Microwave Chocolate Chip Cookie

Sharing a simple and delicious microwave chocolate chip cookie recipe today! Takes just 60 seconds to make and minutes to prepare!

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.

    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!

    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!

    1. Jenny

      Who would have thought!! Thanks for sharing your results and thanks for ordering my book!! xoxo

  3. Krystal L

    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.

  4. Katie Dale

    I just made this and it was delicious but it took a lot more than 60 seconds! More like 3 minutes, but I know microwaves vary.

  5. Nancy @ gottagetbaked

    This sounds like heaven in a ramekin! I love that you make the cookie right in the ramekin for a quick, easy and portion-controlled treat. Brilliant!

  6. 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.

    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 (:

  8. 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 🙂

  9. 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?

  10. Forgetful Mom

    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??


  11. 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!

  12. 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?


  13. 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

  14. 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!!

  15. Natalie @ Cooking for My Kids

    You are absolutely brilliant. What a great way to enjoy dessert just once without be tempted by all of the leftovers. I love it! I cannot wait to try this.

  16. Heidi @ Bits of Sunshine

    WhATT?!?!? a cookies in 60 sec! Oh yeah! This is tooooo awesome! This is the very best! Thanks so much for sharing!

  17. Rachael A.

    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…:)

  18. Heather at Kitchen Concoctions

    Some may say this is dangerous but I think it is perfect for when I crave a cookie and *shouldn’t* make a whole batch!

  19. Kathleen Richardson

    You really made this, Jenny?! It really bakes in 60 seconds in the nuke machine?! Oh, boy!

    Keep writing…

  20. The Shaky Baker

    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.

  21. Amanda @ Once Upon a Recipe

    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!

  22. 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!


      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.

  23. Becca from It's Yummilicious

    GAH!! I just broke the elastic on my stretchy pants looking at these sinful delights!
