By Greg Simpson, Staff Writer

1 Tablespoon unsalted butter

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/8 teaspoon (pinch) salt

1 egg yolk

3 Tablespoons all-purpose flour

1-2 Tablespoons chocolate chips


Microwave butter in a mug until melted, 30 seconds to 1 minute. With a spoon, mix in sugars, vanilla extract and salt until well-combined. Mix in egg yolk until no traces of the yolk are seen. Mix in flour. Fold in chocolate chips.

Microwave on high for 40 seconds, or a maximum of 50 seconds. Serve warm (maybe even with a dollop of ice cream).

I chose my 2nd favorite coffee mug to do this in because I figured if this went wrong my “Espresso Patronus” mug could take the fall. The instructions were fairly straightforward, the hardest part is assembling the ingredients and ripping yourself away from the TV to make this. When it came out it was a bit al dente on the top but the inside was most definitely finished. If I had it to make all over again I would get some ice cream to put on top and it would be a great treat to make during the commercial break of Pretty Little Liars.
