Brownie for One! Yum!!

I've been searching around on Pinterest lately and came across several different recipes for cakes, brownies, and such in a mug. There are a multitude of variations on this basic recipe theme.

I tried this one this evening and it came out pretty well. The original recipe calls for a scoop of ice cream. That might have made it a bit more "gooey" but if I had thrown in a Hershey Kiss or two and it would have been awesome!

Mug Brownie 

1 egg
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 cup powdered sugar (a little bit more would give it an extra punch)

In a mug, whisk together the egg, cocoa, and powdered sugar until a batter forms. Zap the mug full of batter in the microwave for 60 seconds (can be up to 90 seconds). The key is to watch it through the window of the microwave door, cake is done when it rises to the top of the mug and then just begins to fall.
