Tips for making your own microwave mug dessert

  • It doesn’t have to be made in a mug– I know some people might have copper mugs or something that can’t do in the microwave. Well, you can make your mug dessert in a little bowl or even a ramekin!
  • Under-bake your dessert– It is always to under bake rather than over bake. If yo under bake you can always pop it back into the oven for a few more seconds.
  • Don’t overfill your mug– The thing here is that mug cakes always rise when baking in the microwave. You want to leave about 1/2 of the mug empty to give it enough room to rise. For this cookie, you probably don’t have to worry too much because there isn’t that much cookie dough.
  • Adjust your baking time if you’re making more than one at once- If you are making 2 or more and baking them all at the same time, you will have to adjust your baking times.
  • Add a few more chocolate chips and some sea salt to the top once cooked– This is my favorite tip ever! The chocolate chips will melt beautifully to give you a puddle of melted chocolate and the sea salt flakes will elevate this cookie and give it some more depth of flavor.

Can I add mix-ins to my mug chocolate chip cookie?

Absolutely! Go crazy, the world is your oyster my friend. Here are a few things that I like to either ass to my chocolate chip cookie dough or use instead of the chocolate chips!

  • Chopped nuts- I love adding peanuts, walnuts, pecans, or even hazelnuts to my cookie dough before microwaving it! Such a treat.
  • Peanut butter chips– If you want something other than chocolate chips you can go for peanut butter chips or do a half and half mixture for an extra special mug cookie!
  • White chocolate chips– I love white chocolate so much and it works great for this recipe too!
  • Cranberries– Adding a little bit of dried cranberries to the cookie dough mixture will make your mug cookie extra festive.
  • Sprinkles- Sprinkles are always a good idea. Play around and see which one if your favorite.

What should I top my chocolate chip mug cookie with?

A few toppings that I adore are:

  • A dollop of peanut butter- The peanut butter will melt and you will be left with a salty and sweet treat. This is one of my favorite ways to have it.
  • Whipped cream– Can’t go wrong with whipped cream. You can even add a chocolate drizzle to that and call it a day!
  • A dollop of Nutella– If you are looking for something extra chocolatey and rich, a teaspoon or two of Nutella on top of your chocolate chip cookie will do the trick.
  • A scoop of your favorite ice cream– I love the mixture of cold and hot when it comes to dessert so I am a sucker for ice cream on my warm cookies. I like to go with vanilla but then again you can use whatever you have on hand or whatever you prefer.

If you are trying to go a little crazy mix and match all these topping options on your chocolate chip mug cake because let’s be honest, we only live once so might as well enjoy it!
