What do you do when you get a sudden irresistible craving for something chocolate or something sweet? How about a 3 Minute Mug Brownie?? Sometimes food needs to be just that easy!
Yes! Yes, you can satisfy a sweet craving in the best way! A decadent 3 Minute Mug Brownie hits all the notes of warm chocolatey goodness! It’s sweet, rich and just enough to hit the “spot”! Today I am once again teaming up with ACME Markets to share news about their Stock Up Sale and contest to win groceries for a year! They have graciously sponsored this post, which allows me to keep doing what I love…Create & share recipes!
All you need are 5 minutes and just like that you enjoying your 3 Minute Mug Brownie! The best part is that you can mix, cook and eat all in the same mug! That’s a big win in my world!
Add your ingredients, mix, and then microwave for 90 uninterrupted seconds, after that all you need to do is grab a spoon and dig in. Now you may have come across images of a Mug Cake that is to the top of a mug.
A Mug Cake may be good…but let me tell you, a Mug Brownie is better! No icing necessary, just warm, fudgy (or cakey…you decide) goodness! I tested and tested out this recipe, I made it with egg and without, with vegetable oil, grapeseed oil and coconut oil. I made an Oreo cream cheese topping for it, I added chocolate chips and coconut chips. In the end, a straight up 3 Minute Mug Brownies the way to go, no garnish necessary, I did, however, enjoy a sprinkling of shaved coconut on top for a little crunch and my kids added caramel. If you are a chocoholic like my husband, mother, and sister, go ahead and drizzle a lil’ hot fudge over-top.
Lucky for me that ACME Markets is in the midst of the Stock-up Sale with all the recipe testing I do! I know I can count on them to provide some serious savings. It’s time to look for your favorites and stock up! While you are at it, ACME Markets is having a contest! Someone is going to win groceries for a year!! Can you imagine that?? Read on to see how easy it is to enter.
Shopping at ACME Markets during the Stock Up Sale means I can get all my favorite staples from General Mills, Coca-Cola, Kraft and Nabisco at a great value. My daughter and niece are crazy for both Oui™ by Yoplait® Yogurts and Yoplait® Vanilla and Peach yogurts; I can’t keep the fridge full. They eat them every day at least once.
Wait till they see how many I bought this time, lol! My son loves Cinnamon Toast Crunch™ and he is a brownie-aholic! The kid has never liked cake of any kind, I always make him a brownie cake…Betty Crocker™ Brownies are a part of the sale and contest, so yea for me! Betty Crocker has a variety of brownie mixes, you can get one with a caramel packet or a chocolate packet and easily amp up your 3 Minute Mug Brownie a bit.
