I love this recipe for whenever I need a dose of chocolate but don’t want to spend the time whipping up an entire batch of brownies (or deal with the resulting pressure to eat the entire pan–it’s got built-in portion control!).  It’s a simple recipe that’s easy to remember and assemble.



1 Tablespoon cocoa powder
1 Tablespoon flour
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1 Tablespoon water
1 Tablespoon canola oil
Pinch of salt
Scoop of ice cream (optional of course, but these brownies are extremely chocolaty and a little ice cream balances it out nicely)

In a mug or small microwave safe container, combine all the ingredients (except the ice cream) and mix well.  Go ahead and lick the spoon when you’re done–there’s no raw egg.

Microwave on high for 30 seconds.  Top with ice cream and enjoy!

  1. This could be the start of a really bad thing. 🙂 I think I am totally in love!

    Love your new design by the way, the pictures are so pretty!


  2. It sure could be! I prefer to look at it though as portion control–I mean, everybody's gotta enjoy dessert once in a while so at least this way you can have just a little bit without the temptation of the entire pan of brownies!
    And thank you! I finally figured out how to get it a little more organized.
