Brownies In Minutes, Turtle Styled with Marshmallow Creme

Brownies In Minutes, Turtle Styled with Marshmallow Creme

Hi everybody :)
I know it's been a while since my last post. I've been kind of busy around the house lately. But I do have a nice treat to share with you all today. My daughter and I were having some fun tweaking this recipe. This brownie was prepared in a microwave in less than 2 minutes. If you follow my blog, you'll know that I normally shy away from "microwave cooking," but today I'm taking the plunge. Seeing that the recipe didn't required eggs makes it so much easier for me to accept the challenge. (Cooking eggs, meats, or fish in the microwave is still taking me some time getting accustomed to.)   

Want a deliciously moist fudge brownie in less than 2 minutes? Well, let's get it started...   

Brownie In Minutes 

Modified from: Brownie In A Cup 

3 Tablespoons hot water
1/4 teaspoon instant coffee  (optional)
2 Tablespoons oil
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
2 Tablespoons cocoa powder (I used 1 Tbsp. Special Dark & 1 Tbsp. Regular)
2 Tablespoons packed brown sugar
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 Tablespoon Jif Mocha Cappuccino Spread or chocolate chips (optional)
1 - 2 Tablespoon chopped pecans, toasted  (optional)
4 Tablespoons All Purpose Flour (I used 2 Tbsp. all-purpose & 2 Tbsp. White Lily Self-Rising, to give it a little lift.) 

Topping  (optional)
Marshmallow Creme
Smucker's Caramel Ice Cream Topping or Homemade Caramel
Smucker's Fudge Ice Cream Topping  (I used Jif Mocha Cappuccino Spread) 
Toasted Pecans, chopped
Whisk together water, coffee, oil, and vanilla in a medium bowl. (You can use the microwaveable mug or dish you're cooking it in.  If you want to turn it out onto a dish after cooking, mix in a bowl and spray the mug or dish nonstick cooking spray before pouring in the mixture.)

Add the cocoa powder, sugars, mocha spread, and flour; stir until smooth. 

Place in a microwaveable mug or dish. Cook in microwave for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes. (It took me 1 minute and 15 seconds) Check after the 1 minute mark. Center should still be soft. (The picture below is how it looked when finished cooking.)

 Top with marshmallow creme, drizzle with caramel and fudge and sprinkle with nuts.

The Taste: AMAZING! REPEAT, if you dare!! :)
ENJOY! Come again...
