I have a confession.
My impulses got the best of me this morning! I was working on my computer and someone had the audacity to pin a picture of a chocolate chip cookie in a cup and I was COMPLETELY DISTRACTED!
I literally couldn’t concentrate on what I was working on anymore! Darn you Pinterest! :-) So I figured I might as well go and try it out since I was obsessing over it anyway. And boy oh boy…I must have had some intuition about this….because it was YUMMMMMY!!!
SO yummy I also feel compelled to SHARE IT!
You see, I’ve seen lots of “cake in a mug” recipes around….but this is the first time I saw anyone try making a chocolate chip cookie in one! I like cake OK…but chocolate chip cookies??? Shut the front door!
I immediately started searching for the appropriate cup to make my cookie in…and wouldn’t you know it…I could only find this extra-large soup/mug! So I HAD to double the recipe…I had no choice! ;-)
So that’s what I did. I doubled this original recipe from Melissa at No. 2 Pencil (THANK YOU Melissa! You are my new best friend!) and essentially created an XL cookie in a mug!
I also made the exact same recipe but used gluten free baking mix for my No. 2 son with Celiac’s.
And the BEAUTIFUL thing is my chocolate chip cookie craving is now satisfied…and I don’t have another couple dozen cookies laying around tempting me to eat them as well! :-) yay!!!
Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup
1 Tablespoon Butter
1 Tablespoon Granulated White Sugar
1 Tablespoon Dark Brown Sugar (I used light brown sugar)
3 Drops of Vanilla Extract
Small Pinch of Kosher Salt
1 Egg Yolk (discard the egg white)
Scant 1/4 of All Purpose Flour (I used a full 1/4 cup. I also made it a second time with GF Flour)
2 Tablespoons of Semi Sweet Chocolate Chips (I used milk chocolate chips)
Start by melting your butter in the microwave. Add sugars, vanilla and salt. Stir to combine. Separate your egg and add the yolk only to your cup. Stir to combine. Add flour, then stir again. Add the chocolate chips, and give a final stir. Cook in microwave 40-60 seconds, start checking for doneness at 40 seconds. Mine takes 50 seconds.
(The double cookie was done at 60 seconds in my microwave.)
