Brownie In A Mug

by Makaria Sanders

For all you after-school snackers, here is a super cool way to brighten your afternoons and help motivate you while you do your homework.

Here’s what you will need:

  • A cute mug (12 oz.)
  • 2 Tbs. butter (melted)
  • 2 Tbs. water
  • ¼ tsp. Vanilla extract
  • 1 dash salt
  • 4 Tbs. granulated sugar
  • 2 Tbs. unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 Tbs. all-purpose flour
  • Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream (optional)


In your cute little mug, combine the water, butter, vanilla, and salt. Whisking in between each addition, pour in the cocoa powder, sugar, and flour. Put in the microwave for about a minute to a minute and a half. The middle should be soft, almost flowing. Don’t cook it too long– it could burn!

For a little special something, add in the whipped cream or chilled ice cream. Now all you have to do is enjoy your beautiful little brownie!
