I adapted the recipe to include dark cocoa and the white chocolate chips that have been sitting in my fridge since my last project... which was a great choice. I can't wait to make these again, although I'm a bit worried that now brownies are just 5 minutes away. :)
Grab a spoon, I give you... Microwave Mug Brownies!
Dark Chocolate Microwave Mug Brownies
(Makes 2 mugs full of chocolatey deliciousness)
4 tbsp unsalted butter
4 tbsp water
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
2 dashes salt
8 tbsp granulated sugar
4 tbsp Hershey's Special Dark unsweetened cocoa powder
8 tbsp all-purpose flour
A few handfuls of chocolate chips - mine were white chocolate
Add 2 tbsp of butter to each mug and melt in the microwave... zapping each about 15-20 seconds. Next add to each 2 tbsp water, 1/4 tsp vanilla, dash of salt, 4 tbsp sugar, and 2 tbsp cocoa powder. Whisk with a fork, making sure it is blended well. Next, add 4 tbsp flour to each and whisk again, taking care of any remaining clumps. Top with a healthy handful of chocolate chips, and microwave for 60-90 seconds each. I did exactly 60 seconds in my microwave, and they were perfect -- just cakey enough, but still gooey. If you like your brownies on the very cakey side, I would imagine 90 seconds would suit you better.
Enjoy responsibly. :)
