Valentine's Day will soon be here. Want to do something homemade without the hassle? Try this Molten Mug Brownie.
It takes about three minutes to make, from start to finish. Just mix and zap. You've got a rich, gooey chocolate fix without washing a bowl or baking pan.
Because you make it in a mug instead of a whole batch, there's also some built-in portion control. The recipe I devised for a large 12- or 16-ounce mug makes a rich dessert that's plenty for two people to share, which adds a romantic note as well.
This is also a great idea for college students or others who don't have an oven.
