Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Mug Cookie

Chocolate Chip Cookie in a mug

Ever had that midnight chocolate craving. When your in desperate search for anything chocolate and you come up empty. This is where my 5 minute chocolate sauce originated from. We’ve all been there and I’ve got the fix for you.

I gladly present to you my Peanut Butter and Chocolate Chip Cookie in a mug. You will be eating this cookie in less than 5 minutes time. So get up off the coach and make this for dessert now!

The ingredients are similar to a peanut butter chocolate chip cookie except I shrunk it down in size and cooked it in the microwave instead of the oven. No preheating or greasing here! I also omitted the baking powder and baking soda due to the fact we are cooking it in the microwave and for only a short period of time.

These peanut butter and chocolate chip cookies in a cup are so simple to make and will satisfy any sweet tooth. This is the perfect dessert for one.

Let’s get started….

Melt 1 tablespoons butter in a microwave safe coffee mug.

    This recipe is amazing! I’ve been looking for mug recipes for so long and this is the only one I’ve found that isn’t so dry and flavourless. I love this recipe and it is so worth making.
