Microwave 2-minute Chocolate Chip Cookie for One

Microwave 2-minute Chocolate Chip Cookie for One

I love the idea of making sweets in a microwave in just a few minutes. I’d made some microwave cakes before and they were so amazing! I should make some again soon so I can share the recipes with you all. When I saw THIS RECIPE on Stumbleupon, I immediately bookmarked it to make it in my own kitchen.

cookie11Zoom Yummy has great recipes and knitting/crocheting patterns that I love – and I was so glad to find this wonderful recipe that is so simple and easy to make. I made a slight change to the recipe; I used salted butter instead of unsalted and omitted salt in the recipe. It works fine that way, too.


The finished cookie actually tastes like a cookie, and have a crunchy texture like a cookie (Not exactly like a cookie. Some people have told me that they find it more cakey than cookie-like – although mine always turned out more like a cookie than a cake). Make sure you don’t melt the butter. You’re only supposed to “soften” the butter. Mine always turns out a little bit crunchy and chewy as well, never moist like a cake. I served it with a little bit of ice cream and topped it with some chocolate syrup.


In a shallow, microwavable bowl, place 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar, 1 1/2 tablespoons brown sugar, and 2 tablespoons salted butter (softened at room temperature).


Fluff them together using fork, until fluffy and well mixed.


Beat one egg well and add 2 tablespoons beaten egg to the butter mixture.


Mix together using fork or whisk. Add 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract.


Add 5 tablespoons all purpose flour to the mixture. Add 1/4 teaspoon baking soda.


Mix well with spoon or whisk, until smooth.


Stir in 1/4 cup chocolate chips (semisweet is what I used) and roughly flatten the dough in the bowl.


Microwave the dough for 2 minutes on high. And ta-da! It’s all ready!! Top it with your favorite ice cream and drizzle with chocolate syrup, if desired.


This is a great recipe to keep for times you crave something sweet but not really willing to make a whole batch of cookies because you’re worried you’re going to eat the whole batch in one seating. This way, your craving will be satisfied but you don’t have to feel so guilty either.

    Hello :) I was just wondering if it’s okay if you don’t put a vanilla extract
    Thanks for posting, by the way!

      Hi Jess! Vanilla extract is used for flavoring not for texture. It adds that nice chocolate chip cookie flavor to it. Do you just not have it or not like the flavor? I can’t guarantee it will turn out fine without it, but if you do try, let me know how it is! Thanks for stopping by!

      Hey everyone , i used a little bit more egg and instead of extract (i couldnt find it ) i used 3 straws of vanilla and just chopper em up totally , and then put it in 3 cupcake containers and now i have 3 cupcakes , alsi instead of the chocolate i used a snickers bar wich i ripped in to pieces .. and this worked fine !

    Yea, i agree, 5 tablespoons of flour made mine into a cake also :-( good thing its cheap ingredients!!! To the trash it goes!!!

      Hi Chris, so I just tried it and it turned out well. I guess I don’t understand what you mean by a cake – was it moist like cake? Did you melt the butter or only soften? It’s supposed to be softened, not melted. Anyway, I followed this recipe exactly and turned out like a cookie (not exactly like a cookie – can’t really expect that from a microwave cookie) but it was still a little crunchy and chewy.

    Hey Sook!
    I tried this recipe and mine, like others, turned into a cake. . .more moist yet dry type of cake.
    Not sure what the prob is. . .but! With my edit it turned out. . .nice and cakey xD
    I substituted the choc chips for sunflower seeds and coco pops. . .WHAT?!
    I know. I’m a bit of a wild cook =D
    Other than the sunflower seeds turning hard and it being cakey and bit strange it tasted good =] Thanks for sharing.

      You probably added too much flour. Sorry it didn’t turn out for you.
