dorm room food: microwave brownies

Many times, living in a dorm really limits your ability to be creative with food. One thing we've been seeing all over the internet though is microwave brownies. Super easy to make, and delicious. For our version you will need:

2 T flour
2 T PB2 (original or chocolate)
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 T unsweetened cocoa powder
pinch of salt
2 T coconut oil
2 T coffee

First mix up all the dry ingredients, then add in the wet, until all combined. Pop it into the microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds, checking it every 30 seconds until it is almost completely set, but still a little gooey.

For the sauce:
1 square baking chocolate
2 tsp coconut oil
sprinkle espresso powder
4 tsp cocoa powder
2 tsp brown sugar

Now, the sauce seriously makes it. It isn't super sweet, but it balances out the brownie. If you want it sweeter, just add some more brown sugar. Melt all of this in the microwave until smooth, checking every 30 seconds. we kept adding cocoa powder until we liked the consistency, so feel free to adjust that to your own preferences.

This makes one enormous brownie, which turns out to be just the right amount to split between two people.
