Satisfy that sweet tooth with these decadent 2 Ingredient Mug Brownies. All you need is a large mug, brownie mix, and water!
Can we talk brownies for a second?
I have a deep love for those sweet chocolaty bars and they will always have a special place in my belly.
I dig homemade but am definitely not one to snub my nose at a box mix. So when I saw this cleverly titled book 50 Fixes for Brownie Mixes, from my friend Aimee at Like Mother Like Daughter, I knew I needed to add it to my collection.
The first recipe I knew I needed to make?
2 Ingredient Mug Brownies
I was pleasantly surprised by the wide variety of recipes included.
There is everything from brownie pancakes, brownie ice cream, brownie milk shakes, and MUG BROWNIES.
Basically what I’m saying is that you need to head into Costco or some other bulk warehouse and buy a bunch of brownie mixes so you can be prepared to make at least a dozen of these treats.
Since the mug brownies took less than 2 ingredients and 90 seconds I knew they it was THE recipe for me.
After pulling literally every single thing out of my pantry searching for a boxed mix (which was in the back because nothing can be easy, right?) I was ready to get started!
How to make 2 ingredient mug brownies
I measured 1/2 cup of the dry mix in a ramekin (I know, I know… Not a mug. But they are so cute and I couldn’t help myself) with 3 tablespoons of water.
After a 90 second ride on the microwave merry-go-round they were ready to be devoured!
Hard to believe you can have a dessert ready in under five minutes, am I right?
We topped ours with a little ice cream and chocolate syrup.
We agreed that it gets two thumbs up.
It did turn out a little more cake like but that works for me since I prefer my brownies less fudge textured.
NOTE BEFORE YOU START: This is a mug recipe that only uses two ingredients. It won’t have the same oven baked taste that the classic recipe you know and love has.
HOWEVER, they are still amazing and perfect for a quick treat!
