I like to keep a brownie mix around the house, you know, just in case there is a baking emergency. Of course, these emergencies almost never happen, and then I spy the box on the top shelf of the cabinet and decide my chocolate craving qualifies as an emergency.
This time, I used Trader Joe’s Reduced Guilt Brownie mix to make a single brownie. You combine 2T of the mix with 1T yogurt in a mug, and then microwave it for 45 seconds. The box suggests vanilla yogurt, but plain is the staple at my house. The batter was fairly stiff, but it did produce a moist chocolate brownie which was plenty sweet. It wasn’t the prettiest brownie, but it satisfied my chocolate craving well. Now, if I can just hide the box so I don’t make one of these every night….

There IS such a thing as a Chocolate emergency!
I totally agree with Kelly…:)
Do you remember the canister of instant pudding that let you make one serving of pudding in about 2mins? Senior year of college, I lived off of that stuff. These brownies reminded me of that and I'm plotting a trip to TJ's as I type! -Lee 😉
