A Chocolate Chip Cookie under 5 minutes

It’s midnight, and your stomach growls. It’s craving one of those warm, soft cookies scattered with bits of chocolate. What to do? What to do? You make this recipe. It literally takes less than a minute to put together (if you’re fast) and even less to cook and eat. My favorite part about this cookie is that it actually tastes incredibly good- like a choc chip cookie right out of the oven. There are a few requirements: You must own a microwave, NOT have high cholesterol, and NOT be on a diet. It’s loaded- but seriously. It’s midnight, who cares?
