This is heaven in a cup, for two.
Picture a chocolate chip cookie straight from the oven, except it’s cooked in a bowl and it’s got a gooey center and that’s what you have here. If you like chocolate chip cookies or chocolate or ice cream with cookies then you’ll love these.
I made these cookie bowls for two reasons. One, there aren’t many ingredients, and the amount you need of each isn’t a lot. Two, my husband loves chocolate chip cookies (he says they are his favorite cookie) so I thought he’d love this variation. Okay maybe there is a third reason… they looked freaking amazing so I wanted them too.
It turns out that I was right that these cookie cups are absolutely amazing. I like that the recipe only makes 2 servings so that we’re not tempted to eat more. My waistline thanks me. However, they were dangerously easy to make which means that I pretty much want to make them all the time. That wouldn’t be the worst problem to have I suppose. 😉
The cookies will look raw and puffy when you take them out of the oven. But as they cool, the middle sinks in and you get a convenient spot to place a scoop of ice cream. It’s not required of course, but we highly recommend it. Vanilla ice cream is probably ideal, but any kind will do. We only had chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream and that was delightful.
Yup, sugar (I mean heaven) in a cup. My husband said that he’d like less chocolate chips in his cookie cup next time. If you’re a chocoholic like me then the recipe has the perfect amount. Mmm, chocolate.
Deep Dish Cookie Bowls for Two Recipe
(Makes 2 servings)
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 egg yolk
- 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
- Make sure that the oven rack is in the middle and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Set aside two 6 ounce ramekins.
- In a small bowl, whisk together the melted butter and brown sugar.
- Whisk in the vanilla extract and egg yolk.
- Stir in the flour, salt, and baking soda. (I used a spatula at this point but any tool will do. I just didn’t feel like cleaning out the cookie dough from the the whisk.)
- Stir in the chocolate chips.
- Divide the cookie dough evenly into the 2 ramekins and press gently to evenly fill them to the edges.
- Bake them in the preheated oven for 20 to 22 minutes. (I did 20 minutes.) They will look very gooey but that’s okay because it will set as it cools.
- Let them cool for a few minutes. They are best when eaten warm so we ate ours as soon as we could safely touch the ramekins.
- (Optional) Add ice cream and whipped cream on top.
