I love this recipe. Have made it a ton of times since it was first shown. Just perfect best of all, no tempting seconds lying around. Have tried some of the other "mug" or "for one" recipes and they are all great!

Absolutely delicious...definitely don't want to overcook it, because you'd be missing out on the best part. As soon as you see it still moist in the middle on top, then take it out. You'll want that fudgy gooey to go along with the brownie...ooooh that is gooood! I had to keep telling myself no to making another one!

This is fabulous! So easy, already have it memorized. It is great with dark chocolate cocoa powder. Makes it very dark but very rich! I even add 1T semi-sweet chocolate chips to the top before microwaving sometimes. Satisfies that craving without the extra temptation to go back for more! I did find it necessary to adjust cooking times due to wattage of microwave. This is truly a decadent treat that is EASY.

Great recipe! I just made this and it tastes great. I wanted a dessert to enjoy my personal down time, now that all of the kids are sleeping. This is definitely on the mom's favorite list. I plan to make this several more times this week, but I will use 2 tbs of sugar instead of 4 so that I can get some sleep. Thank you for sharing your practical family recipes!

I found this recipe tonight when I was craving some sort of dessert. Made it and it is a keeper. I do think it could cook just a little longer but it was just what I was wanting.

I made this this and it is good for a late night chocolate craving or a treat for kids. Keep in mind it is not intended to be a gourmet brownie. It is still pretty good for a dessert made and ready to eat in a couple minutes.

Thank you "Mr Foods Team"! What a wonderful way to satisfy that [chocolate craving]. It works great for my husband and me, as theres not a whole pan of 'brownies' to devour:) plus when my 'grandchildren' want something quick, this is just the trick. We enjoyed it very much. Mine trned out as you said, 'slightly molten.' Lots of desserts are made this way on purpose like 'lava cakes,' etc. Its just delicious! Again, 'thank you so much,' and keep those easy and tasty recipes coming! Sincerely, "little ole' Ohio cook," Sherry

Thank you for your comments, we love hearing from you!

It was not rubbery, a little gooey but very tasty. It's not a fancy pants brownie but when you consider it takes a minute to mix and 70 seconds to cook it will satisfy what needs to be satisfied. Geez people, what do you expect from a 2 minute start to finish recipe? Will make again for the fam.

so I take it this recipe isn't designed to be a real brownie and if you cook for two minutes will it firm up? Just curious

well, I think the brownie will become like rubber
