Obviously when I saw a recipe for a brownie in a mug I got super excited! It's just one serving so who cares if Matt hates it, and if I mess it up I'm not wasting a pan full of brownies! I know you're getting really excited here so I'll let you know: this blog has a happy ending, the brownie rocks.
This was a Pinterest find, and you can find the original recipe on JoyBx. The recipe is really easy and quick! Which can be dangerous for those of us who shouldn't be 2 minutes away from brownies and any given time. Start off with a mug and add in 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour, a pinch of salt, and 2 tablespoons of cocoa. Mix all these dry ingredients together.
See how easy? You're already half way done! Now add in 2 tablespoons of oil and 3 tablespoons of water, then mix again. You're going to want a runny consistency.
At this point I added on toppings. Anything can be added, I chose Heath baking bits and they tasted great!
Cook for 1 minute 40 seconds and remove from microwave. I let it sit for a bit before I added ice cream. It was still hot, but my ice cream didn't get too gross. I also added hot fudge, which did not hold it's ground on the ice cream for very long. Add any fun sundae toppings on top.
Warning: this recipe actually requires two mugs. One for the brownie and one full of milk because this is super rich! All brownie lovers rejoice! And enjoy your Toffee Brownie in a mug in less than 2 minutes!
