It was late at night. I had a hankering for something chocolatey and gooey.
Solution: cookie in a cup.
To be more specific: chocolate chip cookie in a cup à la mode.
It only takes a few minutes to mix up, and you probably have all the ingredients in your kitchen already.
Which is pretty important if you need a cookie NOW and don’t want to run to the store after dark.
Anyway, the only ingredient not pictured above is the vanilla extract. And you could use any type of chocolate chip, although you’ll notice that I used miniature chocolate chips. I like how they spread throughout the dough and add lots of little chunks of chocolate to every bite.
The recipe I used was Chocolate Chip Cookie in a Cup by Number 2 Pencil. The changes I made were the mini chocolate chips and using more than a few drops of vanilla. I love vanilla. I used at least a teaspoon. A generous teaspoon. And I made it in a large “soup” mug instead of a coffee mug.
Then, when the cookie was done, I topped it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, some chocolate syrup, and a handful of miniature chocolate chips.
Oh, and here’s a photo of the cookie before I added the ice cream:
Now: go forth and bake!
