Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup
- 1 Tbsp butter, melted
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 Tbsp. dark brown sugar
- 3 drops of vanilla extract
- pinch of salt
- 1 egg yolk
- slightly less than 1/2 cup flour
- 2 Tbsp. semi-sweet chocolate chips
Combine butter, sugars, vanilla and salt in microwavable mug or cup. Add egg yolk and stir until combined. Mix in flour, stirring until dough forms. Gently fold in chocolate chips and then sprinkle some on top. Microwave for 40-55 seconds, until almost set. It will continue cooking once it is out of the microwave, so no need to over do it.
