You can eat the Microwave Brownie in a Mug as is but the my favorite way to enjoy a chocolate mug brownie is with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. You can also use it to make a brownie ice cream sundae using any flavor ice cream you enjoy. If you really want a sweet treat to add some hot fudge or chocolate syrup, ice cream, whipped cream, and some sprinkles for a fully loaded fudgy mug brownie ice cream sundae.
