Chocolate – Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup

Looking for a way to make dessert that doesn’t require turning on your oven?  Look no further, because this is going to knock your socks off.  Or your flip flops, depending where you live.  In 40 seconds, you can have a warm chocolate cookie without heating up your whole kitchen!  Brilliant and delicious!

Recipe:  Chocolate – Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup
Makes one cookie. 

(adapted from My Happy Place)

1 Tbsp. butter, softened
1 Tbsp. white sugar
1 Tbsp. light brown sugar
1/8 tsp. pure vanilla extract
small pinch of salt
1 egg yolk
1 Tbsp. cocoa powder
3 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp. chocolate chips

Lightly spray the bottom of a mug with cooking spray.  Mix butter, sugars, vanilla, and egg yolk right in the mug.  (I used butter straight from the fridge, so I dropped the pat into the mug and microwaved it for about 12 seconds to soften it, but not melt it, before adding the sugars, vanilla, and egg yolk.)  Stir until combined.  Add salt, cocoa powder, and flour, and stir.  Stir in chocolate chips.  Microwave for 40-60 seconds, depending on how powerful your microwave is — my cookies were done in 40 seconds.
Carefully remove cup from microwave – cookie will be hot.  Top with ice cream.
