So it seems like you all are into microwaveable treats. I get it. I’m into them, too. They’re the perfect ending to an evening meal – when you just need a little something. . . sweet.
You know what I’m talking about. It’s that nagging urge that just won’t go away until you make it happy. And it really doesn’t take much. But it takes SOMETHING, and it has to be fast!
There’s no reason to bake a full pan of brownies or run out to the bakery when you’re craving a little sweetness. This M&M Microwave Cookie is ready in minutes – and, just like my mug cakes, it’s super duper delicious.
Once you get the ingredients mixed up together, it should look like cookie dough. I used a 24 ounce round microwaveable dish to put my cookie dough in, but you could also just use a microwaveable plate if you like.
After 90 seconds in the microwave, your cookie is ready. You can let it cool for a little bit and then carefully lift it out of the bowl. . .
or leave it in the bowl, top it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and just dig right in. I prefer the latter.
However, just to make sure I provided you with a good shot of the cookie, I lifted mine out of the bowl and put it on a new plate before I plopped the scoop of ice cream on.
Here’s a tip – eat the cookie while it’s still warm. Why? Because it just tastes better that way.
Microwaveable treats are created to be eaten immediately. I wouldn’t recommend using this recipe for your church’s bake sale. That would just be silly. By the time you made two dozen of these you would need a new door on your microwave from opening and closing it so much. 🙂
Enjoy this cookie on your own or with your BFF. In our house, we tend to make one for each family member because no one wants to share. I get it. And so will you once you make one of these babies.
Now excuse me while I finish this up. Must. Eat. While. Still. Warm.
