How To Make Cookies (In The Microwave!)

This isn’t just any old “How To Make Cookies”. No. This is special.

This is “How To Make Cookies (In The Microwave!)”.

It’s kind of like a follow up to “How To Make The Softest, Fluffiest, Quick Mug Cakes”.

KidMag just has a thing for making stuff in the microwave, probably because it’s safer and easier for kids to do. Although it’s a lot safer for kids to use a microwave opposed to an oven, it important to have adult supervision at all times when using a microwave or an oven.

To start making your cookie, gather these ingredients:

  • White flour (Do not use any other kind of flour.)
  • Baking powder
  • White sugar
  • Brown sugar
  • Vanilla extract
  • Melted butter
  • Measuring tools
  • A container big enough for combining all of the ingredients
  • Microwave safe plate


Let’s begin!

STEP ONE: Take your container and put in two tablespoons of melted butter. IMG_8232.jpeg

STEP TWO: Add one tablespoon of white sugar and one tablespoon of brown sugar. You can use all white sugar or all brown sugar if you don’t have both, but it’s best to have a combination of the two. IMG_8233.jpeg

STEP THREE: Add 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract.


STEP FOUR: Add 1/4 cup of white flour. Make sure it is white flour, or it will taste kind of funny.


STEP FIVE: Add three pinches of salt. It might be hard to tell how much a pinch is, but an easy way to tell is to literally reach inside of the salt and pinch your fingers together. Just take a pinch of salt out of the salt shaker. Literally. it’s a pinch of salt.


STEP SIX: Add a quarter teaspoon of baking powder to the mixture.


STEP SEVEN: And now, the crown jewel of all the ingredients, add a tablespoon of chocolate chips to the bowl. You can add more if you want. (You probably will.)


STEP EIGHT: Transfer the mixture onto your microwavable plate.


STEP NINE: Shape your cookie into a circle on the plate. It works best if the edges are a little bit thinner than the center. Depending on the plate and the type of microwave you have, you might want to place a piece of parchment paper underneath the cookie.



STEP TEN: Place in the microwave. Microwave it in 10-second intervals. If any part of your cookie starts bubbling up, remove the cookie from the microwave immediately and cut it off.


STEP ELEVEN: Remove it from the microwave with an oven mitt or tea towel with an adult’s supervision. Place it in the refrigerator for around 25 minutes until it hardens.

Take your cookie out of the fridge and enjoy!
