Starting the New Year off Right….

Don’t be shocked that it’s only 2 days into the New Year and I am posting a dessert recipe. I get it. It’s a brand new year. Half the nation just started diets, but I didn’t. Been there. Done that. It makes me miserable. I am all about moderation. And this mug cake is all about moderation. Instead of having pans of brownies or cake staring you in the face for 3 days, you have an individually-sized brownie cake. Eat it. Enjoy it. Work out longer that day. And be happy. 
Just look at that goodness. Simple ingredients, a microwave, and a few minutes of your time. That’s it. It’s just a great idea to keep Thrive Life Fudge Brownie Mix stocked in your pantry at all times for dessert emergencies :). I ran out last week and almost cried when I had one of the kids go back to our trusty rotating shelf and we were out of brownie mix! Ingredients for brownie mug cakeNow on to the recipe!….
