Expedition Pinterest: Brownie in a Mug

So I went to dinner with my hubby today and the place where we went isn't known for their awesome desserts. Food yes, desserts, not so much. When we left the restaurant I had a huge craving for chocolate but there were no open places where I could go in and get chocolate cake except the grocery store but its such a hassle to get in and out quickly. When I got home I remembered I pinned something on Pinterest about making a brownie super quickly so I decided to give it a try.

Here's what I used:
4 tablespoons of flour
3 Heaping tablespoons of hot cocoa mix
1 tablespoon of milk chocolate chips
2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
2 tablespoons of water and a pinch of salt

You'll also need a mug, a microwave, and something to stir with. The Pinterest recipe calls for 2 tablespoons plain cocoa powder and 4 tablespoons of sugar but I didn't have either so I improvised and hot cocoa mix already has sugar in it plus 4 tablespoons of sugar seems like a lot.

Basic directions:
Place dry ingredients in mug then add oil and water. Stir together until clumps flour are gone. Microwave for 50-60 seconds and voila!! You have a personal sized brownie!

Even with the substitutions I made it still turned out awesome!

Post a comment below if you tried out this pin or any other one that is worth trying.
