  10. I made this and put it with mint chocolate chip ice cream and it's a perfect midnight snack!

  11. I made this today and it really is that good! Its a fudgy brownie, not a cakey one. I used self-rising flour and omitted the salt and choco chips...doubled the recipe in a soup mug and cooked it for the noted 1 min 30 secs. Phenom. and I too added ice cream.
    When I made this the batter turned out super thick and a bit dry so it scared me but no fear, it works! next time im going to try adding peanut butter or cinnamon!
