Dessert for one: Single-serve jumbo chocolate chip cookie

It’s 8:30 p.m., dinner is finished, dishes are cleaned up, you’re finally about to relax on the couch with whatever Netflix series you’re currently obsessing on, and boom — the sweet tooth craving hits. I mean, that does happen to you, right? This can’t just be me.

Of course, there are plenty of those mug cake recipes out there — cakes cooked in a microwave in just a few minutes. They’re all well and great (and I definitely partake in my fair share of them), but sometimes you just want a chocolate chip cookie, you know? Not 12, just one big chocolate chip cookie to get you through the night, so the remaining 11 aren’t sitting there, tempting you for the next three days every time you walk into the kitchen. This recipe makes just that. And if you’re feeling really generous, don’t worry — it’s big enough to share too.
