What to Do With Leftover Candy

Picture this: You arrive home after an exhausting day at work, hankering for a sweet quick-fix. You don't have the time or energy to make much ado of it, but you want something now and you need it to be quick and easy.

Or another scenario: a friend pops in for a surprise visit. You'd love to offer her a snack, but the cupboards are bare...well, almost. You usually have a few kitchen staples and chocolates around the house. So why not whip up a 3 minute batch of microwave mug brownies??

Mug cakes and brownies were invented for just these scenarios. And who doesn't have a few stray Hershey's chocolate or chocolate chips on hand? Or maybe you have leftover candy from a party or the holidays. Why not convert them into this delicious and easy brownie?

Another benefit of mug cakes: they yield just 1-2 servings which makes it hard to over-indulge and break your diet. Be warned, though: these brownies are sinfully rich!

Now all you need is a 12 ounce coffee mug or two and a microwave oven. Your sweet tooth will thank you!

Tips


  • Try dark chocolate for the richest brownies. Store a bag of dark chocolate Hershey's Kisses or miniatures in the kitchen pantry so you can whip up these brownies at short notice.
  • If you don't have chocolate, substitute 2 Tablespoons of cocoa and 1 Tablespoon of water for the chocolate. Brownies made with cocoa will have a cake-like texture.
  • For less sweet brownies, reduce sugar by one-third.
  • For gluten-free brownies, substitute white rice flour for the unbleached flour in the recipe. Or try equal parts corn flour, garbanzo flour and rice flour. And don't forget to use a gluten-free chocolate such as Scharffen Berger.
  • Brownies made with butter are richer than brownies made with oil.
  • Brown sugar adds rich, caramel flavor to your brownies. Try a combination of white and brown sugar if you'd like.
  • If you're using salted butter, omit additional salt.
  • Break an egg into a bowl and beat it with a fork or whisk. Use half of the eggshell to scoop out about half of the raw egg. You don't have to be very precise on this step.
  • One-and-a-half tablespoons of egg is about half of a large egg.
  • Refrigerate leftover beaten egg to add to your morning scramble or omelette.
  • Mix up ingredients right in the mug for a quick brownie. When making two mug brownies, mix them up in a bowl and spoon batter into two mugs.
  • A 1400 watt microwave oven was used for baking these mug brownies.
  • Bake brownies one mug at a time for even cooking.
  • Bake 50 seconds for fudgy brownies; bake 60 seconds for chewy brownies. Be careful not to over-bake the brownies.
  • Cool brownies at least 20 minutes before eating.
  • Microwave brownies in fancy ramekins, such as those seen at right. You'll have a dessert fit for guests and they'll think you spent hours slaving in the kitchen.
  • Serve mug brownies topped with a scoop of ice cream for a special treat.
  • Pour Kahlua, Amaretto liqueur or hot fudge over brownie sundae for a dessert that will make you popular with your friends!
  • Stick around after the recipe for recommended brownie variations.

While the brownies cool...

Brownies need at least twenty minutes to cool. While you're waiting, why not wash the dishes and take out the trash? That will give you something to do as the aroma of cooling brownies fills the kitchen, tempting you to dig in too soon!

Instructions

  1. Break or cut chocolates in half. Place in a small bowl with butter and microwave on 50% power for 1 minute. Stir until smooth and melted.
  2. In a separate bowl, beat sugar, vanilla and egg very well. Add melted chocolate mixture and beat thoroughly.
  3. Last of all, add dry ingredients (flour, optional salt and baking powder) and stir well.
  4. Evenly spoon brownie batter into two 12-ounce coffee mugs.
  5. Microwave on high for 50-60 seconds. Don't overbake.
  6. Allow brownies to cool at least 20 minutes so you don't burn your tongue.
  7. Serve with hot coffee or a tall glass of cold milk. Enjoy

Variations & Add-ins

  • Swirl a little peanut butter or caramel ice cream topping into brownie batter before microwaving.
  • Serve your brownie ala mode with vanilla ice cream and hot fudge or Kahlua.
  • Mix a few chocolate chips, Reese's pieces, M&M's, toffee bits or butterscotch chips into brownie batter before baking.
  • If you like nuts try adding roasted peanuts, walnuts, pecans, chopped macadamias or a combination.

    I have made the microwave cake before but never the brownies. I am not sure I could wait and let them cool. LOL

    Thanks for this.

    Oh by all means! I have folded in white chocolate chips, dry roasted peanuts, pecans, toffee bits, butterscotch chips, I've also used brown sugar instead.

    I love butterscotch and pecans and my family likes the other ingredients.

    I didn't add them all at once, just as requested, plus I've used them in oven baked brownies before.

    I forgot to say that I substituted the same amount of rice flour for the wheat flour in your recipe.

    This is a winner! I multiplied your recipe to make 4 cups (two w/choc chips on top - two with dab of peanut butter. Baked 2 cups at a time for 60 seconds and they were perfect...and delicious. I have already eaten my two. (OK I am a pig - but my excuse was I had to give you the results of both ):) lol

    Thank you so very much. No more leftovers! I may never bake another cake.

    This looks perfect for brownie lovers -- which I am one. I like the idea of the liquid eggs available in the package already for cooking over trying to measure 1 and 3/4 egg from a real egg for this recipe and I think it was so nice of you to put measurements for the recipe in both metric and imperial methods. (Our measurements in the U.S. are called Imperial, for those who may not be aware.)

    Gave you 5 more stars. Looking forward to trying this recipe out! :)

    Jackie Lynnley, I know it's hard to believe but you only microwave a mug brownie for 50-60 seconds. I prefer them a little fudgier at 50 seconds while my husband enjoys the chewier 60 second time. Please tell me what you think if you have a chance. : )

    O my...I am on a serious weight reduction plan and I see this. I am a true chocolholic....this looks so yummy. I wish I could reach in with a spoon and scoop out a bite. Yum.

    Om Paramapoonya, I hadn't thought of this as an eco-friendly recipe. Thanks! Now I need to make them more often!

    Love it! This recipe not only saves time but also electricity. I guess we can say this is an eco-friendly way to make brownies :)

    IndieJoe, what a great idea! I'll link this to my coffee ice cream recipe. Why didn't I come up with that?? You think like a true ice cream lover. : ) Thanks for the votes and all your support!

    Who knew this was even possible?! Can't wait to try this a la mode. I'm going to check the Vespawoolf recipes for some great ice cream ideas...something mocha should do the trick. Thanks for posting. Voted up. Way up!

    Truthfornow, I also enjoy this recipe since between my husband and I, we can't finish a whole pan of brownies. This is a quick way to satisfy a craving, too. Thanks for the vote and comment!

    Toytasting, I have never made the recipe without eggs but I'll try that next chance I get. If you have a chance to try it, please come back and leave feedback. Thanks for your vote and share!

    Like this idea very much ~ a way to have fresh brownies all the time. No more getting staled and dried out in the fridge. Voted up and useful.
