Brownie for One

I have tried several single serving brownie recipes, and most of them have hardly been worth eating.  This one, however, truly blew me away.  It was delicious!  The consistency was perfect, and the melted chocolate chips added just the right touch.  Oh so yum!

This makes a sizable brownie, so you may want to think about sharing it with a friend.  It would go absolutely wonderfully with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top too!

So, before I start drooling all over my keyboard, let me just give you the recipe.  It comes from No. 2 Pencil, and she has got quite a few great single serving recipes that you can view here.

Brownie for One
From: No. 2 Pencil

2 tablespoons butter (not margarine)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon brown sugar, packed
1 egg yolk
1/4 cup flour
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons chocolate chips

  1. In a mug or ramekin, melt the butter.
  2. Stir in the sugars.
  3. Add the egg yolk and stir.
  4. Lastly, add in the flour, cocoa powder, and chocolate chips, and stir until completely blended.
  5. Microwave for 45-60 seconds.  (Mine took the full minute.)
  6. Allow to cool slightly (if you can) before enjoying.
Ooh, this one is so yummy.  I hope you enjoy!  Happy weekend!
