My new best friend

I have been having the WORST chocolate cravings lately. Specifically chocolate chip cookies.

(Before you can even think it, no, I’m not pregnant. Just…me.)

This is a problem for multiple reasons.

1. As much as I love chocolate and will champion the argument that it’s fine to eat every day in moderation, the crux of that argument is “in moderation.” Meaning I shouldn’t eat it after (or for) every meal no matter how badly my brain is saying, “NOMNOMNOM.”

2. I don’t really keep a lot of sweets in the house. So if I want a chocolatey baked good, I have to either buy it or make it.

3. If I make chocolatey baked goods, I will have to eat the whole thing myself. Because the hubs doesn’t like chocolate. (I KNOW, right??) And as much as I would LIKE to eat an entire package of Pillsbury Break-and-Bake cookies by myself…well…just see #1 again.

Which brings us full circle.

And is ALSO why this idea on Pinterest caught my eye and has been tempting me all morning:

BROWNIE IN A MUG. The full recipe is here on Babble.

It seems almost too good to be true, right? Rich, brownie goodness in minutes? In a single-serve portion? IT CAN’T BE DONE.

Of course, that doesn’t mean I don’t fully intend to try it. Has anyone attempted anything similar? Was it awesome? Or awful?
