Chocolate Brownie in a Mug

brownieA couple weeks back I posted a recipe for quick chocolate cake in a mug and was shocked to see so many negative comments from everyone. Most of you complained that it didn't taste good while others thought it made a mess in the microwave, it wasn't worth the effort, etc.

Since then, someone sent me this recipe for Chocolate Brownie in a Mug, and I'm wondering how this one will fare. I made it in the microwave last night in three minutes and sans any mess, and both my husband and my sister didn't think it was too bad.

It might be a fun project with the kids on their day off today so I'm sharing it here, but I'm a little scared to ask... What do you think of chocolate brownie in a mug?
