Trying out a recipe for a 5 minute chocolate chip cookie was already a little dangerous…and then I made a Nutella version.
It’s been less than 24 hours since I made the first one and I’ve already made 6 more.
The recipe spreads more than the regular chocolate chip one so it ends up creating one giant cookie. If you have some self control you can share the cookie with a loved one. I did try to make two cookies, but for some reason the texture wasn’t quite right when I divided the dough in half to make two cookies.
This cookie is just as easy to make as the chocolate chip cookie and just as yummy. You throw everything into a small bowl or mug and mix it with a fork and then with your hands. Pop it in the microwave for less than a minute and it’s ready to go.
Because this cookie spreads, it’s a little delicate when you first remove it from the microwave, so make sure you have a plate underneath so that the cookie doesn’t break while you remove it from the microwave. After you let it cool, the cookie comes together and becomes more sturdy. Though if you don’t care about eating a cookie shape, you can just devour it warm.
5 Minute Nutella Cookie
Prep Time: 4 mins
Cook Time: 50 seconds
Total Time: 5 mins
1 tbsp butter
2 tbsp packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg yolk
1 tbsp Nutella
1/4 cup flour
1 1/2 tbsp chocolate chips
1. Melt butter for 20 seconds in a small bowl or mug. Add in sugar, vanilla, egg yolk, Nutella, and flour. Mix with a fork until dough comes together.Dough might still be loose so you can use your hands to help thoroughly mix the dough and have the Nutella mixed in. Add in the chocolate chips and mix into the dough.
2. Shape the dough into shape of a cookie. Place on plate lined with parchment paper. Microwave for 50 seconds. Cookie will spread and should looked cooked but still delicate/breaks apart easily. Let cookie cool and firm up before eating.
