey cookie or a slightly-denser-than-cake-so-we’ll-call-it-a-cookie type of cookie. But a genuine cookie. With crunch and all. The only issue I had was that when I made it in the mug, it looked quite ugly because I wasn’t able to shape the cookie. Also it was hard to get the cookie to pop out in one piece. Mine crumbled in several pieces.
So after gobbling up my first attempt, I immediately did it again. This time though, I opted to not make it in a mug. I mixed the ingredients with a fork in a small bowl. Once the dough came together, I grabbed the dough and formed a cookie shape. Then I put it on a piece of paper towel on top of small plate and popped it into the microwave. And out came a perfectly formed cookie.
Give the cookie a little time to cool so it gets the crunchy texture, but after a few minutes you have an honest to goodness delicious cookie that satisfies chocolate chip cookie cravings.

Note: I didn't have vanilla essence so I just used a 1/8 tsp of vanilla extract
Melt butter in small bowl or mug in microwave. Add in all remaining ingredients except chocolate chips into the bowl/mug and mix with a fork until dough is formed. Then stir in chocolate chips. Scoop dough out into hands and mold into cookie shape. Place on small plate lined with paper towel or parchment paper. Microwave for about 50 seconds until cookie is set. Let cookie cool and firm up before eating.
