Ms. Head begins by adding a tablespoon of melted butter, powdered sugar, light brown sugar and an egg yolk to a mug, mixing until smooth.
Then she adds flour and salt until they’re just combined before sprinkling a generous handful of chocolate chips into the dough and mixing them in.
Finally, Mrs. Head pushes a Lindor ball into the middle of the mixture, gently folding it to cover the chocolate.
She puts the mug in the microwave for a minute over high heat and serves the hot cookie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Ms. Head cautions against over-mixing the flour, making the cookie crumbly rather than sticky.
She says it’s also important to use “level tablespoons” rather than heaps to keep the mixture from drying out.
The photos of the cookies, which have accumulated more than 22,200 likes since they were uploaded, have elicited delighted reactions.
“It sounds amazing,” replied a woman.
Others have tagged their friends, suggesting they bake the treats to pass the time as growing coronavirus restrictions once again confine millions to their homes.
