Alright sweet friends, today I have something so wonderful and amazing that I want to shout it from my kitchen counter tops.  You know my love of cookies and I know that I am not the only one.  Soft, warm and wonderful…cookies just might be the perfect food.  I crave them, you crave them…let’s face it…at some point we all crave them.  The problem is that we can’t always just make an entire batch of cookies.  Thankfully, today I am giving you my secret recipe for what I like to call my Chocolate Chip Craving Cookie.

Do you love cookies too?  Try some of my favorites…Brookies, Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookie and Soft Confetti Sprinkle Cookies.

It literally comes together in one small bowl and bakes in the microwave in less than a minute.  Who knew that you could have a cookie in your sugar loving hands that quickly?  I used a ramekin bowl but a mug or small bowl of any kind will work perfectly.

Microwave Craving Cookie

Begin by measuring out your butter into the dish and microwave until melted.  It doesn’t take much time and we don’t want get it too warm, so start with just 15 seconds and add more time if needed.

To the melted butter, add both sugars, vanilla extract and salt.

Stir until all of the ingredients are completely incorporated.

The next step is to add the egg yolk to the mixture and stir it in.

Finally, stir in the flour and be sure that all of it incorporates into the dough.

Add chocolate and stir one more time.  Note:  I chopped up semi-sweet baking chips but mini chips would work even better.  Put the bowl into the microwave and bake.  All ovens are a little different but it will take between 45 & 60 seconds.  My cookie only took 45 seconds.

Let the cookie sit for a minute or two and then enjoy.  I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about baking it in the microwave because I am all about the texture.  Great news, it works perfectly.

To get a little more chocolate flavor I added a few extra chips onto the top of the cookie.  I was a trooper and shared it with the girls.  Everyone was happy and cravings were no longer a problem.  I can’t wait for you to satisfy your chocolate chip cookie craving and sweet tooth!
