When you get a chocolate chip cookie craving but don’t want to make a big batch this microwave cookie is a great way to satisfy your craving! Plus, you only need three minutes to make it – it’s a super easy way to get a cookie fix.
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.
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.

more like a cake, had to eat it with a fork!
I agree this is more like a cakey cookie. I found another recipe I liked much better: https://kirbiecravings.com/2012/11/5-minute-cookie.html
The cookie looks super
I just have to try this recipe
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.
Hold on a sec, how are the chocolate chips not melted??
this is what i always thought of but never actually did! im so excited
It’s not exactly your typical cookie, but it is cookie-like.
What a cute idea, I’m definitely going to try this soon.
