Brownies in a Mug-- Perfect for the Kids to Bake & the Perfect Chocolate Fix for Mom!

Today, my son and decided that we wanted a special treat. I thought it would be fun to have him  bake his own treat. The biggest problem when we bake is the oven-- it is way too hot for him to "complete" his baking. So today, we used a different appliance to make Brownies-- the Microwave!  We each made an individual batch of brownies in a microwave safe mug and nuked it!
I did the majority of measuring and my son added all of the ingredients and handled all of the mixing.
 My son put on his chef hat and apron and got mixing!
In a mug, we added 1/4 cup of sugar...
1/4 of flour...
2 Tablespoons of Cocoa Powder and a pinch of salt. 
We mixed it up and then added the wet ingredients...
3 Tablespoons of water and 2 Tablespoons of oil.

Mix it until well combined and it is a smooth consistency. 
Put it in the microwave for 1 minute and 40 seconds and you are ready to eat!
After all of his hard work, my son added whipped cream and rainbow sprinkles to his brownie!!
I assure you, he REALLY enjoyed it!!!
