Grab a mug, a cozy blanket, warm slippers and curl up on the sofa for some Netflix to chill with this oh-so chocolate-y microwave brownie in a mug.

Additional notes:

  • Add more liquid for a brownie batter texture
  • Add less liquid for a cake-like texture
  • Optional: You can also bake in the oven for 25 to 30 minutes in a casserole mug or individual casserole dish.
