Pressure Cooker Chocolate Chip Cookie for One

This is only the third time I have ever made something sweet in my Instant Pot.  Last year, I made an Instant Pot peppermint vanilla latte, which turned out pretty good.  After spring break I came home from Florida and decided it was time to make Instant Pot Key-Lime Pie.  But that is it.  So much pulled chicken in this thing, but hardly any desserts.

I don’t usually keep too many sweets around the house.  I try to stay away from sugary things if at all possible, which is why you don’t see too many desserts on this website.   And actually, I tend to gravitate more towards savory or sour foods rather than sweet.

But when I do want something sweet, I tend to want either a warm brownie or a warm chocolate chip cookie, usually with a tall glass of milk.

A few times a year, my husband will make my favorite brownie mix after the children go to bed.  Other times I need to fend for myself.

Which brings me to this mason jar chocolate chip cookie for one.  This is ooey, gooey, melty and the perfect thing to whip up when you want something chocolatey and sweet!  I have made those microwave mug cake/cookie recipes a few times, but making this in the Instant Pot was soooo much better! This cookie for one came out perfectly steamed instead of dried out.

Here is a video I made for you on how easy this is!

As you might see from this video that I use a super tiny whisk.  I bought myself this teeny tiny whisk after seeing it used to mix marinades and salad dressings on all those recipe videos on facebook.   I love it, and I use it all the time!

This was such a great way to satisfy my sweet tooth without going overboard.  Next time I will double the recipe and make one for my husband too!
