I had so much fun planning a date night for Alex and I and I wanted to make a dessert that would pair well with our dinner menu! We enjoyed lentil tacos and Mexican Street Corn Salad and I wanted to keep the theme going! I decided to create a single serving brownie recipe but borrow some of the flavors of Mexican Hot Chocolate.

Description

This single serving brownie includes a dash of chili powder for a little bit of spicy flavor that enhances the chocolatey taste!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Dash of chili powder
  • Dash of sea salt on top

Instructions

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a small, microwave-safe ramekin or mug.
  2. Microwave for 45 seconds or until just set.
  3. Microwave times can vary, so you may need to cook for an additional 15-30 seconds.

It was a little crumbly (so you might make a bit of a mess while eating it) but Alex and I both really liked it. It was the perfect dessert to share on the couch- no leftovers! Of course, the next day I wished I had something sweet to snack on… but Alex and I made banana bread over the weekend, so at least I’ve got that to keep my sweet tooth occupied.

Have you ever made single serving desserts?
