 They say that you are not supposed to reward yourself with food...OK, I get that. But every once in a while, I crave something deeply chocolate, deeply warm and gooey. This recipe fills that bill perfectly and since it is only a single serving, there isn't a whole pan of guilty calories calling your name the rest of the day.

 Pure Heaven in 5 minutes

I've been looking for a single serving brownie recipe like this for a long time because Hubby doesn't like brownies...go figure😉 

1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon baking powder
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
3 tablespoons milk
1 tablespoon butter (room temperature)
1 tablespoons pecans (optional)
2 tablespoon chocolate chips (or 1 tablespoon mini chocolate chips)
In a small microwave safe bowl, mix everything together until smooth (mixture will be very thick). Cook in the microwave.
Now here comes the only tricky part of the recipe. Total cooking time in the microwave is 1 to 2 minutes depending on how powerful your microwave is. My microwave is a 1000 watt machine and it takes 1 minute 20 seconds. You will have to watch your microwave  carefully the first time you make this treat, so you don't over bake it (use the toothpick test for doneness the first time). LET THE BAKED BROWNIE SIT FOR ABOUT A MINUTE.
NOTE: I am embarrassed to say I know this recipe by heart now. Any flavored chocolate, peanut butter, white (etc.) chips will work well.
NOTE: The recipe doesn't say you have to, but I bake mine in a little ramekin that I spray with cooking spray.

Thank you Coleen! Last night I had such chocolate cravings that it was all I could do not to rip open a bag of chocolate chips! Now I can make this small dessert and not worry about leftovers calling my name. :)
