Easy One-Minute Nestlé® Crunch® Hot Fudge Brownie Cake

December 30, 2018

Here’s a super-easy way to appease those out-of-the-blue chocolate cravings we all get every once in a while, a One-Minute Hot Fudge Brownie Cake (with Nestlé® Crunch®).

Nestle Crunch Microwavable Mug Cake1

We did a 5-Minute Salted Caramel Mug Cake before, but sometimes, a girl just needs that special kind of comfort that only a moist, gooey, 100% chocolate cake can provide. Unfortunately, it’s not exactly easy to find at a moment’s notice (unless you steal the slice someone else left in the office pantry at your typical 9-5).

If thievery isn’t really your thing, we suggest you start stocking up on the ingredients below and keep them in your office drawer for that inevitable cake emergency. The best part? This hot fudge brownie cake takes only a single minute to make.

We specifically used Nestlé® Crunch® because of its classic milky chocolate flavor. It’s the perfect complement to the bittersweet cocoa powder. The rice crispies, for their part, add more texture, depth, (and fun!) to this sinful dessert.
