Brownie For One

A brownie in a cup for the [lazy] brownie lovers. (Don’t worry, I fit that category too!) Sometimes I crave chocolate like a mad woman. My schedule got very busy in the past month but my craving didn’t calm down so I needed to find ways to make quick and easy treats. I am in love with cupped desserts! This brownie is so scrumptious, my eyes widened with chocolate shock when I tasted my creation. What I love about this brownie is that you can then put it into a container and bring it somewhere. No joke, it’s delicious even when cooled and even I was surprised about that. Brownie for one in under 5 minutes? YES, YES AND MORE YES! Eat with caution, this may get a bit addictive. I will not be responsible for flying buttons and lost eyes! Happy baking!
