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.

    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!

    this is better than another recipe i saw before. it called for equal parts sugar and flour!

    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.

    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.)

    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.

    I like to replace the chocolate chips with toffee bits, or go half-n-half. So good!

    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.

    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?

    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 :)

    Lhyrre says:

    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

    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 :)
