- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon firmly packed light brown sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- A pinch of salt
- 1 egg yolk
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons chocolate chips
Place the unsalted butter in a microwave-safe mug.
Microwave for about 10-15 seconds or until the butter is melted.
Add Sugars and Vanilla:
Stir in the granulated sugar and light brown sugar into the melted butter. Add the vanilla extract and a pinch of salt. Mix well until the sugars are fully incorporated.
Add Egg Yolk:
Add the egg yolk to the mug and stir until well combined. Make sure to use only the yolk for a richer texture.
Mix in Flour:
Add the all-purpose flour to the mug and mix until a soft cookie dough forms. Ensure that the flour is fully incorporated without overmixing.
Add Chocolate Chips:
Gently fold in the chocolate chips into the cookie dough. Save a few chips to sprinkle on top for a more visually appealing presentation.
Microwave the Cookie:
Microwave the mug on high for 40-60 seconds, depending on your microwave’s wattage. Keep a close eye to prevent overcooking; the cookie should be slightly gooey in the center.
Let it Cool:
Allow the mug to cool for a minute before indulging in your warm and gooey Chocolate Chip Cookie. Be cautious as the mug will be hot.
Optional: Top with Ice Cream or Whipped Cream:
For an extra treat, top your mug cookie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
Grab a spoon and savor the warm, homemade goodness of your single-serving Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Mug.
