Brownies in a Mug: A 2 Minute Holiday Treat

There’s nothing better than brownies, except for brownies IN a mug. They’re inexpensive, delicious, and easy, which makes them the perfect holiday treat. It only takes about two minutes to create one of these delectable holiday deserts.

Other than the mug, a microwave, and measuring spoons, here’s what you’ll need:

  • ¼ cup of all purpose flour
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder (unsweetened)
  • 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons of water
  • Toppings to garnish, examples: peanut butter, crushed candy canes, or hazelnut spread

Step 1

Combine the flour, sugar, cocoa powder, vegetable oil, and water in your mug.

Step 2

Mix the ingredients until you’ve gotten a smooth mixture. I find that using a fork works well.

Step 3

Place your mug in the microwave for 1 minute and 40 seconds. The time you cook your brownie will depend on how strong your microwave is, so you may have to play with it in order to get the perfect brownie.

Step 4

Take out your mug, let the brownie cool, add your toppings, and enjoy!
