A mug cake is a wonderful way to treat yourself to a decadent dessert. Have you had a chance to try my Oreo mug cake yet? You won’t want to miss it.

There are days that you just deserve a cookie. And, if you want to be able to enjoy your favorite treat without a lot of work, making a mug cake is the answer.

If you haven’t yet tried making a mug cake in the microwave, you really need to. There is no easier way to have a warm, gooey chocolate chip cookie in less than a minute.

One of the hardest parts of making homemade cookies is resisting the urge to eat a dozen of them in one sitting. That’s not a problem when you make this Chocolate Chip Cookie Mug Cake.

I decided to test the Oreo Mug Cake recipe with Chips Ahoy and with a few adjustments – it works! Just 5-ingredients and a few minutes stand between you and this perfectly cakey chocolate chip cookie dessert!

Mug Cake Ingredients

What’s the best cookie for mug cakes?

I used classic Chips Ahoy Chocolate Chip Cookies when I made this easy mug cake. Don’t get the chewy kind. It won’t turn out right if you do.

Mug Cake mixture
  • Make sure to use classic chips ahoy (or similar) and not chewy.
  • This was inspired by the Oreo Mug Cake but I found that the chocolate chip cookies really lacked in sweetness and were kind of bland. The addition of sugar made all the difference and we really liked them with the chocolate chips since the chocolate chips in the cookies get sort of ground up.
  • Top with whipped cream, ice cream, cookie crumbs, powdered sugar, and more.
  • 4 Chips Ahoy cookies are 1.6 ounces, this should help should you use a different brand.
  • The prep time is mostly just processing the cookies. If you have quick access to a food processor this really is a 5-minute dessert.

Different flavors of mug cakes

Of course, I love this chocolate chip cookie mug cake. But, there are a lot of different types of mug cakes you can make that are a bit different.

Why new try a few of these.

  • Butterscotch
  • Peanut Butter
  • Mint Chocolate Chip

As long as you stick with the classic variety of cookies, you should have good results.

Can I use different flavored chocolate chips?

Yes, in addition to using a different type of cookie, you can use different chocolate chips in your Chocolate Chip cookie mug cake.

Why not try mint chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, or peanut butter chips? Mix and match the cookie flavors and the chip flavors for a new dessert every night.

  • Blend the chocolate chip cookies in a food processor until they are crumbs.
  • Then, combine the ingredients in your microwave-safe mug.
  • Cook in the microwave for one minute.
  • Let it cool and enjoy.

How long can I store a mug cake?

These desserts are really best enjoyed straight from the microwave while they are still warm and gooey. If you don’t have time to eat it right away, try making it later.

To save time, you can process the cookies in your food processor ahead of time. Then, store them in an airtight container until you want to make your mug cake.
