There are currently four types of Mug brownies to choose from - chocolate, chocolate orange, espresso and gluten free. Your kit is packed into a smart box and contains four tubs, each containing a perfect portion of brownie mixture. The ingredients are of the highest quality. Expect organic flour, Belgian chocolate and fairtrade coffee.
The instructions are simple - pop a tablespoon of butter into your favourite mug and microwave for 20 seconds. Then stir in your brownie mix and two tablespoons of water. Pop back into the microwave for 60 seconds. Now for the important bit - RESTRAIN YOURSELF AND LEAVE THE MUG ALONE FOR 5 MINUTES then simply add a scoop of ice cream and enjoy.
After dinner tonight, we all grabbed our favourite mugs to try these brownies for ourself. The recipe is so simple that even my three year old could manage it with supervision. Here is how we got on:-
Mix before microwaved
The finished product - in under 6 minutes!
I can confirm the brownie was definitely chocolatey and gooey!
These kits are so versatile. They are well presented and high quality meaning they would make a wonderful gift. They are also they perfect way to impress your friends at a dinner party, I like the suggestion of using a teacup rather than a mug and serving these brownies as a dessert. This would work particularly well for the Espresso flavour.
TOP TIP:- If serving these to guests, make sure you wipe the rim and excess mixture from the inside of your cup before you place it in the microwave to give a neat finish.
I have saved 4 pot's of brownie mix in our cupboard for our first walk home from school in the rain/snow this winter. Mug Brownies have the same warming effect as a hot chocolate drink would but are definitely quicker and easier to make.

Thanks to Bakedin for sending us a selection of Mug Brownies to review, we all had fun trying them out and are looking forward to our next family movie night in when we're going to make them again.
