Microwave Chocolate Chip Cookie

I had so much fun developing this recipe. Talk about kinda dangerous though. This baby is baked in 60 seconds, no lie!! The cookie dough recipe is prepared right in your ramekin, so we are also talking about minimal dishes. Win win, right? You know those fabulous pizzookie’s you order at certain restaurants? Yah, this is just like that but done in literally no time. This makes one large serving so double or triple the recipe as needed. This is a great one to share with your loved ones 🙂  ……or just devour yourself.

Start by creaming your butter and sugars right in your ramekin.

How To Make Microwave Chocolate Chip Cookies

  1. Place butter and sugars into a 2-cup ramekin, beat with spoon until well combined. Add beaten egg and vanilla, mixing to combine. Add flour, baking soda and salt. Stir a couple times, then add chocolate chips, stirring to combine. Microwave for 60 seconds then remove. Run a plastic knife around edges, will be slightly gooey, no worries. Cookie will continue to set up in hot ramekin. Top with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream and drizzle with my homemade magic shell. Serve immediately.

  2. I do agree with all the ideas you’ve presented in your post. They are very convincing and will certainly work. Still, the posts are very short for newbies. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

  4. Ok, so I had to make this tonight, of course. I only have 1 cup ramekins, so I ended up making it in a mixing box. Never crossed my mind to split it between two. *blush* But it was fantastic. Will definitely be making it again. The right way, next time.

  5. I stumbled upon your page and this recipe through the Stumble Upon app on my phone. I tried the recipe tonight and it turned out great. The only suggestion I have for those that try it is take note of the wattage on your microwave. I have a lower wattage microwave so it took me about two minutes to cook the cookie completely.

  6. Alicia

    I just made this with gluten free flour and it was awesome! It did take a little longer than 60 secs though- more like a few minutes. But I don’t like my cookies gooey and I was more than happy to wait a bit longer for them to harden up more cookie-like! Soooo good!

  7. I love microwave baking. I often find the results are not quite as good as using the oven but the convenience and speed makes it all worthwhile.

  8. Cashone

    Hello, Thanks to share this delicious recipe. In few easy steps i can get this delicious cookie in a very less time. Thanks a lot to share this.

  9. Reckless

    After trying a few other microwave cookie recipes… I have found the best one! Best executed with your own chickens’ fresh eggs 😉 (It was a newer chicken’s egg so I just used one full egg! Perfect size!)

    Mine didn’t get the exact texture of a cookie but it’s so delicious it doesn’t matter! The other ones I tried were really blah and much too cake-like in comparison to this heaven! (Which was only slightly cake-like. The microwave just seems to do that.)

    So yeah, this recipe is amazing and delicious! Here I am, eating it as I type, trying to ignore the fact I didn’t wait for it to cool so my mouth is burning! I only have one cup ramekins so I just used a small bowl. I knew it was going to be good when I snuck a taste of the dough…. mmm.

    Thanks so much for sharing! I much appreciate it and shall be sharing it with friends with a link back to here so they all can enjoy it too!

    Well mine did NOT come out looking the same as yours did. I can tell you the only things I did different was add dark brown sugar, which you wouldn’t think would have changed things up to not come out at all. The egg was a bit hard to measure, and could’ve been the culprit, but alas I am discouraged with this. I wasn’t going to waste all of the hard work I did measuring, so I started up the oven. I hope to actually get to eat a cookie tonight.

  11. Perfect for taking to work – I made a batch of the batter yesterday and cooked one in the microwave in the office – everyone was jealous! Thanks

  12. helene

    well, we decided to try it and the result was wayyyy off. it was really really salty, we couldnt even finish eating it. sorry about that but i needed to comment.

  13. Dip remaining four tortillas into sauce and set up
    above 2nd layer. Sitting there on your counter, it barely appears
    to be capable of these miracles, but the first of
    all timers and the seasoned cooks alike will get pleasure from adding that traditional taste to their
    most desired dishes. Stir in onions, celery,
    chopped yellow bell pepper and cook until eventually tender.

  14. I just made this and it tasted salty. I wanted to double check that the salt should be 1/4tsp or should it be 1/8 tsp? I split the batter into smaller ramekins and other than the salty taste they were delicious!

    1. Hi Jody, I tend to be a bit heavier on the salt for my cookies only because of personal preference. Feel free to reduce it next time 🙂

  15. Dave

    Put off by the filthy spoons in the last but one shot…why is it a ‘thing’ these days to present food shots with old but corroded, damaged or dirty crockery or cutlery? Vile, and the food deserves better

  16. Wow, wonderful blog format! How lengthy have you
    been blogging for? you made running a blog look easy. The
    overall glance of your web site is wonderful, let alone the content material!

    Sooo…I made this with my daughter but when we cooked them in our high-power microwave for 60 seconds, they were still goo. 🙁 I put them in for 30 more seconds, then 30 more seconds, until they resembled a cookie. However, it didn’t look anything like yours! What did we do wrong? We followed the recipe exactly. I really want this to work. Please help! 🙂

  18. Anisa

    I’ve made this twice and it’s come out more like quite a light sponge, it’s actually a lot nicer a sponge than normal microwaveable recipes! But yes, I was wondering what I’m doing to make it so un-cookie-like…

  19. Madeleine

    Thank you sooooo much! My roommates and I are studying abroad in Gambia, West Africa, without an oven and this is so wonderful!

  20. CJ

    Okay, okay, you are my frikkin HERO. OH MY GOD YES. I’ve been having cravings for AGES but I’m too busy and this is just FANTASTIC oh my god THANK YOU.

  21. Kate

    Good recipe but it’s much too salty. Next time I make it, I’ll be decreasing the salt to 1/8 teaspoon. 1/4 is a LOT of salt.

  22. Emily

    I was really excited to try these but was sorely disappointed. They turned out very salty. And not very much like a cookie. More like cookie-cake. Not sure if I’ll try them again, but if I do, I’ll only add a dash of salt. So disappointed . . .

  23. Nadia

    WOW!!! So worth it!! Made it for a special night and turned out great!! my honey couldn’t believe that when i put the egg in, it did not need to be “baked”…. so cute….


  24. LalaLooney

    Hi. Well, seeing as pretty much everyone else who’s commented on this is saying how much they love/hate the idea, I figured I might comment on how it actually turns out. Mine didn’t work out that great, unfortunately =( The top was all bubbly and eggy, and the bottom was pretty much pure chocolate. And it took well over 60 seconds – mine took about 1:40, because after a minute it was just pure liquid – we probably have very different microwaves. It was still fairly yummy, but it was disappointing enough that I don’t think I have to worry about getting too big for my jeans because of it.

  25. Helen

    Just made this for my better half and his 15 y/o. It went down quicker than I made it, extremely tasty, shame there’s no more chocolate chips in house!

  26. Just made this!!! Amazing!!! 🙂 Loved it.
    It did take a little bit longer to cook (but I have a VERY old microwave and I substituted Milled Flax Seed and water for the egg), but it was delicious and super quick for a homemade dessert. My kids LOVED it!
    Thank you so much!

  27. Paloma

    Tastes great! I didn’t have butter so i had to use shortening instead, turned out like a fluffy cake but its still delicous and moist! 🙂 thank you for the recipe!

  28. Shelly B.

    I have to tell you…I made this to tonight, with a couple of unintentional adjustments. First, I used a coffee mug…Second, we used the last if our eggs at dinner so I substituted 2 tbsp if applesauce (I was expecting a total failure) and then after 60 seconds it looked undercooked so I hit it for 45 more seconds. Can I say it was delicious!!! I have NEVER tried a substitution like applesauce before but it was quite good!

    I’ve made your mini Oreo stuffed chocolate chips cookie before also and they were a huge hit with the Fam.

    I think I love you!! Hahaha…I stalk your blog and have ore-ordere your book off amazon. Your recipes are amazing and I can’t wait to try any number of the ones I have printed out and waiting to find their way into my tummy 🙂

    Thanks again!

  29. Wow – pure genius. I didn’t even know that making something that looks so utterly delicious was even possible in such a short period of time! I’ll definitely try this one next.

  30. Liz Cook

    I made this and it was delicious but when I put it in the microwave, it bubbled up and over the ramakin. Did I do something wrong? It was still yummy but messy. Your picture looks so neat and clean. My ramakin was not small, I don’t think. It’s about 3 1/2 inches wide and about 2 1/2 inches tall.

  31. Elo

    I tried this tonight. I made two since i wasn’t too sure about how much egg, and figured i’d use a full egg between two recipes. I found that at 60 seconds, my first was a bit wet around the edges. Another 10 seconds fixed that perfectly. It’s spongier than a baked cookie, but really, really good. I’ll definitely be doing this more in the future – and I love how easy the recipe is to make and remember. Thanks (:

  32. Happy

    Just made this! It was amazing!!! I couldnt find any measuring utensils so I improvised with a dessert spoon and added a little extra flour when it seemed a little gooey. It came out prefectly cooked and extremely delicious. I’ve been looking for a reasonable and easy to make microwave cake for too long. Any other ones I’ve tried up to this point have been disappointingly dry or solid, this most certainly was not. Thank you so much for the recipe

    1. sara

      Really?! I just made it and it came out perfectly! Was your microwave at power 100? Just curious 🙂

  33. sara

    This is such a great recipe! This will be tonight’s recipe! One thing though– will I have to also decrease the time to 30 seconds if I use the 1 cup ramekins/divide the recipe?

  34. Oh this isn’t good.
    Hi, my name is Stressed About Moving, and I have a huge chocolate/sweet problem. We all know stressed is desserts, so I am going to go make one of these while the little ones are sleeping and no one can see me eating it, ’cause then the calories don’t count right??


  35. Meghan

    I wanted to comment immediately about how delicious and amazing this looked, but I thought I’d make it first and THEN comment. Well… it’s incredible! I’m six months pregnant so I thought I could handle it on my own, but it’s definitely a treat for two. And the ice cream is the perfect touch because that cookie is screaming hot when it comes out. I used mint chocolate chip (my favorite). Anyway, everyone, it’s as amazingly tasty as it looks!

  36. Molly

    Is 2 TB beaten egg about 1 egg, or more than that? Also, if we use salted butter should we just omit the kosher salt?


  37. Cheyenne Renard

    When are you going to release the Magic Shell Choc recipe . I would love to have it again Thank you so much. Congrats on both the new Son and the new Book Double Fun love to you and yours God Bless you all Cheyenne I sure miss the ocean when its over 113 thats too hot

  38. Debbie S

    I couldn’t wait to make this last night and it didn’t disappoint!! The cookie is soooo good and sooo rich! I made one and sad to say I ate the whole thing before my hubby got home from work. I then had to make another one for him and he gobbled it down! Next time I’ll wait for him to get home and we’ll share one! Otherwise my waistband will explode!!

  39. Almost burst into song when I found this post…I quit baking chocolate chip cookies because I will eat the whole batch. And now, oh glory, I can make ONE! You know what I’m having for a bed time snack tonight…:)

  40. Ok, so I had to make this tonight, of course. I only have 1 cup ramekins, so I ended up making it in a mixing box. Never crossed my mind to split it between two. *blush* But it was fantastic. Will definitely be making it again. The right way, next time.

  41. I thank you sincerely Jenny, but my thighs do not! Yikes, this recipe is going to come in a little too handy. I’m intrigued by it too – I’m not a big fan of microwave cake recipes (the texture always seems off to me – a bit doughy), but I bet it works great as a cookie!

  42. Laurie

    Oy… I’m just drooling over these already. As a teacher of special needs students, I like to do weekly cooking activities with the kids that help them learn new words, taste new things, and to engage in age-appropriate activities, this is perfect for the classroom. I have a microwave and I can just get a bunch of ramekins at Wal-mart or Big Lots for this! Each kid can have his or her own cookie now! Solves my oven problem too! So now I know what we are making Thursday! =) However, this is still too dangerous for me to keep at home now! =) I can just see my husband bugging me late at night to make him a cookie since it will only “take a minute!” And my teenagers can make their own as well without whining there’s nothing to eat. My sweet tooth thanks you but my waistline hates you! Can’t wait to see the magic shell recipe as I can do that with my students so they can drizzle it over their ice cream made in a ziploc bag!

    1. Hi Laurie, I am the mom of a special needs child and I thank you for your commitment in working with such special children. I am probably going to try this, only without the sugar and see if they still come out ok. To be honest, I have never heard of a ramekin, but I will be looking for them on my next trip to Walmart so I can try this with him; I do a lot of baking and cooking with my son and he loves it.

  43. Marsha

    What is the size of the ramekin? It says 2 cups and I have trouble finding such a thing on line. I don’t own ramekins but I think I need to now. This would be fun to make with the kids. any suggestions for a ramekin substitute? Thanks.

    1. Hi Marsha, I know you can find them at kitchen stores like Sur La Table or Williams Sonoma. You can even use the smaller, easier to find 1 cup ramekins and just divide the batter between two of them for this recipe. Hope this helps 🙂

  44. Kristen M.

    What a perfect summer treat! My sons will love having their own personal cookie dough sundae. I look forward to your magic shell recipe.

  45. Amanda


    Also, this cookie concoction is perfect for making at work! Win over your cubicle-mates!

  46. Would you believe that I’ve been living without a microwave for about 3 months now and haven’t missed it at all until now? Ugh.

  47. Oh no, now I kinda wish I hadn’t seen this…. I thought the 1 serving deep dish cookies i made in the oven were easy, but after seeing this, I’m afraid I may be tempted to eat chocolate chip cookies way, way, way to much!;)

  48. Thank you Jenny! One of life’s riddles is finally solved.

    The answer is: “60 Second Chocolate Chip Cookie a la Mode.”
    The question is: “Who is the Love Child of Ms. Mug Cake and Mr. Ice Cream Sandwich?”

    That is one beautiful little Love Child 🙂

  49. Fiona

    I’m not sure whether to celebrate this recipe, or try to pretend I never saw it and spare my waist line!

  50. Caley

    Wow, what a great idea! I’m one of those people who likes cookie dough/underbaked cookies much better than crisp ones, so this is pretty much perfect… 🙂

  51. This looks awesome, Jenny! And so fast and easy and just….well, a little too easy 🙂 You and Christi both have nearly the same posts/recipes that went live within an hour or so of each other. I need cookies, now!

  52. Kathy

    It’s very cruel of you to offer up this recipe to everyone. It’s 2 AM where I am and I’m seriously considering making one right now. Except that I don’t have any ice cream, so I guess I’ll have to wait at least until the grocery store opens. Sounds like a plan.

    1. Liz

      Where I am in Australia we have two different supermarkets, one which is open until midnight and another one which opens at midnight! So either way I’m cover, unfortunately I’m at work… but when I get home! I will be making these!!
