Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Mug (Kids in the Kitchen)


Sometimes I'm just a kid at heart.  If you put a chocolate chip cookie in front of me while I'm having a rough day, it could actually make me feel better.  I always have the fixings for chocolate chips cookies in my house, but baking an entire batch takes time and sometimes I need a chocolate chip cookie fast (especially on really rough days!).  That's why I love mug cakes and desserts.  If you have a craving for a little sweet treat, you can make a miniature dessert just for one or two people and not have to go to the expense or work of making an entire cake.  Even worse is you will end up eating up all that extra cake or dessert when all you wanted was a little treat one time.  So mug desserts totally rock in my world. 

My nephew made chocolate chips cookies in a mug at school and he knew he had to share it with my kids and the blog.  So today in Kids in the Kitchen I am sharing the recipe that he used to make these fabulous cookies in a mug. 

 You just need a handful of ingredients and the directions to make one cookie.  We made 4 mug cookies because each of the kids wanted to make their own.  It was so much fun to make (and so quick) that all the kids (even a big kid like me) loved it.


1 Tbs butter
1 Tbs granulated white sugar
1 Tbs firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
small pinch of salt
1 egg yolk (save the egg white for a different recipe)
Scant1/4 cup all purpose flour  (slightly less than 1/4 cup)
2 heaping Tbs of semi-sweet chocolate chips
1.  Start by melting your butter in the microwave.  Butter should be melted but not boiling.
2.  Add sugars, vanilla and salt.  Stir to combine. 
3.  Add flour and egg yolk, then stir again. 
4.  Finally add chocolate chips and cook in the microwave on high for 1 minute. If needed add 10-15 seconds additional time until your cookie is cooked through.
