Chocolate Mug Brownie
1 Min

Already in your pajamas and craving something sweet? No need to run out to the store! Our recipe for Chocolate Mug Brownie is a personal-sized dessert that's made with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry (Bonus: This is a chocolate mug brownie with no egg!). Plus, it only takes one minute! It looks like your me-time just got even better. 

We used to think that cake was the only dessert you could make in a mug, but we've never been so glad to be proven wrong. This brownie in a mug is everything that you love about the traditional gooey chocolate dessert, but you don't have to wait around for a whole pan of brownies to bake! Like with regular brownies, this recipe can also be dressed up in any number of ways. Try topping your mug brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, some chocolate chips, or even a drizzle of caramel syrup. The possibilities are endless, and we know you'll come up with something genius and delicious!

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 dash salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 4 tablespoons sugar
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour

What to Do

  1. In a microwaveable 12-ounce coffee mug, combine butter, water, vanilla, and salt; whisk well. Add cocoa powder, sugar, and flour, whisking well after each addition.
  2. Microwave 60 to 75 seconds. Center should be slightly molten. Be careful not to overcook.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Just made it and it is delicious. I used a little dish, which made it not so tall as in a cup. No butter, so used coconut oil, melted. Less sugar and milk instead of water. That will be my to-go chocolate cake recipe from now on!

Absolutely delicious can't wait to make it again, i add chocolate syrup, will add pieces of chocolate next time, I served mine with ice cream. It was as good as the restaurant brownie, I will definitely be making this a part of my Christmas dessert and all special occassions. Thank you

Add a little instant coffee - so good! (Not recommended for late night, lol)

sounds like a plan. Thanks

This would make a wonderful midnight treat!

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
