A fabulous fix for chocoholics! The boiling water forms a thick, scrumptious pudding covered by the fantasically rich brownie. It's a bit like a souffle, but with a wonderful twist!

I dont have an oven. Can I make this in my microwave?

I tried this recipe but didn't care for it using the boiling water - it was too thin and bitter - so I changed it up buy replacing the hot water with hot unsweetened vanilla almond milk. That made all the difference in the world! The pudding was creamy and thicker. I'm sure regular milk would work as well.

One of our favorites - we also add chopped nuts to the dry ingrediant mix. And combine the cocoa and brown sugar with the boiling water before pouring it all over the mix. Chef #1478365 may have had bad luck if using a low quality cocoa - but you can always add more cocoa than the recipe calls for.
