Easy Microwave Molten Mug Brownie

 Here’s a delicious treat to get you through the cooler months, as well as the perfect way to satisfy those chocolate cravings on-the-go!  The best part? (Aside from the ooey gooey deliciousness.) It only takes about 5 minutes, and you get to eat directly out of the mug.


  • 1 standard coffee mug (11 oz or larger)
  • 4 tablespoons flour
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa
  • a dash of salt
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • a handful of chocolate chips



1| Add dry ingredients to your mug and stir.

2| Thoroughly mix in oil, water, and vanilla.

3| Sprinkle in a small handful of chocolate chips.

5| Microwave 60 to 90 seconds.

Finally, enjoy!  To sweeten the deal, you may choose to add a dollop of ice cream on top of your mug brownie – I would highly recommend this. I also added a little bit of peanut butter to the mix, and it was a very wise decision. The result was uhhhmazing! I imagine marshmallows, chocolate syrup, or nuts would also be quite tasty.

Make a brownie in 5 minutes.

    I can imagine peanut butter and ice cream would make this even more delicious. I may have to make one of these soon…it suddenly decided to get cold!

    I’ve tried other recipes before but will this one end up rubbery?
