Super Fast Microwave Fudge
In a large bowl, combine 1/4 cup of butter, 1 14-oz can of condensed milk and 1 12-oz bag of semisweet chocolate chips. With your microwave set on high, heat everything for 1 1/2 minutes. Stir afterwards. If the chocolates are not completely melted, heat for a few more seconds.
Stir until everything is mixed well. Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1/2 cups of chopped nuts. Stir. Place everything in a large pan lined with foil, spread very well and stash the pan in the fridge for a couple of hours. Cut into squares and serve.
Simple Single-Serve Carrot Cake
Place 1/4 cup of flour, 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, 1 tablespoon of sugar, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon powder, 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg and a dash of salt in a microwavable mug. Stir in 1 tablespoon of milk, 1 tablespoon of coconut oil and 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla. Finally, add a 1 medium-sized carrot (grated) and stir everything well.
Set your microwave on high and cook the single-serve carrot cake for about 1 1/2 minutes. It’s a great idea to serve this really simple dessert topped with vanilla yogurt!
Delectable Dark Chocolate Fondue
This phenomenal dessert is really easy to make. All you have to do place the contents of a 1-oz bag of dark chocolate (broken into small pieces) in a large bowl. Heat in the microwave for about a minute and stir afterwards. If you can still see chunks of chocolates, heat for a few more seconds.
Gradually stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons of canned coconut milk until you end up with the consistency you prefer. Serve with strawberries, bananas, mini pretzels, marshmallows, vanilla wafers and others you like.
Bodacious Brownie in a Mug
Grab a medium-sized microwavable mug. Place 1/4 cup of flour, 1/4 cup of sugar, 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa, a pinch of cinnamon and a pinch of salt in the mug and stir using a fork. Make sure to break up those clumps. Stir in 2 tablespoons of canola oil, 1/4 cup of water and a couple of drops of vanilla.
Set your microwave on high and cook for about 1 minute and 40 seconds. Always check the consistency of your brownie, making sure that it’s moist and not dry. Once cooked, allow to cool for a while and serve.
