Single Serving Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie

by Amy on 21 September 2014

Single Serving Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie Today, I’m participating in a fun blogger event — the Secret Recipe Club. How does it work? Every blogger is secretly assigned another blog + chooses a recipe from that blog to make. On reveal day (today!), all of our posts go up at the same time, + everyone gets to see who was assigned to their blog, which recipe they chose, + how it turned out. Fun, huh?

I was assigned the wonderful blog The Spiffy Cookie, which was a fun treat, as I know Erin well, + we’ve even hung out in person! From all her fantastic recipes, I choose to try a sweet treat: this Single Serving Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie. I must admit, I was skeptical as to whether it would even turn out (I had never made a single-serving mug cake or cookie before), but it was too intriguing not to try. Y’all, consider me a convert! This was SO insanely delicious + incredibly easy to make. The result is a homemade cookie, in deep-dish form: Golden brown + slightly crisp on the outside, and ooey-gooey, warm + chocolatey on the inside. SOOO good, especially topped with a little ice cream. =) I timed it + it took me less than 4 minutes to gather/measure/mix the ingredients, then 15 minutes to bake it. That means that in less than 20 minutes, you have a decadent, scrumptious, from-scratch dessert. Delicious AND a little bit dangerous, I tell you!

Thank you to Erin for introducing me to this AMAZING treat + to the Secret Recipe Club for connecting me, yet again, with fantastic bloggers + amazing recipes! For all my previous Secret Recipe Club recipes, click here – there are TONS of awesome ones!

Single Serving Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie

Single Serving Deep-Dish Chocolate Chip Cookie

serves 1-2, adapted from The Spiffy Cookie


2 Tbsp unsalted butter
1 Tbsp brown sugar, packed
1 Tbsp white granulated sugar
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
1/4 tsp of baking soda
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 Tbsp mini chocolate chips
ice cream, for topping (optional)


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Have one 6-ounce ceramic ramekin ready.

In a medium microwavable bowl, melt the butter (this took me about 30 seconds). Vigorously whisk in brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract for at least 1 minute. (Note: make sure you do this step! Otherwise you can wind up with grainy sugars in your cookie). Whisk in the yolk until blended. Mix in the salt, baking soda, and flour until well-combined. Using a spatula, fold in the chocolate chips. Mix until just combined, then transfer the batter into the ramekin.

Bake for 15 minutes or until the top is firm + golden (the inside will still be slightly gooey). Let cool for a few minutes, then serve, topped with ice cream! And remember, the ramekin will be hot from the oven, so be careful with your fingers!

Yum!! Loving the looks of this recipe!

2 Caitlin September 22, 2014 at 5:40 am

This is what I need. I can’t make a whole batch of cookies or else I eat them all! But an open gooey single serving?! I can handle that! Yum, can’t wait to try this.

3 Rebekah @ Making Miracles September 22, 2014 at 7:36 am

Love those!! I first made something similar YEARS ago and my husband and son devoured them. Haven’t made them in too long. Such a great pick this month!!

4 Wendy, A Day in the Life on the Farm September 22, 2014 at 7:47 am

The ultimate comfort food for a crisp fall night.

5 Erin @ The Spiffy Cookie September 22, 2014 at 7:55 am

Yayy!! I’m so excited that you had me this month and that I converted you with this recipe. I am hooked on finding good single serving recipes now and can’t wait to see what you come up with.

Single serving sounds great to me… I find these recipes pretty cute, and the type of recipe that kids would love to try

7 danielle September 22, 2014 at 8:54 am

Single serving and easy to make – looks great but sounds dangerous :)

8 amy September 22, 2014 at 8:54 am

Sally, these types of recipes are definitely kid-friendly! Although, I confess that I waited to make this until my little one was asleep for the night, so I didn’t have to share! I’m terrible, I know. 😉

9 amy September 22, 2014 at 8:58 am

SOOO dangerous!

10 Dorothy at Shockingly Delicious September 22, 2014 at 9:46 am

That looks downright dangerous! Great SRC choice!

11 Lauren Everson September 22, 2014 at 10:25 am

I like paper thin cookies but even I can’t deny this cookie looks mouthwateringly delicious.

12 Leah | So, How's It Taste? September 22, 2014 at 11:50 am

Ooo, this recipe is going to be dangerous in my house! I love single serving desserts so I can cure my sweet craving, but not make a ton of leftover dessert. And hello Erin! She has a great blog, too! So funny you got hers this time!

13 Beth September 22, 2014 at 11:54 am

Yup, that definitely sounds dangerous. But so good!

14 amy September 22, 2014 at 1:32 pm

It is super dangerous, Beth and Leah! I made it for dessert one night and it was so good that I made it again for an afternoon snack less than a day later. =D Then, I realized I should probably space it out a little bit more, ha!

15 Tara September 22, 2014 at 2:49 pm

Oh wow, this is quite the dangerous recipe. I have all the ingredients. This may have to be a late night snack tonight.

16 Emily Ma September 22, 2014 at 2:50 pm

That looks SO GOOD.
Thank you for dropping by my blog by the way!

17 Jess @ Flying on Jess Fuel September 22, 2014 at 4:06 pm

Oh my gosh, how delicious. It’s dangerous knowing I can make this for one…. every single night! 😉

18 Lynn @ Turnips 2 Tangerines September 22, 2014 at 4:36 pm

Perfect, delicious and very dangerous:) Lynn

19 Annie @Maebells September 22, 2014 at 7:04 pm

21 Anna (Hidden Ponies) September 22, 2014 at 11:48 pm

22 Emily @ Life on Food September 23, 2014 at 6:05 am

Oh I love Erin’s blog and her single serving recipes. Desserts for me every night! This looks amazing, ice cream and all. Happy Reveal Day!!

23 Jessica @ A Kitchen Addiction September 23, 2014 at 9:04 am

This is the kind of recipe that is both good and bad! Knowing that I could be enjoying a fresh chocolate chip cookie in 20 minutes could be dangerous for me!

24 Karen September 23, 2014 at 1:06 pm

I LOVE Erin’s blog and these little baked cookie style puddings look a treat! Great SRC Amy – Karen

25 April September 23, 2014 at 8:06 pm

27 Kelly September 23, 2014 at 11:21 pm

This looks delicious ! Love how quick and easy it is to get my cookie fix but so dangerous at the same time :) Yum!

28 Karen @ Karen's Kitchen Stories September 24, 2014 at 1:41 am

Oh… em.. gee… all I can say as I pin this post.

31 sarah k @ the pajama chef September 24, 2014 at 4:51 pm

ugh i have a love/hate relationship with mug cakes and cookies. they are so tasty but so addictive, and sometimes you can get into a bad habit of making them a little too often. :) looks fabulous- especially w/ ice cream!

32 Whitney @ The Newlywed Chefs September 24, 2014 at 9:35 pm

This is such a dangerous recipe that will tempt me when the hubs is out of town!! But really… it looks fabulous!!

33 Kumar's Kitchen September 25, 2014 at 2:00 am

34 Choc Chip Uru September 25, 2014 at 5:56 pm

35 Dedy@Dentist Chef September 27, 2014 at 3:04 am

Never eevn thought a singe serving cookies like you before,

36 susan // the wimpy vegetarian September 28, 2014 at 5:34 pm

When I was assigned Erin’s wonderful blog, I really wanted to make this!!! It looks so killer to die for. I’ve really got to make it now. Great SRC pick this month!

37 easyfoodsmith September 29, 2014 at 12:20 pm

For me,this is a a new way of baking a cookie. It looks cool and one that I would love to indulge in 😀

38 Lila May 27, 2015 at 9:53 pm

This was just the recipe I was looking for! Just one question, if I use a 7 oz ramekin, how long should I bake it for? Do you think it would take longer because the cup is bigger or should I just leave it the same? Thanks!

39 Amy May 28, 2015 at 8:08 am

Hi Lila! If you use a 7 oz ramekin but keep all the ingredient amounts the same, I’d bake it for the same time. I’d check it after 13 minutes or so, just to make sure it isn’t browning too quickly, but I bet it’ll still take just about 15 minutes. Enjoy!
