Brownie In A Mug Recipe
Scenario 1: You have a date coming over for dinner. You've spent all of your time perfecting a delicious meal to impress him/her. But wait, what about dessert? There's not enough time left to bake something. Ok, don't panic, we got this. Whip up a brownie in a mug, and dessert is served within 45 seconds. We even suggest just making one and sharing it...if you get our drift ;) Scenario 2: You've worked all week long, got the oil changed, picked up the clothes from the dry cleaner, and finally got dinner started for your family. The last thing you want to do is make a big ole' pan of brownies, even though you already promised the kids a tasty treat if they eat their veggies. No worries, stir up some simple ingredients and voila, dessert is served. You're welcome super parent. Scenario 3: You just need a chocolate fix. Done. So no matter what scenario you find yourself in, these brownies in a mug are small enough to enjoy, quick enough to make, and can even be prepared ahead of time and quickly cooked when it's time for dessert. And even though we prefer a freshly baked batch of homemade brownies, these will do in a pinch.

Brownie In A Mug Sweet Notes
Do not overcook the brownie. If you have a high wattage microwave, cook for 30 seconds and then check the brownie. If there's no liquid on the surface, it's done
Make these in ramekins ahead of time, store them in the fridge, and then microwave when you're ready to eat
For an extra added bonus, smother on some marshmallow creme, peanut butter, Nutella, anything you'd like... after taking out the brownie out of the microwave
