Attention cookie addicts and chocolate fiends!!!

This takes the brownie in a mug to the next level...

I came across this recipe on one of my favourite blog sites No.2 pencil and I am now addicted. I thought it would only be fair to share it with you!

Choc chip cookie in a cup...

Doesn't it look delicious? 

Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup
created by Melissa at No. 2 Pencil

1 Tablespoon Butter
1 Tablespoon Granulated White Sugar
1 Tablespoon of firmly packed Dark Brown Sugar
3 Drops of Vanilla Extract
Small Pinch of Salt
1 Egg Yolk (discard the egg white)
Scant 1/4 of All Purpose Flour
2 Tablespoons of Semi Sweet 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.

Don't forget to add a spoonful of vanilla ice cream before serving!

  1. "Scant 1/4 of All Purpose Flour" - I assume that's 1/4 cup?

    1. Yes it just means a 'level' 1/4 cup as oppose to a heaped 1/4 cup. Enjoy!!

  3. doesn't need any baking powder or baking soda?

    1. Nope :) Its a perfect fool proof recipe. Baking powder is really only used in cakes when you need them to rise.
