Hot Chocolate Mug Cookies for Two

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

When it gets cold in the winter time, I love a big mug of Hot Chocolate. And since it’s the holidays, I’m all about cookies. This year instead of making one or the other, you can make Hot Chocolate Mug Cookies and even share them with a friend or loved one. This treat is designed for sharing, and sure to please, so get micro-baking!

My Hot Chocolate Mug Cookies are really the best of both of these treats. Think chocolate cookie meets melted foamy marshmallows. Leave the store bought cookies where they are, and surprise that special person in your life with this perfect treat. Combine a few ingredients you most likely already have, to create the chocolate cookie part of this mug cookie. Then, just as with hot chocolate, top this mug cookie with mini marshmallows and microwave for just one minute.  The marshmallows melt in the microwave creating that perfect melted marshmallowy texture we all know and love for a perfect Hot Chocolate treat.

You will not believe how good these Hot Chocolate Mug Cookies are and the best part is that this recipe is designed for sharing. This is the perfect little dessert to end any holiday celebration so I can’t wait for you to give it a try!

    Can I make these ahead

    • Gemma Stafford on December 15, 2017 at 4:34 am

      Hi Ian,
      This recipe is a good one to make ahead, because it does not contain any baking powder/raising agent. Brownie type recipes work well too. When there is a raising agent it can be spent before you get a chance to bake, so making ahead is not so good, but you are good to go for this recipe,
      Gemma 🙂

    Looks yummy 👌
    Can I bake it in a toaster oven?
    If yes.. what is the time needed?
    Thank you Gemma

      Hi there,
      Yes, this recipe wil lwork well in a toaster oven. Use a muffin pan, not a mug, and bake at 180C/350F for about 15 mins.
      Gemma 🙂
