Easy triple chocolate microwave cookies for two! Only five minutes to make, and one minute to devour. The perfect pudding for two!

Triple chocolate microwave cookies 

It’s that time of year, when it’s freezing cold outside… STILL… and you want a little bit of comfort. You want a pudding that won’t take long to prepare, and will be so utterly satisfying. 

Say hello to your answer… triple chocolate microwave cookies. OH HOLY MOLY. These little beauties are a morph between my microwave cookies for two, and my chocolate mug cakes. Basically, this recipe is my idea of heaven. 

Quick dessert

At the time of posting this recipe, I am loving all things cookie related, but also quick and easy desserts. So whether you wanted a really quick dessert for you and your loved one – or whether you are having a night in with your bestie.. This is ideal. 

These take a maximum of five minutes to make, and probably only one minute to devour if you are like me and my roommate. Honestly, SO EASY. If you don’t have a microwave though.. not so easy. 

Microwave bakes 

It is a bit of an experimental thing when it comes to microwave bakes such as these – because everyones microwave is different. Mine is an 1000W, and putting the two in together takes about 80 seconds to do. If you have a different microwave, it could take a bit longer!

The other tricky part – is they always look underdone from the outside However, inside, they are perfect. For the first time I would suggest trying 60 seconds and then adding on 10-20 seconds each time. Check with a spoon to see how they are getting on, under the top surface!

I used little white microwave safe ramekins for these because as they are a cookie – they don’t really rise. So, if you use a massively large mug, don’t expect them to come up to the top because they won’t. Either way, adding a scoop of ice cream on top, and you’re in for a win!

If you wanted something indulgent like this, check out my triple chocolate cookie dough desserts – they are made for the oven. These though? A quick and easy cookie dough fix in the microwave. 


I do realise that buying three types of chocolate chips for such a small amount seems a little wasteful, but it’s not. It just means you need to make them again and again till you use all the chocolate chips up! I would advise chocolate chips as well due to the size of the microwave bakes!

These little triple chocolate microwave cookies are the perfect quick cookie dough fix for you and your loved one or friend. I love making these for my roommate and I to devour when we are craving something sweet – and I am sure you will all love them too! Enjoy! x

  • 35 g unsalted butter
  • 45 g light brown sugar
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 75 g plain flour
  • 15 g cocoa powder
  • 15-30 g white chocolate chips
  • 15-30 g milk chocolate chips
  • 15-30 g dark chocolate chips


  • Add your butter and sugar to a bowl, and beat together!
  • Add the egg, flour, cocoa powder and vanilla and beat again.
  • Add in the chocolate chips and mix in, and split evenly between two microwave safe mugs/ramekins!
  • Microwave for 70-100 seconds, and keep an eye on it!
  • Serve with extra chocolate, ice cream or anything! 


  • I use two ramekins for these - which are a decent size but it makes the cookie look 'full'. You can use any mug that is microwave safe but the cookie doesn't really rise so beware of that!
  • You can take out the cocoa powder and use 90g of plain flour!
  • Best eaten warm and fresh.
  • The cookie make look raw a bit on top, but its always more cooked inside so make sure to check! 
  • In my 1000W microwave, these take 70-80 seconds!

    Just made these and they were really tasty, but the texture was a bit more cake-y than cookie, where did I go wrong?!

    • Jane's Patisserie on January 29, 2021 at 9:13 pm

      That just means they are slightly over done so need a bit less time in the microwave! xx

    Hi Jane

    Do you know roughly what size ramekins you used for this recipe? Last time I made these, I used a couple of small mugs and they tasted amazing but I’m now looking at buying a new set of ramekins and I can’t decide whether to go for 9x5cm or 10x6cm! x

    Hi Jane,

    I’m just wondering whether or not these would work in the oven? We don’t have a microwave haha. xx

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 20, 2020 at 3:56 pm

      Have a look at the oven version that is on my blog!

  5. Sian-Louise Kapoor on August 20, 2020 at 12:58 pm

    I’m lacto-vegetarian so don’t eat egg. Could I use something else?

    • Jane's Patisserie on August 21, 2020 at 12:29 pm

      It may be worth using a splash of a type of milk!

  6. Rachel on June 20, 2020 at 10:59 pm

    Hi Jane, are these “gooey” or is the oven recipe best for that? Thank you!

    • Jane's Patisserie on June 21, 2020 at 3:26 pm

      The oven recipe is naturally more gooey – but these will be as long as you don’t over cook them! x

  7. Cornish baker on May 2, 2020 at 8:10 pm

    I followed this exactly and they came out really dry 🙁 any ideas why?

    • Jane's Patisserie on May 2, 2020 at 8:14 pm

      Simply means they are oven done! All microwaves work differently as mentioned on the post so it needed less time!

    Been craving chocolate fudge cake since lockdown & stumbled across this recipe after seeing one of your posts on Mrs Hinch Instagram & then following you. Me & the husband are shocked at how nice this recipe was, will definitely have it again!

    These look delicious! I can’t wait to try them. Could I use just ordinary caster/granulated sugar rather than brown sugar?
    Love all your recipes by the way!

    • Jane's Patisserie on April 29, 2020 at 9:35 am

      Ahh yay! yes, you definitely can for these!!

    So quick and they taste amazing

  11. SP on March 31, 2020 at 11:37 am

    Could I use Stork for these or does the recipe require unsalted butter?

  12. Alica on March 4, 2020 at 11:08 am

    If you are single and still like yummy puddings, could you microwave one and save the other for the next day?

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 4, 2020 at 1:49 pm

      Yes! Keep it in the fridge covered and it’ll be fine!

  13. K on March 4, 2020 at 10:34 am

    Can these be frozen, thawed then baked? Xx

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 4, 2020 at 1:49 pm

      With regular cookie mixture I bake from frozen, so these can be microwaved from frozen too – they will just take a bit longer!

      Hi, any idea how many calories in 1 serving?

    These look delicious. I just wanted to know if they are an updated version of your previous chocolate cookies for two as I’d really fancied making those (they were pictured in a shallower dish) but hadn’t got round to it with being unwell for a while. Thanks

    • Jane's Patisserie on March 4, 2020 at 9:22 am

      The other one you are referring to are not microwave ones – they’re for the oven.
