Brownie in a mug recipe
Quick and Yummy Brownie
Did you know that cooking is a great craft for you to do with your children? Sure to be a hit!
I use to do preschool out of my home many years ago and every Friday the kids and I would cook. I would let them help me measure, spoon, crack eggs, roll, cut, and stir as we put our recipe together. It is a great time to practice counting skills. I have a recipe to share that is awesome to make with our children. It is a Brownie in a mug and is extremely easy and very yummy! So the next time you have a blah blah rainy day with nothing to do, you can make one of these goodies. For Momma it’s a quick fix if you are craving a jolt of chocolate or a bit of sweetness. Most of the ingredients are staples you most likely have in your pantry. Let each child make their own right in the coffee mug.
This is a fabulous idea for a Birthday, give each child a cup painted with chalk board paint, with the recipe for the Coffee mug brownie on the mug.
