Cookie in a Mug

 

Floating around the internet is this very popular recipe for making a chocolate chip cookie in a mug in the microwave in less than 5 minutes.  Last year when Mike and I were abroad, this was our go-to dessert when we just needed a little something sweet after dinner to carry us through our studying.  The recipe is extremely simple, and I recommend you give it a try!

First, in a mug (or ramekin as I used here) melt 1 Tbs. butter.

Second, add 1 Tbs. of sugar and 1 Tbs. brown sugar.  Mix it all together (I think a fork is the easiest mixing tool for this recipe).

Third, add 1 egg yolk and 1 tsp. of vanilla extract.  Mix well.IMG_2302Fourth, throw in a pinch of salt and 3 Tbs. flour.  Mix mix mix!

Fifth, add 2 Tbs. chocolate chips.  Mix the chips in and use a knife to get all the goodness off of your fork and into the mug.

Sixth, microwave for 40-60 seconds.  I find that if you use a shallow mug/ramekin you will need less time.  I microwaved this one for 45 seconds and it was perfect.  You will know it is done because the top is firm and a bit springy when you touch it.IMG_2306

Now the best part – EATING

I like to pour some cold milk right on top of the cookie and dig in, adding more milk later if I wish.IMG_2307See – SO easy.
