What size ramekin??? Wud be so grateful if you cud be more specific. We are on our last partial package of choc chips & we are high risk so we have not gone out in months. people who shop for us have not been able to find them for us. I don’t want to mess up our last bit of chips by having the wrong size. Please advise. Thanks so much! Love your eggs! 🥚


Hi Jan! This recipe is designed to be baked in an 8oz ramekin (~4" in diameter). We hope this helps and that you can find more chocolate chips soon!

Can this one cookie be made in a microwave instead the oven?


Hi Susana-- We haven't tested this recipe in a microwave before, but do know there are recipe's out there for microwaved cookies rather than baked. If you test it out using our recipe, we'd love to hear how it comes out!

How much did you like this recipe?


Took much longer time to cook. Even in a convection oven, it still took me 30+ minutes at 350. Taste was good but the cooking time needs to be longer or the heat higher


Tastes DELICIOUS. However, it does require longer cooking time if you want it fully cooked. Personally, I like it gooey so not a problem for me. I did it in my toaster oven, and the second time I made this I put a piece of foil on top so it wouldn't burn (very close to the heating elements) and loved my gooey cookie with a glass of milk :)
