I often turn to my microwave when I get a craving for something sweet but don’t want to make a big dessert. I’ve made lots of mug cakes, which are my favorite way to cure a sweet craving, but until now I’ve never tried making a cookie in the microwave. After I found a mug cookie recipe on Art of Dessert, I couldn’t wait to try it.overhead photo of the cookie inside the mug

Microwave Cookie

Making a chocolate chip mug cookie is fast and easy with minimal clean-up. It’s important to point out that it’s not the same as a batch of cookies baked in the oven. The texture is different but it still tastes like a chocolate chip cookie and totally hits the spot when you want something sweet.

How to Make a Mug Cookie

While this cookie may not taste exactly like an oven-baked one, it only takes three minutes to make! Once it’s done you get a cookie that looks like a fat chocolate chip cookie.

First, place the butter and milk in a microwave-safe mug. Place the mug in the microwave and cook the milk and butter for 30 seconds increments until the butter has melted.

Add the vanilla, brown sugar, flour and chocolate chips and stir until combined.

Microwave the cookie for 1 minute on high. Cool the cookie for five minutes before serving

Since making this cookie I’ve also made Microwave Snickerdoodle Cookies which are fast and easy. Or, for a mug cake version, check out my Chocolate Chip Mug Cake.

  1. Sounds super good gotta try this one!!!

  2. more like a cake, had to eat it with a fork!

  3. The cookie looks super
    I just have to try this recipe

  4. Nevermind, I figured out what I did.

    • The choc chips should only melt slightly. It’s like baking cookies, they don’t completely melt and once they cool down they solidify.

  5. Hold on a sec, how are the chocolate chips not melted??

  6. this is what i always thought of but never actually did! im so excited

  7. What a cute idea, I’m definitely going to try this soon.
