2-Minute Chocolate Chip Cookie For One


This is one of those ‘I-need-a-cookie-right-now-or-I-die’ recipes that can be prepared in almost no time.

We all know that kind of situation, don’t we? I definitely do, I confess.

And you know what? This impressive cookie not only takes less than 5 minutes to prepare, it tastes really delicious. Just like a good chocolate chip cookie.

The preparation is beyond easy… just have a look…



First you need this stuff.




1. Place the butter and sugars in a 2-cup bowl or ramekin. Use a fork to combine all these ingredients.



2. Beat an egg and add two tablespoons of the egg mixture into the bowl. Add the vanilla too. Stir to combine.




3. Add the flour, baking soda and salt. Give it another good stir.




4. Finally, stir in the yummy chocolate chips.




Save a few for the top, if you wish to.

5. For the magic to happen, pop the mixture in your microwave oven and let it bake for about 2 minutes.







6. Top with a lovely scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle with some melted chocolate.

Enjoy, dear friends! This is good, good, good, good, good. Good it is.

(This yummy recipe was adapted from picky-palate.com. Makes a cookie for one.)

    Thank you for the recipe! I gave it a try and had some problems, though. I reduced the sugar to 1 tbsp each (which usually has no effect on my cookies). I think perhaps there was too much baking soda? Next time I’m going to try 1/8 tsp. The cookie turned out HUGE, taking over the whole bowl, and the resulting texture was dry. I improvised and poured some condensed milk over the whole thing, and -voilà!- the Una Leche 2 Minute Microwave Cookie-Cake (working title) was born. Thanks again, and I will write back next time I have a midnight snack-attack!

    Bunnie says:

    This was fun! However, I also ended up with a cake-ie, so I would definitely recommend reducing the baking soda. Also, about 1:30-2:00 on high heat did the trick in my microwave.

    This is a good microwave cake though, the batter didn’t instantly dry out and become all gross in the microwave.

    stephanie harsh says:

    I love this idea. I mean, if I’m gonna drag out all the ingredients, I kinda think I should just make a whole batch, but then again… a whole batch of cookies is the last thing I need. (Could totally go for some cookies right now.)

    Pam says:

    I hate to burst your bubble but this yummy cookie for one is over 800 calories without the ice cream and syrup. It sounds delicious but quite a hefty price.

    Kristen says:

    That cookie was really fast and I ate it super fast sharing it with someone. It was pretty big and more like a cookie for 4! It was foamy-ish on top, but still better then I expected. Hahaha 🙂 i will definitely make this again.

    Sandra says:

    Just tried tried this but without the ice cream. :[ It has a real chocolate chip cookie taste and makes a cookie large enough to share! Next time I’ll use less salt and make sure I have ice cream in the freezer! A good snack and I think kids would have fun with this!

    So, throwing this into a nutrition analyzer, I get: 758 calories, including 24.7g of saturated fat (124% RDA). Thoughts on making this a bit more healthy? The butter and the chocolate chips are obviously the biggest offenders. Have you tried any classic more-healthy baking substitutes? Peanut butter, oil, or margarine (with soymilk) for butter, fruit bits for the chocolate chips? These things work in the oven, but I’m not sure about the microwave.

      Hey! So, I tried this recipe gluten-free and with margarine… and it worked fine. =D I way decreased the baking soda though.

      Mr. Richard,

      If anyone would eat a Cookie like this, they do not care about their healthy anyways! Sad, but so true.

    Kelly says:

    Hi Petra, if the dough cooks in the microwave oven will it be the same texture as in the oven or is the point to have it not fully cooked?

  22. 22
    Katie says:

    What a delightful recipe to indulge in. I love chocolate and am a huge fan of vanilla ice cream. Yes’ you’re right. There are times when you need a fresh, gorgeous smelling dessert to satiate your taste buds and what better than a cookie that takes less than 5 minutes to cook. I’d follow it up with an irresistible cup of hot creamy coffee and will go straight to heaven 🙂

    Hey! I tried this with GREAT success! I’d like to say, though, I reduced the baking soda by about half and used gluten-free all-purpose flour! So… just wanted to say that this recipe totally worked gluten-free! Also, it worked fine dairy-free with margarine. Probably just as fattening, though. XD

    Liam says:

    I too would recommend using much less baking powder, if you want a moist cookie that is. However, even with the 1/4 of a teaspoon, this was delicious, just more of a fluffy cake than a sticky cookie (which I was expected). This is definitely a recipe I will recommend! Thank you ZoomYummy 🙂

    I’ll pass on anything done with a Microwave. It ruins food at the molecular level. They should banned.

    • 66.1
      George says:

      Actually microwaves preserve the foods molecular structure, since most things that cook in the microwave do so through steam, since the microwaves excite the water molecules. I’m not sure what psuedo-science website you get your information from, but Microwaves do in fact preserve the most nutrients during the cooking process versus any other method, and since it does the job so quickly there isn’t a chance for many of the molecular changes that come in normal cooking, such as the Maillard process or caramelization, until you keep it in for too long.

      • 66.1.1
        Adam says:

        Actually, while microwaving has been overly vilified (I met someone who thought that microwaving water to heat it up was unhealthy somehow), microwaving food actually does reduce nutrient content. I forget how it compares to roasting, sauteing, and frying, but steaming actually preserves the majority of nutrients, while microwaving cuts it to like 50%. Vitamin C, especially, is destroyed with a few minutes of heat, so say goodbye to it when you bake that potato.

        That being said, I don’t look to chocolate chip cookies for my nutrients. They look delicious, but how is the texture?

      Patrick says:

      Shelly, I substituted baking powder with baking soda to great success with this recipe. You need to keep in mind that you have to double or triple the amount of baking powder to compensate but it’s a perfectly reasonable substitute and should work fine. Good luck, and have fun cooking!

    My mom and I tried this and didn’t love it. It had a texture somewhere between a cake and a scone except along the bottom – it was more cookie-like there. We did put it in for an extra fifteen seconds because it didn’t seem done the first time. If you don’t think of it as a cookie it may be better.

This recipe is my favorite because all the other ” mug cookies ” I’ve tried have had a dense, eggy texture that wasn’t very pleasant. But I LOVE LOVE LOOOOOVE this one. And it’s actually very good without chocolate chips.

    Oh, and p.s. – I don’t cook it all the way because I feel it continues to cook after you take it out. But that’s just me! (:

    The worst chocolate chip cookie I ever made. It came out more like bread than cookie. I tried it twice because I couldn’t believe I made it correctly the first time. Good idea, but I think the microwave ruins it. Try a toaster oven. 350 degrees – 10 to 12 min.

    […] Early in my blogging adventure with you (I think at our first provider) I posted a recipe for a chocolate cake for one which was a big hit. It was one of those “recipe in a mug” concoctions that you cook in the microwave for really quick results. I’ve found another one for you! This one is a chocolate chip cookie for one-done in about 10 minutes, they say. Can anyone tell I have a tremendous sweet tooth? I never get this excited over broccoli! Here’s the recipe! […]

    is there a gluten free version?

      Use gluten-free flour called Cup 4 Cup. It works the same as regular flour and doesn’t need to cook for a different amount of time.

    Sitting down with my bowl of cookie and ice-cream. It took 10 minutes from start to finish. I am very pleased with the results. I used too small of a bowl so I had to stop the mic a few times so it wouldn’t overflow. I think that helped it not get dry too. But about 1 minute 45 for me! Yummy Thanks for the recipe! <3

TRY IT! so worth it!

    Leanne says:

    I tried your recipe last night and was pleasantly surprised. After reading comments, I reduced the amount of egg (I used Egg Beaters) to about 1 1/2 Tbsp. It is very rich and will easily serve two or could be split into two bowls before microwaving. In fact, I ate about half, popped the rest out of the bowl and stored in a zip bag for later. Here’s a tip: to make it more cookie-like, let the bowl sit for several minutes after taking out of the microwave. Just like cookies straight out of the oven, if left to cool a bit it sets up and is less like cake.
