  1. This is a little mug of chocolate heaven! Not too sweet but that's okay with me. Mine took about 30 seconds longer to cook and I had to turn the mug around for the extra 30 seconds to get it to cook evenly. Great quick chocolate fix - thanks for sharing the recipe!

  2. Made this for Spring PAC 2014 and what a winner! Made it just for me (DH always says he doesn't want any sweets...but he took a bite of mine and ate it so I had to make another one for me). I like the light coffee flavor and like some others I think I will add a little more sugar for sweetness. Thank you for posting.
  3. What a fun idea and very handy when you have a sweet tooth craving! I thought it was just sweet enough. I will have to play around with the timing. I tried 60 seconds and it wasn't done. I put it in for another 20 seconds , and still not done. I went another 10 and the top still wasn't completely done. I ate it anyway! Next time, I think I'll try it for a consecutive 75 seconds to see if that does the trick. I think this recipe takes some playing with the times, since microwave ovens vary. I don't mind experimenting with chocolate!
  4. This was extremely quick... and easy! I can't wait to have my 6 yr and 2 yr old grand-babies try this next time they come over. I agree... it could use a little more sweetness, but "good as is". I let it cool a bit, then put a smathering of a chocolate/peanut butter frosting on the top! Yummy. Thank you for posting. (Made for PAC - Spring 2013) I forgot to mention... I doubled this recipe and used a crock bowl. I zapped it for 1min:35sec, then the old "toothpick test" came out clean (and the brownie was moist... NOT dry).
  5. This was really easy to make, and I like having one-serving desserts (so there isn't a lot left to tempt me later). But it wasn't as sweet as the brownies I'm used to, but I hesitate to add more sugar since I think it has plenty for one serving as it is. Thank you for sharing your recipe, brandon mahoney.
