Have you ever had the craving for some chocolatey goodness and didn’t have one speck of candy in the house? There are times I just don’t want to pull out the baking pans and do the whole shebang. This recipe was surprisingly good and ready in about 90 seconds! I repeat, 90 seconds.
I have my daughter and son to thank for this recipe. My daughter loves cruising the internet for recipes and my son loves experimenting. We tried several versions of this brownie in a mug type of recipe. Some were too dense, sticky or just didn’t have an appealing texture or taste. When my son whipped up this version, I knew we had a winner. Its portion size was perfect for having a little now and some later. The flavor was wonderful and the texture was just cakey enough for my liking. Everything can be mixed in one large mug or microwave safe bowl to save on dish washing which is an added bonus in my book.
Omit the nuts if you are allergic or prefer a more cake type brownie. This is also great with a dollop of ice cream or a shot of whipped cream on top.
