1 Minute Chocolate Brownie in a Mug… a quick dessert for when you need something sweet.
Carrie Bradshaw said, “Enjoy yourself. That’s what your 20s are for. Your 30s are to learn the lessons.” Boy was she right. I don’t know when life got so complicated.
So yeah, at this very moment I feel lost, confused, and defeated.
I question the meaning of life and what my purpose is.
I question the path that I am on.
I question if everything happens exactly the way it is suppose to happen.
I question what if I had done things differently, would I still be on the same path?
I question if things will turn out okay.
After attempting 3 different recipes, I settled on this one because it tastes pretty darn good for a microwave recipe. This Chocolate Brownie in a Mug takes about a minute in the microwave, it’s perfectly delicious and indulgent, and ideal for sharing with someone on Valentine’s Day. Enjoy!
