Cookie-in-a-mug

It’s a cold November night and the winds are howling viciously around your shoebox of a bedroom. You’re missing home and you’d kill for some of Domino’s scrumptiously delicious warm cookies. But what’s that you cry? I’m a student, you say? It’s become your war cry whenever it’s suggested you spend anything over a fiver on a decent meal. What if I were to tell you that you could recreate that steamy chocolate dessert at home for what works out to be a fraction of the price? Here it comes, the solution to most of life’s problems; the Cookie-In-A-Mug.

For this you’re going to want to get yourself:
a tablespoon of margarine (not butter – trust me on this),
two tablespoons of granulated sugar,
three drops of vanilla essence (only got vanilla extract? Be grand sure.),
an egg,
four tablespoons of flour
,
some chocolate chips (or just cut up a chocolate bar. Smarties or M&Ms have been known to work well too, as have bits of Mars bars. Go wild, lads.)

Now, first things first – you’re going to want to stick that margarine in a mug and microwave it for about 30 seconds, until melted. Then add your sugar, vanilla, and egg yolk. Get rid of the rest of the egg; you don’t need it. Now whisk it all together until it’s a decent mixture. Then you need to add your flour and use some elbow grease to whisk it together again. Finally, add your filling of choice – chocolate chips, M&Ms, whatever – and microwave for 40-60 seconds. And then, go to heaven as you take your first bite!
