2 Ingredient Mug Brownies

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

50 Fixes for Brownie Mixes

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.

Microwave Mug Cake

Since the mug brownies took less than 2 ingredients and 90 seconds I knew they it was THE recipe for me.

Brownie Mix

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!

Hi! any idea about calorie count?

Sorry. I couldn't be sure. It will depend on the mix used. I'd check the back of the box and calculate it out that way.

Really good! Considering I’m camping and didn’t have a measuring cup.. I made it kinda thick w just water and mix.. I had to put it on 160 seconds anymore was a burn.. I added Hershey chocolate pieces on top afterwards.. it was chewy and cakey as well. Perfectly the way we wanted it! Thank you!

People who post negative comments amongst all the great reviews should first consider and acknowledge the fact that it “just might” be an error or issue on their end. Please do not discourage others from possibly missing out on a GREAT recipe for people who don’t need a whole batch of “brownies” laying around. It’s a quick indulgence you can even play with and CUSTOMIZE! Maybe two ingredients is just too simple for some. SMH! Thank you for this recipe hack!! My oven broke and I’m craving chocolate! First try was yummy with a teaspoon of mini semisweet chips. Second try with a teaspoon of Nutella and only 2T water... YUMAAAY!! Both using 90 seconds in a little countertop SHARP microwave. Ceramic microwave safe mugs and plain Pillsbury Chocolate Fudge Brownie mix. If you like a gooey but mostly cake like “brownie” in less than 5 mins start to finish... this ones for you!

Thank you for reviewing, Tammy! I can't wait to try your tips. Especially the Nutella! My ten year old is going to flip over that version!
