Sometimes after dinner and after the kids go to bed, my husband and I want something sweet…but I don’t want to make a huge batch of brownies that will tempt our waistlines throughout the week. Here’s the perfect treat…awesome gooey brownies for two!

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (1 ounce) square unsweetened chocolate
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 2 serving-size oven-proof custard dishes.
  2. 2 Place chocolate and butter in a small microwaveable bowl. Microwave on high 1 minute. Stir until chocolate melts completely. Add sugar. Stir in beaten egg and vanilla extract. Mix thoroughly. Add flour; mix well. Divide brownie batter between 2 prepared custard dishes.
  3. 3 Bake in preheated oven until center of brownies has risen and surface appears glossy, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.

  1. it did not turn out gooey at all. it was good and cake like. nothing great.
  2. I didn't have any squares of unsweetened chocolate, so I subbed 3 T. cocoa and 1 T. butter (for a total of 4 T. butter in recipe). This baked up very well with a crusty top and a tender center. Would be wonderful warm with vanilla ice cream! Baking time was 30 minutes.
